    400-Level and 500-Level Courses

    The curriculum in the Graduate Major in Systems and Control Engineering develops (1) specialized mathematical scientific academic ability for modeling and computerizing, and analyzing real systems, (2) specialized mathematical scientific academic ability for creating and controlling real systems of new value, (3) ability to apply acquired specialized knowledge, (4) ability to accurately understand social problems, and establish and resolve tasks, and (5) ability to communicate and give presentations based on logical thinking. In order to achieve this, we have designed an educational program where the following five courses are organically arranged; Mathematics, Information, Measurement Control and Modeling, Real System Design, and Project Practice. This curriculum develops individuals who acquire forward-looking knowledge for measurement, control, design, and system science, who have adaptable inventiveness, creativity, and the ability to boldly apply this to new tasks.

    • Mathematics
      Students will acquire the knowledge of mathematical science and informatics, which is necessary for understanding and computerizing phenomena, and system configuration and control.
    • Information
      Students will master software design and programming skills necessary for designing systems.
    • Measurement Control and Modeling
      Students will gain specialized knowledge and advanced knowledge of modeling, sensing, and control.
    • Real System Design
      Students will acquire the practical and specialized knowledge for designing and developing actual systems.
    • Project Practice
      Group training, individual training, and internships are conducted to put into practice advanced knowledge related to mathematics and information, and system creation and control; and to acquire the ability necessary for finding, setting, and resolving tasks, communicating, and giving presentations.
    • Research Seminars
      Basic ability for proceeding with research is mastered by documenting the research process, and by having discussions with other researchers and academic supervisors. At the same time, students enhance their task-setting and resolving skills through master's thesis research.

    600-Level Courses

    Using the broad academic knowledge of systems and control acquired prior to tthe Master's Program, and a systems perspective, students develop the following: (1) the academic and practical ability to discover one's own research tasks in relation to actual problems and to conduct research, (2) the ability to understand and organize trends in research and development from a sophisticated systems' perspective, and (3) the ability to contribute one's research achievements back to society by making new creative proposals reinforced by solid expertise. To realize this, we provide Research Process Courses that develop the ability to manage practical and creative proposals for research, and ability to give presentations; Research Seminars that foster ability to conduct research and systemize learning; and Career Courses that encourage students to engage with society. The curriculum is designed so that students can flexibly plan and complete their individual learning.

    • Research Seminars
      Through doctoral thesis research, students master the ability to discover tasks and the ability to contribute research achievements back to society.
    • Research Management
      We provide opportunities for gaining various experiences such as assisting with lectures and international exchange.
    • Liberal Arts
      Students can acquire a broad education, including in humanities.
