The aim of the Faculty of Engineering is to cultivate human resources with leadership capabilities, who have mastered the learning, techniques and research methods desired of researchers, engineers and designers in the field of engineering, who can discover academic and practical issues from an interdisciplinary standpoint and the ability to resolve such issues. They will also possess sound judgment with regard to society and awareness of their responsibility, and who can contribute to the maintenance and development of culture. In order to achieve this objective, education in the Faculty of Engineering consists of studies regarding fundamental contents in various specialized fields related to science and technology through lectures, laboratories, discussions and graduation research, as well as studies on various basic subjects that serve as the foundation for specialized subjects. Furthermore, rather than focusing only on science and technology, broad studies are also carried out on vast knowledge, common sense and ethics necessary for engineers, as well as on general education that serves as the basis of comprehensive judgment and decision-making abilities to create things based on interdisciplinary, international and sensible ideas, by making use of the environmental conditions of an urban campus.

For over 50 years the Faculty of Engineering has produced graduates with the ability to better our world through fundamental contributions in the field of manufacturing. In April 2016, a new Department of Information and Computer Technology was established. We are moving from an era focused on computer and telecommunications hardware development towards an era focused on big data utilization, applications creation and other software development. The new Department of Information and Computer Technology has been established to explore ways in which data can be utilized in developing the systems of the future. The Faculty of Engineering, as well, is committed to continual self-improvement and undertakes cutting-edge research and education focused on next-generation manufacturing. Specifically, the Faculty of Engineering provides a robust curriculum focused on computer-based mastery of IT, as well as prepares students to be competitive in an increasingly globalized world by encouraging English language skills development and active participation in overseas research exchange and international conferences. Furthermore, the zeal students have to "meaningfully contribute to society through manufacturing" is matched by an advanced, professional education curriculum which thoroughly conveys the essentials of manufacturing. Also, through this professional education curriculum we endeavor to cultivate engineers and technicians who recognize the tremendous power manufacturing has to fundamentally change society and who will then make ethical decisions which will benefit human progress. More than anything, the mission of the Faculty of Engineering is to train up globally-minded graduates who are both eager and able to take on new challenges.
