Science and technology have become increasingly sophisticated and complex in recent years. As a result, a narrow, specialized knowledge has become insufficient for designing, operating and controlling equipment and systems, let alone developing technologies.
Also, there has been growing expectation that knowledge gained through basic research in boundary areas will lead to the discovery of new scientific laws and concepts, the formulation of new theories and the development of new basic technologies. Under these circumstances, researchers and engineers possessing comprehensive and interdisciplinary expertise are highly sought after. It is essential to foster human resources with rich creativity who have broad and deep knowledge and skills in scientific and technological fields.
The Graduate School of Engineering has two principal aims. The first is to contribute to academic progress by developing and disseminating scientific and technological knowledge and information acquired through creative, pioneering research. The second is to foster researchers and engineers who have a rich command of basic knowledge and advanced specialized knowledge, as well as broad interdisciplinary understanding.
