The Division of Mechanics Engineering sets the following goals:

  • Cultivating students’ capacity to address various complex technical issues so as to gain wide knowledge and deep understanding of the impact of industrial products and their production processes related to the environment and society. Students also need to obtain expertise and integrated skills which can be applied to address multiple critical issues.
  • Achieving intellectual development of students, who are encouraged to continuously explore their specialties while engaging in meeting the desired needs of society.
  • Developing students’ communication skills necessary to participate actively in global society, which can be achieved through logical thinking process training and proficiency-based language learning.

To achieve these goals, the graduate programs provide an integrated curriculum in which students are expected to explore dynamics-oriented areas including mechanics of materials, dynamics of machinery, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics as well as material science, and precision machining. Students are also encouraged to extend their research to other areas including electrical and electronic engineering and control engineering. This multi-dimensional research approach helps them develop and improve their engineering ability in order to use integrated techniques and skills and sophisticated engineering tools necessary for a well-balanced engineering practice. With a strong emphasis on a comprehensive research approach, we cultivate students’ knowledge so that they can contribute to developing modern technologies.
