Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering

The Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering has undertaken curriculum reform with a focus on interdisciplinary basic engineering education and integration of undergraduate and graduate (first-half doctoral course) education. Under the new curriculum, students can acquire basic knowledge and skills in a broad range of disciplines, which were covered by the former Departments of Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Mechanical and Intelligent Engineering. A six-year undergraduate and graduate integrated curriculum allows for a flexible and efficient course of study, from the first year of undergraduate college through the graduate program.
The Department comprises three courses: Mechanical Engineering, Environment and Energy, and Mechanical Systems. Our department aims to develop new research fields and themes at the human-machine interface. By strengthening basic engineering education, as well as practical lab experience and seminar programs, we strive to stimulate student interest and motivation in engineering, from the first year, and to ensure that individual students can select the specialized course best suited to their aptitude. Our three specialized courses are designed to enable students to acquire highly specialized knowledge and skill in their respective fields. We are now developing an education program to cultivate skilled engineers possessing a high level of knowledge and skill that meets international standards (seeking JABEE accreditation).

Points
The mission of the MSE department is to
  • Commit itself to quality "manufacturing education" by ensuring that students acquire extensive basic engineering knowledge and have ample practical experience, such as via experiments and laboratory training.
  • Foster engineers with rich imagination, creativity and flexible mind, who can pursue research and development that will improve human lives in harmony with the global environment.
  • Provide a well-organized curriculum to nurture competent engineers who can play active roles on the international stage.
