Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Undergraduate Major

Specialized education built on a broad foundation
— a solid footing for researchers and engineers

The curriculum is designed to induce systematic learning in a broad range of subjects. Building on the basic science courses taken in the first year, students progress to 200- and 300-level courses that are relevant to their major. Through compulsory courses, such as engineering mathematics, electromagnetics, and electrical circuits, students study the essential subjects of electrical and electronic engineering, and through electives in electromagnetic waves and communications, electric power, circuits, devices and material properties, students get to broaden their knowledge of the discipline.

Additionally, there are compulsory laboratory courses that deepen the students' understanding of technology and develop their ability to put their knowledge into practice. The proceeding Independent Research Project not only reinforces these understanding and applied skills, but also develops the students' creative skills.

  1. 1st Year

    100-Level Courses

    Students in their first year of undergraduate studies receive basic education that centers on Institute-wide compulsory courses regardless of their discipline. The 100-level courses are designed to teach common, basic skills that are required of science and technology students. The aims of these courses are to provide knowledge and cultivate versatile intellect necessary for studying at the Institute.

  2. 2nd Year
    3rd Year

    200-Level and 300-Level Courses

    Students who complete their 100-level courses advance to study their undergraduate major. Courses at the 200- and 300-levels specific to the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Major are taken in accordance with the curriculum.

    • Electromagnetics Courses
      Students study electromagnetic fields and waves that are fundamental to the discipline.
    • Mathematics Courses
      Students study topics, such as analysis, algorithms, and statistics, which are essential to the understanding of the discipline.
    • Electromagnetic Waves and Communications Courses
      Students learn the basics of specialized areas of electromagnetic waves and communications. The courses cover the breadth of research areas that use waves.
    • Electric Power Courses
      Courses cover topics necessary to understand electric power and plasma, power electronics, and system control.
    • Circuitry Courses
      A systematic study of research into electrical and electronic circuits, signal processing, and measurements is made through the courses.
    • Materials and Devices Courses
      Students learn the basics necessary to conduct research into electronic materials and devices made from these materials.
    • Laboratory Courses
      Students gain training in conducting experiments and presenting their findings. The courses allow students to obtain a deeper understanding of topics that were covered in lectures and acquire practical, applied skills.
  3. 4th Year

    200-Level and 300-Level Courses

    At the final stage of the 300 level is the Independent Research Project (equivalent to the Undergraduate Thesis Research that was in place previously). The project is intended to serve as a capstone for students to consolidate and reinforce all of the skills acquired in their Electrical and Electronic Engineering Major. Furthermore, they may choose to enroll in the Advanced Independent Research Project. The purpose of this course is to enhance the students' interest in scientific and technological research that began with the Independent Research Project. The course provides students with the opportunity to actively engage in their interests by taking part in science- and technology-related activities.

  4. Entrance Examination

    Students need to pass an entrance exam to advance from a bachelor's to a master's program. To advance from a master's to a doctoral program, students must pass an advancement assessment.

  5. Graduate Majors
    Master's Degree Program
    Doctoral Degree Program

    400-Level, 500-Level, and 600-Level Courses

    Students who complete the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Undergraduate Major may continue to study the same discipline in more depth by taking the Electrical and Electronic Graduate Major. There are also closely related interdisciplinary graduate majors that students may advance to, which are the Energy Science and Informatics, Human Centered Science and Biomedical Engineering, and Nuclear Engineering Graduate Majors.
