- About [MECHANICAL A]
DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING［MECHANICAL A]
The Department of Mechanical Engineering continues to explore the creation of new technologies and values demanded by society by understanding the essence of natural phenomena and social events from the perspective of mechanical engineering.
From the Industrial Revolution to the present, mechanical engineering, which is based on the principles of "mechanics" that is the principle of objects and "design and production" that integrate knowledge and give shape to it, has revolutionized the world by realizing things that humans have imagined or even imagined, such as automobiles and aircraft for mobility, and smartphones for information and communication, It has revolutionized the world by bringing into reality things that humans have imagined or never even imagined, such as automobiles and aircraft for mobility and smartphones for information communication.
In an increasingly complex and diverse society, the Department of Mechanical Engineering provides a place where students can learn through research to develop the basic knowledge and skills in a wide range of fields and the ability to integrate them, which they will need to create new products in any field and for any object in the future.
To solve global issues such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and carbon neutrality, it is essential to explore physical phenomena consisting of matter, heat, fluid, and motion, and to maximize their use for human life and society.
It is you who will create the affluent future society in which you will live. Let's create new values with the comprehensive vision and knowledge of technology, people, society, and the environment that you have acquired in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Department of Mechanical Engineering / Department of Mechanical Engineering
Since 1879, when the Department of Mechanical Engineering was founded, the Department of Mechanical Engineering has produced many talented individuals in the field of mechanical engineering. In the postwar period of economic growth, the mechanical engineering department has been responsible for training engineers to create and support Japan's key industries, such as railroads, automobiles, shipbuilding, aircraft, heavy machinery, electrical machinery, steel, and various other plants. Since then, the fields of education and research have been changing in response to the expansion and diversification of industrial fields. For example, bioengineering, environmental engineering, and research on distributed energy systems are fields that have expanded with the needs of the times, while molecular thermal engineering and molecular dynamics are fields that have emerged as research targets have shifted from macro to micro in terms of clarifying phenomena. The scales of machinery are also diversifying, ranging from micro mechanical systems to infrastructures. In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, efforts are being made to constantly renew and adapt the curriculum to reflect developments in these research fields. The Master's Course aims to nurture engineers who can play an active role in a wide range of industries, and the Doctoral Course aims to nurture engineers who can demonstrate outstanding abilities in advanced specialized research and development. The school has a cooperative system with the Institute of Industrial Science in terms of education and research. Approximately 40 faculty members of the Graduate School of Engineering in Hongo and 15 faculty members of the Institute of Industrial Science in Komaba Campus 2 cooperate in education and research.
