Graduate School of Systems Engineering Features

Our Graduate School of Systems Engineering consists of a master’s program and a doctor’s program. Until now most graduate programs have focused on deepening the study of various technologies in their respective fields, but our Graduate School is characterized by the adoption of more comprehensive approaches to implement fresh ideas aiming to create new technologies.

We have four fundamental research fields: “Material Science,” “Environmental Science,” “Energy Science” and “Information Science.” We provide barrier free cross-field education/research systems with greater interaction between fields. Master’s program students are required to choose and complete two or more out of seven categories of their four fundamental research fields, and in addition. “Basic Mathematical Science,” “Advance Courses” and “Global Career Planning”. Project Training and System Engineering Special Training offer students “practical learning” experience through internship and training programs at private research institutions. Moreover, doctoral students pursue their research on their own initiatives to deepen and develop technologies based on a wide comprehensive vision. By encouraging the utilization of multiple fields, we foster engineers as high-level professionals who are able to contribute to the society where human beings and nature can co-exist.


Cluster of Biotechnology and Chemistry Systems

Research Fields and Features

Cluster of Biotechnology and Chemistry Systems aims to realize a sustainable society by studying interdisciplinary fields of biology and chemistry with “systematic thinking.” We intend to develop body-friendly medical care (biocompatibility) by imitating chemically features of organisms (biomimetics), at the same time utilizing biotechnology. We believe that we can create environmentally-friendly resources and materials through the excavation of new “biomass,” and can make our life more comfortable by utilizing “genome” information in addition. However, the most suitable solutions are not able to acquire when you are focused on only one phenomenon. In the Cluster we conduct research and education that deal with various issues through a “systematic thinking” approach in which we recognize the situation as complexly intertwined problems. In the 21st century, a “safe and secure society where we can live with spiritual richness,” namely, “sustainability” will be the most important keyword.

Cluster of Architecture and Urban Systems

Research Fields and Features

The research field of Architecture and Urban Systems Cluster is environmental science. Our objective is to foster human resources who aim to establish environmental development theory and who can offer, through technological capacity, architectural and urban design plans for comfortable, high-quality human environments, environmental control systems and energy-saving systems.

To achieve these goals the curriculum consists of environmental planning theory, structure theory based on structural systems development such as control technology, and intermediate domain subjects including building materials engineering based on construction materials development. In the doctoral program, architectural design special training and other subjects are designed to help students meet the requirements of operational experience in order to obtain qualifications for architects’ examination. We also offer a student exchange program and dispatch students to Forign College of Art with the aim of fostering human resources with an international view point that have the capacity to learn subjects in other fields.

Cluster of Mechanical Systems Engineering

Research Fields and Features

The research field of Mechanical Systems Cluster is “energy science” and focuses mainly on machinery science such as heat and fluid energy engineering, materials and processing engineering, design engineering and instrumentation control engineering.

The curriculum consists of two systems, mechanical systems and control systems, so that students can acquire more advanced technical knowledge based on their undergraduate learning. Students can also do advanced research in fields of their choice and choose related subjects in energy science in order to cope properly with our highly information-based society. We aim to foster the development of engineers as high-level professionals in their own specialist fields with a wide range of expertise on leading-edge technology for manufacturing.

Cluster of Electronic Engineering and Information Science

Research Fields and Features

Contemporary society is a complex union of human beings, nature and machinery harmonizing and working together. In order to design and build complex systems that support society, knowledge of electronic engineering technology for creating hardware to work with nature, information science for developing software to create effectively functioning hardware, and systems engineering for working the integrated systems are all required.

Cluster of Electronic Engineering and Information Science conducts research and education in the fields where electronic engineering, information science and systems engineering are technically integrated in a cross-sectional way.

Focusing on the five research fields of electron physics, probability environmental information, intelligent information processing, production control engineering and picture information engineering teachers and staff, who are experts in various fields such as characteristic analysis of organic EL devices, electronic measurement, information communication, image processing, artificial intelligence and computer integrated manufacturing information, are fostering the development of experts for creating systems to support contemporary society.
