The Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering takes its foundation on education in advanced mechanical systems engineering focused on ensuring safe and comfortable urban life and on realizing the sustainability of the global environment and of human society. The department aims to cultivate technical experts and researchers who are capable of demonstrating creativity and application development ability in interdisciplinary fields and emerging new fields. The department covers the following three research and teaching areas:
- Mechanical Innovation
Teaching covers concepts and theory relating to functional materials and processing, as well as fundamental measurement technologies, together with basic methodology that links the two core areas of Intelligent Mechanical Systems and Biomechanical Engineering, before going on to cover existing specialist fields.
- Intelligent Mechanical Systems
To realize the vision of building a “safe, secure, sustainable society,” teaching covers areas relating to Machine Control and Intelligent Systems, as well as Service Informatics and Robotics, before going on to cover existing specialist fields.
- Biomechanical Engineering
To realize the vision of providing “high-level healthcare and effective medical support for citizens,” teaching covers areas relating to Biomedical Engineering and Biomechanics as well as Ergonomics and Assistive Technology, before going on to cover existing specialist fields.
