Department of Mechanical Engineering and Intelligent Systems

This academic discipline serves as the foundation for transportation devices, electric appliances, space communication devices, information devices, robots, and other intelligent mechatronics and the highly computerized mechanical systems that serve as the base of the systems for producing them. The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Intelligent Systems trains students to become pioneers in the development, design, and manufacturing of intelligent mechatronics.

Department Characteristics

The goal of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Intelligent Systems is to train students to become pioneers of development, design, and manufacturing in the constantly evolving field of intelligent mechatronics. Through their first and second year, students master the fundamentals of the common engineering subjects (including mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, and information engineering) that will serve as the foundation for their further studies.

Learning/Teaching Goals

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

Specialty Programs

In their third year, students are divided into three programs: the Advanced Robotics Program, the Mechanical Systems Program, and the Control Systems Program. In these programs, students use their comprehensive, interdisciplinary understanding of common engineering subjects, apply their solid fundamental skills to a wide range of applications, and develop the specialized skills necessary to analyze and design new mechanical systems. Through this process, students develop the comprehensive skills required of manufacturing engineers.

Advanced Robotics Program

Students learn about creating intelligent robots that can coexist with humans. Topics include the mechanical and intelligent control of robots, interfaces for controlling machines with the brain, micro robot factories, sensory information sensing and processing, and virtual reality.

Mechanical Systems Program

Students learn how to create cutting-edge fundamental technology for the design and development of mechanical systems. Topics include computer-assisted mechanical design, the development of creative processing methods, the physics of material strength and destruction, fluid mathematics and control, computational mechanics, and numerical simulation.

Control Systems Program

Students learn how to create cutting-edge systems that are intelligent and human-friendly. Studies are centered around control, measurement, and signal processing and include topics such as the control of automobiles and aerospace equipment, the construction of advanced radar systems, and biological information processing to accommodate human conditions.

List of Instructors

The instructors are the instructors in the Faculty of Informatics and Engineering. Please refer to the list of instructors for the Faculty of Informatics and Engineering.
