Mechanical Engineering is an academic field where the knowledge and techniques for developing, designing and manufacturing various industrial products, facilities and mechanical systems, such as automobiles, aircrafts, robots, computers, power plants and petroleum refinery plants, are organized together. The educational philosophy and objective of this department is to carry out academic research related to monozukuri(manufacturing) that contributes to lasting development of societies for all mankind and to cultivate advanced and specialized engineers and researchers.

  • Acquire basic scholastic ability and an engineering sense that can support the latest scientific technology.
  • Cultivate the ability to discover problems on one's own, make approaches toward such problems systematically, resolve them, and achieve targets.
  • Foster the capability to multilaterally understand the impacts that technology has on human beings, society and the global environment, as well as to take action for their sustained development.
  • Cultivate the ability to appropriately explain the true value of the results that one is aiming to achieve to general society.
