Mechanical Systems

Education Goals

The Education Program of Mechanical Systems aims to train students to become professionals who have advanced, specialized abilities and are capable of understanding mechanical systems under various environments from a comprehensive viewpoint that accounts for such factors as an increasingly complex society, the environment, and energy. To this end, through educational research focused on intelligent production systems, namely, knowledge and technologies relating to the production process (signal measurement processing and system control using computer technology), students will develop advanced expertise, an awareness of issues, and the ability to solve these issues.

Education Objectives

In order to achieve these educational goals, we will educate students according to the educational objectives listed below.

  1. By putting into practice a six-year program of consistent education from undergraduate education through a master’s program, students will acquire an extensive knowledge of general mechanical systems that mainly focuses on intelligent production systems, namely, the production process.
  2. We will train students to develop their presentation skills and communication skills.
  3. By providing students with thorough guidance through the master’s thesis writing process, we will help them to gain the ability to think and solve problems on their own.

What We Offer

We have eleven laboratories: Material Reliability Engineering, Advanced Molding Systems, Welding and Binding Visualization, Ultra High Pressure Impact and Super Gravity, Space Impact Engineering, Creative Engineering, Measurement Engineering, Intelligent Dynamical Systems, Intelligent Control, and Robotics.
We will conduct comprehensive educational research on the behavior of materials in extreme environments to which high temperature, high pressure, or impacts are applied and on the various phenomena related to these behaviors.
Specifically, we will cover such topics as shock wave generation and control, process tribology, high precision molding, and local large distortions.
We will also conduct systematic and comprehensive education and research from the construction of fundamental theories for measuring physical quantities to their limits, extracting information by signal processing, and mathematically analyzing and optimally controlling systems to the implementation of advanced intelligent mechanical systems making full use of state-of-the-art techniques using machinery, electronics, and computers.
