Creating “new values” with cutting-edge science and technology
Design & Information
- Design Engineering
- Production Engineering
- Materials Engineering
Today, mechanical engineering covers a wide range of applications in the mega, human, micro, and nano scales, including satellites, automobiles, information equipment, MEMS/NEMS, and molecular structure control. New functions can be added to mechanical systems through the use of new materials. It is also important to use aesthetics and sensibility as value criteria for mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering involves research and development in design, production, processing, and materials, using cutting-edge science and technology to address a wide range of complex and unknown problems. The aim is to contribute to society and industry by planning and creating “things” and “matters” from a comprehensive viewpoint of technology, people, and society, and by creating value.
The formation of a rich human environment created by “energy transformation“
- Thermal Engineering
- Fluids Engineering
Aiming to further improve energy conversion efficiency, we are conducting research to elucidate and control various flow phenomena from “earth scale” to “molecular scale” based on advanced experimental measurements and high-precision numerical analysis, as well as heat and mass transfer phenomena that occur therein, and to understand various physical phenomena that appear in energy systems with low environmental impact and high added value. Based on the knowledge of thermo-fluid and energy, we are also engaged in the creation of new nano/micro devices, and are conducting cutting-edge research and development with the aim of contributing to the formation of an affluent society.
“Creation of new machines”: aiming at cutting-edge research in a wide range of fields
- Control Engineering
Our research interests cover a wide range of fields from automobiles, railroads, robots, energy systems, and living organisms. The area of Machine Dynamics and Information Control uses mechanical mechanics and control engineering as its basic knowledge to develop modeling and sensing technologies to understand the physical phenomena inherent in objects, to develop control algorithms that allow objects to operate as designed, and to systemize the system through seamless integration of hardware and software. In the area of ergonomics and bioengineering, we are building a new field of bioengineering by applying mechanical engineering and creating new machines by applying bioengineering, in other words, integrating the two fields and exploring new directions. We aim to create new machines through the understanding of various physical and biological phenomena on the micro to nano scale, and we create unprecedented “new value” through cutting-edge research in collaboration with medical engineering, such as the development of new bio-measurement and diagnosis technologies using mechanical engineering knowledge and the promotion of regenerative medicine research to reconstruct and treat tissues by controlling individual cells.
