Engineering Sciences and Design
Graduate Major

Solve various problems in society
through engineering design

Our goal is to produce individuals with engineering design abilities — the abilities to solve the various problems that confront humankind and to contribute to the creation of new technologies, values, and concepts sought by society. Along with this, these individuals will be cultivated to possess comprehensive understanding of science and technology and to work persistently to push back existing constraints.

Objectives

Becoming an innovator who contributes
to society by merging technology
with value creation

In the Master's Program, we cultivate individuals who have the basic abilities necessary to identify and formulate problems in complex situations in the real world and have the knowledge and skills necessary to express, criticize, and frame thoughts and ideas related to engineering design.
In the Doctoral Program, we cultivate individuals who can create new values for society through research and application of engineering design, can visualize the processes involved to introduce them, and can reform existing set of values for a better society.
