Department of Mechanical Engineering and Intelligent Systems

The systems − such as energy, production, transport, distribution, communications and information − that support industry and life in today's society are maintained by machines and mechatronics containing advanced electronics and informatics. Examples are robots, automobiles, aircraft, industrial devices, information devices and household appliances. To handle research and development in the ceaselessly evolving mechatronics field requires systems design skills that integrate the basic knowledge and conceptual methods from mechanical engineering, measurement and control engineering, electronic engineering and information engineering. The goal of this department is to cultivate expert specialized engineers who have mastered these skills.

Learning/Teaching Goals

Please refer to the Graduate School of Informatics and Engineering's education policy for learning/teaching goals for this department.

Specialty Programs

This department is made up of the following three programs.

Advanced Robotics Program

This program cultivates expert specialized engineers with the ability to systematically integrate knowledge from mechanical engineering, measurement and control engineering, electronics engineering and informatics engineering and who can be active on the frontline of robot mechatronics and intelligent control, microrobotics and sensory information sensing and processing.

Mechanical Systems Program

Participants in this program will be able grasp machines as systems and carry out balanced mechanical design and development. The program produces expert specialized engineers active on the frontlines of monozukuri (traditional Japanese concept of craftsmanship) based on a mastery of advanced basic technology.

Control Systems Program

This program cultivates expert specialized engineers who have wide-ranging basic skills in control, measurement and signal processing technology—which form the core of various mechanical and bio-informatics processing systems—and who have the skills necessary to synthesize and apply that technology.
