Curriculum Policy

This department consists of the divisions of which the names are the same as the department names of the Faculty of Engineering. These divisions are the Materials Chemistry Division, Electrical and Computer Engineering Division, Water Environment and Civil Engineering Division, and Mechanical Systems Engineering Division, and Architecture Division. This department provides the education for fostering advanced engineers and researchers who can devise, research, and develop, by themselves, the products satisfying the needs of industries and regions.
This department provides the common subjects (for cultivating fundamental education related to science and engineering required for advanced professionals, researchers, etc.) and special subjects (consisting of lectures, exercises, and experiments utilizing the properties and characteristics of respective fields). Through these subjects, you will acquire advanced professional knowledge and practical techniques. The goal for you in special lectures is to acquire advanced professional knowledge in the department, based on the special education provided by the faculty. The goal in exercises and experiments is to acquire not only practical research capabilities but also research publication capabilities, presentation capabilities, and research management capabilities. Also acquiring and fostering internationality, etc., are important. At the final stage of these subjects, you will write a dissertation or research a particular subject for interpreting the 2-year results, and your result will be evaluated in a final test.
