The universal principle of the Department of Industrial Administration is to teach and research, not conventional engineering centered on unique technology, but comprehensive, optimized methodology to the activities of companies and organizations based on scientific and engineering knowledge and technology. This methodology includes information systems, production systems, social systems, management mathematics and management systems, and our goal is to offer education and research allowing students to systematically learn cutting-edge specialist knowledge covering a wide area to respond to the needs of society.

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Information Engineering

    In this research, we extract information from and discover knowledge in gigantic Internet or genome databases. Research on cutting-edge information systems integrates a large number of computers and robots into living spaces to create a comfortable and people-friendly environment.

    Harada Research Group / Nishiyama Research Group / Owada Research Group

  • Production Systems Engineering

    In this area, we research the methodology for economically creating a fast and smooth "material flow" from raw material procurement up to production and sales, while fully utilizing management resources such as information, equipment, people, and capital.

    Hibino Research Group / Ishigaki Research Group

  • Social Systems Engineering

    Perceiving a company, a factory, the global environment or other extremely complex structure as a system, we express the relations among its constituent elements by use of a model described by a large number of numerical and theoretical formulas, and search for measures to improve the system in question through simulations or various experiments.

    Dowaki Research Group / Seo Research Group

  • Management Mathmatics

    To carry out human business such as corporate activities or social activities in an efficient manner, it is firstly important to express behavior or a phenomenon by use of a mathematical or statistical model. Using this model, we can find the solution which is optimal from a scientific and objective perspective.

    Suzuki Research Group / Takashima Research Group

  • Management Systems Engineering

    Corporate activities and social activities are run by groups (organizations) of humans. A management system is a scheme of various ideas for ensuring the functionality and adequacy of the activities of an organization. Famous examples include quality management, cost management, and environmental management.
