OVERVIEW

Out of an extremely wide range of Mechanical Engineering disciplines,
the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics emphasizes the following five research fields:

mechanics

Kinetic properties of vehicles and characteristics of two-phase flows

energy

Internal combustion engines, environmental energy sources and thermodynamic property on heat pumps

system engineering

Computer controls

metallic materials and machining for production

Materials science and machining technology (cutting and polishing)

mechanical designs

Computer aided design

EnResearchAn important feature of the instructional system in this department is seminar format, limited to 6-7 members per seminar group.
In addition, a unique feature of the four-year program is that the entire curriculum is composed of materials related to thesis work.
This means the relations both professionally and personally
formed between professors and students become incredibly stronger. Such research activities, where students and professors perform as a closely-knit team, make it possible for students to make the best possible use of their college years.
Leisure activities such as soccer and softball between seminar groups, and study camps, have become yearly activities.
This department prides itself on its small-group learning methodology with an emphasis on
research activities and interaction with objects (machines and related phenomena). Consequently, addition to the special education in engineering, students acquire a wider perspective and sound human values through the invaluable, close contacts and
activities with professors.
