Educational and Research Objectives
Mechanical Engineering and Science is a central part of the engineering, and it is expected to evolve along with other engineering fields through organic combination. For this reason, there is a need to build the system for enhanced productivity and improved efficiency and create a rich social infrastructure in which people and robots coexist. One of the main educational and research objectives in the Division of Mechanical Engineering and Science is to foster competent human resources who will play a central role in the research and development of science and technology that support human activities.
Mechanical science Program
The main disciplines in the Mechanical Engineering Course are materials science, production and processing science, and thermo-fluid science. In this course, the education system consists mainly of lectures in the relevant subjects (material mechanics, fracture mechanics, structural strength, material engineering, material evaluation science, material development, production engineering, processing science, processing property, precision engineering, mechanical kinematics, hydrodynamics, gas dynamics, thermodynamics, combustion engineering, thermal energy) and research guidance at each laboratory. By attending lectures in the Mechano-Robotics Course, the curriculum allows students to acquire cutting-edge knowledge about the entire division of Mechanical Engineering and Sciences. The keywords for the research fields in this course include elasticity, fracture mechanics, fatigue, material information engineering, intelligent material, precision polishing, ultraprecision cutting, laser processing, mechanical elements, tribology, detonation waves, supersonic combustion, PIV (particle image velocimetry), CFD (computational fluid dynamics), microflow, medical engineering, and bio-mimicry.
