Of the many fields of engineering, mechanical engineering in particular is directly connected with society. Through innovative "monozukuri" — the Japanese way of making products — we aim to enrich the future of humanity by removing difficulties that exist in the world and provide greater comfort. In order to realize such ideas, the Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a broad and systematic educational curriculum and an advanced research and development environment to produce scientists and engineers with diverse abilities.
The Master's Program fosters individuals who have the creativity to solve problems from a social perspective using their systematic knowledge that consists of basic principles of mechanical engineering. It also cultivates those who contribute to the advancement of science and technology to resolve social problems.
The Doctoral Program fosters individuals who can promote innovative advanced research in mechanical engineering based on their systematic specialized knowledge of this field as well as their broad knowledge of related academic fields. It also develops individuals with leadership skills and practical abilities to propose and solve research problems with an international perspective that will resolve social issues, and cultivates those who can create new values and contribute their research achievements back to society.
