Department of Creative Engineering

In the Department of Creative Engineering, all the students spend one and a half year studying fundamental common subjects for engineering in the first year and the first half of the second year. From the second semester of 2nd year, the students will choose one specific engineering course from five specialized ones as their expertise: Machine Systems Engineering Course, Robotics and Mechatronics Course, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course, Information and Systems Engineering Course and Materials Chemistry Course. This education system provides the students with opportunities to learn basis of knowledge and technology in wide engineering fields as well as to acquire advanced expertise about the engineering field in which they are interested. In addition, they study various subjects in general education for five year ; they can acquire a degree as an internationally-minded engineer.

Machine Systems Engineering Course

The Machine Systems Engineering Course will cultivate the students to be the mechanical engineers with technological morality, who take the active parts all over the world.

In response to the remarkable technological innovation in the industrial world, we are striving to develop engineers with the ability and drive to develop new technologies by offering a full range of subjects related to automation and advanced technologies so that they can be active not only in mechanical engineering, but also in a wide range of fields including general industry.

The graduates are working for the various fields of modern industries such as automobile, iron and steel, electronics, chemical industry and so on.

Department of Creative Engineering
Robotics and Mechatronics Course

The Robotics and Mechatronics Course aims to train robot engineers who can give shape to their own ideas and build robots with their own hands.

In order for a machine to perform complex tasks that have been performed by humans through intelligence and sensory perception, the machine itself must be able to accurately grasp the surrounding information (environment and conditions), think logically based on that information, and operate according to that thinking. Furthermore, the technology to realize such robots will be used in many products around us, and in a future society where robots will be used to create a variety of services, the technology will directly contribute to solving social issues. Therefore, we train excellent human resources who can propose and design their own solutions to problems from the user's point of view and in social implementation, making full use of robot technology.

Department of Creative Engineering
Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering Course aims to nurture electrical and electronic engineers who can respond to rapid technological changes and work in any field or location by continuing to learn on their own. 3rd year and above students learn specialized knowledge and skills in electrical and electronic engineering (electricity, electronics, information, and equipment), building on the engineering foundation learned by the 2nd year. While providing sufficient subjects and experiments necessary for graduates to be certified as chief electrical engineers, the program also focuses on power electronics education, which is important for the energy infrastructure, robotics, and automobile industries, in order to meet the future needs of the region and industry.

Upon completion of the necessary work experience after graduation, students can obtain a national license as a Class 2 Chief Electrical Engineer.

Department of Creative Engineering
Information and Systems Engineering Course

The Information and Systems Course aims to develop practical engineers with the understanding and creativity to flexibly respond to technological changes in an advanced information society.

In the field of computer applications, planning, analysis, design, development, construction, and operation of computer systems, network systems, measurement and control systems, information and communication systems, and other ICT (Information and Communication Technology) based systems require an understanding of system software and hardware knowledge and technology. The course is designed to provide students with a thorough knowledge of the software and hardware of these systems. Therefore, the curriculum in this course is structured so that students can acquire knowledge and skills in software and hardware in a systematic manner.

Department of Creative Engineering
Materials Chemistry Course

The Materials Chemistry Course aims to develop elite engineers who, based on chemical processes rooted in material chemistry, acquire engineering knowledge and practical skills to deal with diversified and complicated problems such as clean energy, development of highly functional materials, foods, and pharmaceuticals, and effective utilization of resources.

Graduates are active in many industrial fields, including materials development, quality control, chemical product manufacturing, chemical plants, biotechnology, food, pharmaceutical manufacturing, environment and energy.
