Features of the Degree Programs

Interdisciplinary education and research

The focus of our education and research is macro-engineering technology based on mechanics, where traditional boundaries between categories of engineering are being removed and disciplines are being integrated. We aim to foster engineers who have a broad perspective and creativity spanning conventional boundaries in the field.

Education and research by the Cooperative Graduate School

Researchers from national institutes such as the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), the Japan Aerospace eXploration Agency (JAXA), the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), and the Public Works Research Institute (PWRI) are appointed as professors and associate professors of our university and provide students with research guidance utilizing the research facilities of their institutes.

Competences of the Degree Programs

Students are able to acquire the following competences up until completion.

Achievement Level Assessment System (ALAS)

ALAS enables students to confirm their achievement status related to knowledge and abilities (generic/specific
competences) which must be acquired and improve their learning plan with their supervisors.
