Advanced Engineering Course

The two year Advanced Engineering Course, comprised of the Advanced Mechanical and Control System Engineering Course, and the Advanced Electronic and Information System Engineering Course, admits 16 students each year.

Diploma Policy of Advanced Engineering Course

Students who complete the curriculum of the Advanced Engineering Course will have acquired the skills and abilities shown below.

  • With a deepened knowledge of mathematics, physics and other natural sciences subjects, the student is able to apply foundational knowledge to Mechanical and Control Systems Engineering and Electronic and Information Systems Engineering.
  • The student has acquired knowledge of the following specialized technical fields for designing, manufacturing, and operation of machinery and systems. Mechanical and Control Systems Engineering: materials and structures, movement and vibration, energy and flow, information and measurement/control, design and production/management, specialized technical fields of machines and systems Electronic and Information Systems Engineering: Specialized technical fields of electrical/electronics and information/control
  • The student has acquired deeper technical knowledge through practical learning of specialty lab experiments, and at the same time acquired the ability to effectively perform experiments and analyze data.
  • By actively carrying out specialty research the student has developed the indispensable ability to solve problems and find solutions, and can creatively design and undertake research, communicate and cooperate effectively with other researchers, and present findings at academic conferences.
  • By studying engineering ethics in special classes, the student has acquired the ability to understand engineering and technology ethics involved in a wide range of circumstances.
  • Through extracurricular activities and participation in advanced technology lectures and academic societies, the student has learned to work with local communities and as well has acquired a global perspective.

Curriculum Policy of Advanced Engineering Course

The curriculum of the Advanced Engineering Course is broadly divided into General subjects, Specialized common subjects, and Specialized subjects.

[General subjects and Specialized common subjects] include practical English, comparative study of Japanese and Chinese culture, philosophy, social science, mathematics, physics, biology, environment, and experimental method, as well as information processing technology and engineering ethics.

[Specialized subjects] In the Advanced Mechanical and Control System Engineering Course, students learn about materials and structures, exercise and vibration, energy and flow, information and measurement/control, design and production/management, machinery and systems, etc. In the Advanced Electronic and Information System Engineering Course, students learn about fields related to electricity and electronics, and information and control.

Regarding the experimental subjects, we train students for two years to be technicians and researchers through "Special Experiments (4 credits)" and "Thesis Work I and II (8 credits each)" for both majors. In the [Special experiment] subject, students in each major master practical knowledge of a wide range of technologies by conducting experiments on basic science related to their field. [Thesis Work] forms the core of the major, in which students independently devise plans and conduct literature reviews, analysis, and experiments while receiving advice from the academic supervisor. In the process of doing research, students endeavor to get and exchange information from other universities and companies, and acquire knowledge of how to do research along with an understanding of the importance of results that are valued by society. As part of this thesis research, it is obligatory to conduct research outside of school, using the summer holiday etc., and to present the results of the research at related academic conferences at the appropriate time in the academic calendar. In addition, so that they will not be cut off from real-world technology, students can also select elective courses and long-term internships designed to deepen their knowledge, their communication skills, and their understanding of engineering ethics.

Advanced Mechanical and Control System Engineering Course

Advances in industrial technology have been remarkable. Mechanical and control engineers are required to develop what they have learned in their first five years of college. Furthermore, engineers are now expected to have a strong interdisciplinary grasp between mechanical and control engineering.

In the Advanced Mechanical and Control System Engineering program, students will broaden their knowledge in their own fields while improving their grasp in related fields, so that they can apply advanced mechanical and control techniques to system research, design and development.

Advanced Electronics and Information System Engineering Course

The Advanced Electronic and Information System Engineering Course takes an in-depth look at both fundamental and applied Engineering, including systems Engineering. Graduates of this course are expected to be able to design and develop electrical/electronic systems related information technique, and act as production managers in the field.
