The Department of Applied Electronics specifies its educational philosophy as being the "creation of science and technology from the standpoint of a broad engineering infrastructure and harmonization of people and nature," and its objective is to cultivate human resources who can contribute to the development of science and technology from multilateral and new perspectives, who also possess abundant human qualities and creative abilities as well as international character.

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Electronic Devices

    Electrons in a substance exhibit various characteristics when reacting to light, heat, or to an electric or magnetic field. On the other hand, it is also possible to take advantage of their characteristics to generate these energies. Substances created to exhibit such kinds of functional characteristics are called electronic devices.

    Fujishiro-Endo Research Group / Ikuno Research Group / Tokiwa Research Group

  • ICT Systems

    This area mainly includes signal processing, communications and human interfaces. Connecting people with machines or other people, these technologies are essential for enriching people’s lives in our modern society.

    Aikawa Research Group / Harada Research Group / Itami Research Group

  • Measurement Control Systems

    Measurement and control include, for example, keeping the speed of a vehicle at a target value by measuring the speed using a tachometer or the like, comparing that speed with the target value, and manipulating the output of the engine by means of a controller (microcomputer) according to the difference.

    Kai Research Group / Shiba Research Group / Taniguchi Research Group

  • Computer Systems

    Nowadays, computers are used everywhere, and are now even in the process of being organically connected. Based on highly developed hardware and basic/applied software, computers support today’s information society as a system.

    Ando Research Group / Masuda Research Group / Satake Research Group
