Introduction

Producing Engineers Who Can Use Diverse Electronic Technologies to Contribute to Society

Dramatic advancements in electronics have led to its application in a multitude of fields, including ubiquitous computing, advanced high-speed communication networks, optical/laser applications, and next-generation energy development. Electronics is at the heart of technological development around the world; it is a fundamental technology that is integral to all types of industry. The Department of Electric and Electronic Engineering's educational philosophy entails developing students into engineers who can utilize wide-ranging expertise and tackle various issues in a motivated and consistent manner. Our goal is human resources development that can make a positive contribution to society.

Meeting the Needs for Diverse Learning

In this department, students can satisfy their need for diverse learning across a wide range of fields, from electronics and information/telecommunications to energy and the environment. Students begin by acquiring the basic knowledge common to these various fields. Then, as they progress through the academic year, they delve deeper into their specialized area. Experiments and training are closely linked to lectures, so students are able to experience first-hand what they learn about in class. This practically oriented curriculum deepens students' understanding through a systematic approach to education that takes them from the basics to the cutting edge of technology.

Curriculum

Across a broad swathe of different industries, there is strong demand for a high level of electronics expertise in areas such as optical communications and medical laser technology. One outstanding feature of this department is that it covers a wide diversity of research areas, including hardware (electronic materials, semiconductors, and control systems), information and telecommunications, and future-oriented energy engineering (including nuclear energy). Our goal is to develop students into engineers who can build on a foundation in electrical and electronic engineering to create next-generation technologies in a variety of fields.

Electronics and Information/Communication Course

Pursuing a Ubiquitous Network Society via the Latest Advances in Electronics, IT, and Communications

Making it possible for people to connect to next-generation high-speed communications networks and computers requires researchers and engineers who are well versed in both hardware and software. This JABEE*-certified course focuses on the hardware side. Students can, for example, study various aspects of microcomputers—the computers that control electronic equipment—including how they work and how to control them. They can also learn encoding and transmission methods used in data communication. Through experiments and training, students become engineers who possess the essential basic skills of electrical and electronic engineering as well as the ability to apply what they have learned.
