This Department covers the fields of electrical engineering (energy and the environment), electrical engineering (electronics and devices), information communications engineering, and peripheral areas. Curricula have been created so that it is possible to progress towards any of these fields.
In response to the shift to interdisciplinarity in recent years, we train internationally-minded and highly ethical professionals who possess planning abilities and a sense of judgment across multiple fields.

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Energy / Control / Environment

    Energy is the source of everything. By appropriately controlling electric energy, it is possible to manufacture automobiles in factories, run shinkansen bullet trains, operate robots, create a comfortable life with light, and to realize a safe and rich social environment.

    Hoshi Research Group / Imura Research Group / Katayama Research Group / Kimura Research Group / Kondoh Research Group / Nakamura Research Group

  • Information / Communications / Computers

    The term "information" points to music, images, data, and the like. The exchange of this information is called communication. A computer is capable of various things, including processing and communication.

    Higuchi Research Group / Igarashi Research Group / Maeda Research Group / Matsuda Research Group / Yamamoto Research Group

  • Electronics / Physical Properties / Materials

    Electronic equipment, computers, and other hardware consist of semiconductor ICs and various devices. In this field, we conduct research on circuits, materials serving as the backbone of these devices, and the physical properties of these materials, thus laying a foundation for the creation of highly functional electronic equipment for new generations.

    Furukawa Research Group / Hyogo Research Group / Nagata Research Group / Sugiyama Research Group / Umeda Research Group
