Faculty of Engineering & Graduate School of Engineering

Faculty of Engineering (6 Departments)

The Faculty of Engineering covers a very wide range of subject areas as most of other universities in Japan. There are six Departments, each of which offers its characteristic course covering from the fundamental study to the frontiers of advanced technology. Lectures are normally given in Japanese. A student who completes the course acquires a degree of Bachelor of Engineering. More details can be found in the home page of each department, which can be reached from the top page of the Faculty of Engineering.

Graduate School of Engineering (6 Master Courses; 2 Doctoral Courses)

Each department offers the program of its postgraduate course for two years. A student who completes the course with Master's thesis can acquire the Master of Engineering. The five master courses in the current program correspond to the five departments before the reorganization of 1999. They will be reorganized to six courses to match the current undergraduate program in the near future. Details of the program can be found in the home page of each course, which can be reached from the top page of the Faculty of Engineering.

For those who wish to challenge the Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering, two courses in the Doctors program including Materials Science and Energy Engineering and Systems Engineering provide research opportunities covering wide range of subject areas, some of which involve research in collaboration with world level laboratories. More details can be found in the home pages of corresponding faculty members.

Facilities

Faculty of Engineering and the Graduate School of Engineering are housed in its own, purpose designed building of two six floors linked by two floors lecture block, as well as a new building for the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering just completed in May, 2000 having lecture rooms, laboratories, service sections and public spaces for students. Also there is a wind tunnel laboratory for experiments on environmental and fluid dynamic problems.
