The various equipment and infrastructures that support our lives, as well as living things including us are composed of various elements. However, these elements function and create value as an integrative system. In the Department of Systems and Control Engineering, we foster the basic ability necessary to objectively analyze everything — concrete and abstract — in nature and society as a system and to create new systems of value based on this knowledge. Students gain scholastic abilities in measurement, control, design, and system science as well as in areas such as machines, electricity, and information. Furthermore, students gain an advanced and integrative understanding of these areas through exercises. Through this education, we develop our students to become creative and innovative individuals who can make beneficial contributions to society.
Science and technology in modern society have rapidly become more complex and advanced, therefore an objective perspective for considering everything from concrete to abstract as a system is essential in order for engineers and researchers to be effective in their jobs. In the Department of Systems and Control Engineering, there are many opportunities for students to come face to face with various systems including measurement control theory and mechatronics, computer vision, internal-combustion engines, and biological systems.
