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