1. Why Mechanical Engineering?

The advances in science and technology have made life more convenient and better. However, issues such as global warming and living costs in our communities are becoming expensive and complex to manage. More so, with the start of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), technologies such as IoT, big data, AI, and robots are expected to achieve both economic development and social stability. With this paradigm shift, there are addition demands of mechanical engineers in supporting these new technologies.

2. Overview

2-1. Scope and what you will study
Basic subjects of mechanical engineering are called as “three dynamics”, i.e. strength of materials, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. You can study these three dynamics and a lot of other subjects like kinematics of the machines, control engineering, mechanical design and etc., as classroom lectures. Furthermore, you will have exercises and experiments based on these study subjects. Moreover, drawing, CAD drafting and practical training on machine will be useful for your education. Graduate thesis will be the most excellent chance for you to study, develop and change your knowledge as a students in this university. You can solve various engineering problems under the guidance of your professor. Join us and you will be next successful engineers. Do the best for yourself!

Our program is certified by Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE). ,See JABEE home page,

3. Postgraduate school

Our school has postgraduate courses for mechanical engineering, two years course for master degree and further three years course for doctoral degree. You can study your master degree and/or doctoral degree in order to be an expert of mechanical engineering.

4. Further information

Our Mechanical Engineering Course provides education and research in the following areas: Aerospace System, Medical System Engineering, and Environmentally Friendly System that will be necessary in the future. Our goal is to foster R&D / Engineers who have both fundamental knowledge in each specialised field and skills to integrate cross-disciplinary ideas to contribute in solving local and international problems.
4-1) Aerospace system field
Next-Generation Efficient Transportation/Mobility System ( link to each lab)
4-2) Medical system engineering field
Development of advanced medical and healthcare devices for supporting all generation's peoples living an aging society ( link to each lab)
4-3) Environmentally friendly system field
