Educational and Research Objectives

With production science and technology and human assistive technology as the core, one of the major educational and research objectives in this course is to foster researchers and highly specialized engineers having the ability to create new functional systems based on social demands and using physical principles and practical engineering methods, such as human-friendly production machine systems and human assistive machine systems with new functions. These human resources are expected to lead the world in each technological field by effectively utilizing the ability. Production science is a cornerstone of engineering. Particularly in a technology-based country like Japan, the role of production science is significant. The academic fields covered by production science are extensive and diverse. These fields are also expected to have the flexibility to respond to the rapid development of science and technology, informatization, internationalization, and social demands. They are also expected to
