Educational Program

We offer those who have finished compulsory education five-year Regular Courses for an associate degree and those who have completed the Regular Courses additional two-year Advanced Courses aiming at a bachelor’s degree. The Regular Course modules consist of common subjects in the Faculty of Liberal Studies and specialized subjects in six differ- ent departments, i.e., Departments of Information, Communication and Electronic Engineering, Control and Information Systems Engineering, Human-Oriented Information Systems Engineering, Mechanical and Intelligent Systems Engineer- ing, Architecture and Civil Engineering and of Biological and Chemical Systems Engineering. In these Departments, link between fused and combined engineering is designed and further developed to strengthen our competence of engineering design and to enhance our educational foundations, which aim at harmonizing human community and natural environ- ment. We aim at educating an engineer with practical and creative skills competent enough to be desired across the globe.

An exemplary role model at the Associate Degree courses is as shown below.

  1. An engineer capable of communication both in Japanese and English.
  2. An engineer equipped with fundamental ICT techniques and relevant applied knowledge towards engineering.
  3. An engineer equipped with knowledge and skills of fundamental technology in relevant areas as well as those on specialized technique in the area, which make the engineer skillful enough to solve problems with methods of integrative thinking.
  4. An engineer having well-balanced characters of spirit, mind and body as well as social wellbeing and cooperative personality.
  5. An engineer with broad views and high sense of ethics upon engineering.
  6. An engineer who has intellectual curiosity, and is capable of challenging topics, subjects, tasks and problems with aggressiveness and creativity.
