New department and divisions
Department of Engineering for Future Innovation
To date, students have been separated since entering in their first year. From 2017, first-year students will all follow the same department: Department of Engineering for Future Innovation, and will be separated into four divisions upon entering their second year. Education system of each new division is as follows:
Division of Mechanical and Intelligent Systems Engineering
Students will acquire extensive knowledge in the field of machine intelligence, including design techniques for building machines, knowledge of materials, processing methods, knowledge of heat and flow, control theories, and measurement techniques. In addition, we will train next-generation mechanical engineers who can operate in future-oriented fields, including next-generation robots, EVs (electric vehicles) and other next-generation vehicles, and forms of renewable energy use such as hydroelectricity, wind power, and geothermal energy.
Division of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Students will learn about technology applications in electrical and electronics fields, such as physical phenomena related to electricity and magnetism in the areas of electrical engineering and electronics and electrical apparatuses such as circuits and motors, materials, and energy. In addition, we will train next-generation electrical engineers who can operate in applied fields such as electric power production and supply and electronic equipment and vehicle control.
Division of Computer Engineering and Informatics
Students will learn about technology applications in the fields of information and software, including programming for information engineering, application development, network systems, computer graphics, the Internet of things, and cyber security. In addition, we will train next-generation IT engineers who can operate in applied fields such as robotics (artificial intelligence) and smart car (i.e., self-driving vehicle ) development.
Division of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology
Students will learn about technology applications in the fields of chemistry and biotechnology, including technology related to chemical engineering (for the efficient production of chemical products) and biotechnology (for the use of microorganisms and enzymes). In addition, we will train next-generation chemical technicians who can operate in applied fields and have the required skills to develop chemical products that enrich human life (plastics, pharmaceutical products, foods, and new materials) and to solve environmental and energy problems.
