The Faculty of Engineering aims to be a faculty that is deeply rooted in Miyazaki Prefecture and likewise maintains a global perspective. The faculty emphasizes the education of personnel who will be able to rise to new challenges with the accelerating progress of science and technology. It also emphasizes internationally high quality acclaimed academic research, while ensuring a substantial intellectual contribution to the local community through the development of local industries. In April 2012, we reorganized the faculty into seven new departments and adopted an advanced, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary approach in the field of education and research, working together cooperatively. This serves the purpose of developing scientific technology that can meet the challenges of the global environment in the 21st century. Further, we cultivate a high level of awareness of humanitarian issues among our students.
The mission of agriculture in the 21st century is to overcome global food problems and environmental crises through production, development, and utilization of biological resources for maintaining a coexistence with all life on Earth.

The Faculty of Regional Innovation, launched in 2016, aims to contribute to sustainable regional development. The new faculty has generated high expectations for its objective of contributing to regional and industrial development on the basis of the natural and social resources as well as the accumulated knowledge and expertise of the University of Miyazaki.The educational approach of the new faculty emphasizes the need to gain management knowledge and skills. Students learn subjects with a strong emphasis on management, while acquiring basic knowledge in a range of academic disciplines needed to understand local resources and tackle regional problems, such as the social sciences, agriculture, and engineering. On the basis of this approach, the faculty aims to cultivate students to become regional innovators able to comprehensively manage sustainable regional development through addressing socio-economic problems (e.g., population decline and stagnant regional economies) and to create innovative value within the regional industrial and business setting through recognizing and utilizing the available local resources.
