School of Engineering
English-based Degree Program: N/A
The School of Engineering evolved from the School of Computer Science that was established in 1990. Based on 23 years of recognized achievement in Information Science, the school was reorganized as the School of Information Science and Engineering in 2006 to respond to changing times and the needs of society. It was reorganized once again in 2013 as the School of Engineering fusing manufacturing and information technology.
The School comprises four departments: the Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering and the Department of Electrica and Electronic Engineering, which correspond to demand in manufacturing, and the Department of Information Engineering and the Department of Media Engineering, which correspond to demand in information technology. The School strives to develop engineers with both basic and practical skills.
Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering Location: Nagoya Campus
The objectives of the department focus on fundamental technologies related to machines, electronics, and systems for the development of human resources with a capacity for project execution with the basic knowledge and skills that enable the creation of advanced mechanical system that improve the convenience and quality of life.
The curriculum features experiments and practical training subjects--Basic Engineering Lab A and B (empirical experiment / simulation)--from the first year, leading into manufacturing practice through the four year program that offers practice in manufacturing process, including Mechanical Design and Manufacturing 1 (Structure, design, CAD) and Mechanical Design and Manufacturing 2 (Circuit, control, analysis), eventually leading to individual graduation projects. In order to systematically organize specialized subjects, department-specific subject groups include mechatronics (machine, electronic, information), robotics, and human engineering/design control from which students can choose 3 course models: Mechatronics, Robotics or Automation Systems.
Such a comprehensive study of manufacturing technology enables students to acquire basic knowledge and skills, including the features of mechanical element, and selection of material and processing technology required for the creation of robots, mechanical instruments and system design.
Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Location: Nagoya Campus
The objective of the department is to ensure that students obtain the basics of electrical, electronic and information and communication technologies so that they become engineers who can excel in the rapidly advancing electric and electronic engineering industry.
The curriculum features excellent experimental subjects with an emphasis on basic academic skills and efficient specialized studies in 3 course models. From the second semester of the first year to the first semester of the third year the department assigns four experimental subjects, --Physics Lab, Electric and Electronic Engineering lab 1, 2 and 3--providing detailed instruction in a small class setting that enables students to acquire first-hand practical knowledge. Three course models --Control / Mechatronics, Electronics, and Communication--are designed to allow students to efficiently choose their specialized field.
Electric and electronic engineering is the foundation of the industry and the core for advanced technology. The studies cover electric and electronic engineering, semiconductors and material science, and information communication. Students understandings of the baskc principles in these fields are enhanced by physical experiments, which foster their initiative to systematically acquire skills and technical proficiencies required in their specialized profession.
Department of Information Engineering Location: Toyota Campus
The Department of Information Engineering strives to develop human resources that understand, design, install and operate information systems such as cloud computing and big data linked with networks of advanced parallel and distributed systems.
The curriculum is structured with experimental and training subjects to develop practical skills, such as Information Engineering Lab 1 and 2, and System Creation A and B, that link to graduation projects. There are 8 programming courses, including C Language 1 and 2.
Department-specific subject groups include software systems, networks, hardware and information technology with 3 course models; Computer Engineering, System Software Engineering and Web Net Engineering.
Under the above curriculum, students acquire basic knowledge related to programming and software development, the function and operation of information processing environments, the design and assessment of information processing technology, formal descriptions and reasoning related to information and computations, the design and creation of hardware and software, and the design and development of distributed systems.
Department of Media Engineering Location: Toyota Campus
The objective of the Department of Media Engineering is to train media technicians to take responsible positions in the invention and development of application systems with information communication technology as the media.
The curriculum features experiments and practical training subjects leading to graduation projects, with the addition of computer and network subjects, and programming subjects.
The department also offers visual technology media subjects consisting of Visual Media 1 (Basic), Visual Media 2 (Digital Art), and Visual Media 3 (CG), as well as visual processing subjects consisting of Visual Processing 1 (CG), Visual Processing 2 (Image processing) and Visual Processing 3 (Computer Vision). Students are offered choices of the Media Technology model or the Media Art model.
Under the above curriculum, students acquire basic knowledge and skills related to media technology and media design, such as the creation and operation of networks, the development of application software, basic skills and design skills for contents creation, and the design and development of media information processing systems.
