  2. Those who wish to become educators or engineers and utilize specialized knowledge in all fields of Mathematics.
Department of Physics

Physics is a discipline filled with dreams and expectations. It seeks to analyze and describe in a unified way all natural phenomena, including matter, interactivity, and space-time, through simple and orderly physical laws. We explore truth by means of theoretical constructs and experimental validation.

The Department of Physics aspires to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and skills of physics by fostering flexible, creative thinking based on deep scientific knowledge. Our graduates pursue careers not only as professional physicists but also as employees in diverse fields at corporations and government offices and as teachers. Since the mastery of physics requires exceptionally broad knowledge, we seek students who have knowledge of basic physics, mathematical and scientific skills, and the ability to think logically and communicate effectively.

Department of Information Science

The Department of Information Science is dedicated to the systematic study of Information Technology with respect to the theory, planning, and development of computerized information systems. Through such research, we train students to become engineers, educators, and researchers able to play a formative role in the information society.

Our department seeks students who have a keen interest in IT and who are motivated to develop software and construct information systems. Such students must also possess the broadly based academic preparation necessary to acquire advanced skills and training related to the rapidly advancing field of IT.

Department of Chemistry and Applied Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry and Applied Chemistry strives to carry out basic research and seeks to develop new materials such as fine ceramics, functional polymeric materials, and advanced materials such as electronics or bio-based products through structural design at the atomic, molecular or crystal lattice level. At the same time, we strive to develop earth-friendly materials and problem-solving technologies including resource recycling and environmental cleanup. We welcome students who possess intellectual curiosity and a desire to understand the organizing principles of daily life and who have an interest in creating new uniquely functional materials. We seek students who excel at biology, physics, mathematics, and chemistry, and who also are academically proficient in Japanese, social studies, and English.

Department of Mechanical Engineering

Machine technology is a highly diversified field that includes transport machinery, such as aircraft, ships, trains, and automobiles; power-driven machinery, such as power plants; and industrial machinery, such as machine tools, industrial robots, rockets, artificial satellites, and even home appliances and information-communication devices. The future of machine technology lies not only in the pursuit of convenience and efficiency but also in the development of human-robot cooperation, safety, environmental harmony, resources, and energy.

The educational goal of the Department of Mechanical Engineering curriculum is to prepare professionals for a variety of roles in the world. The curriculum is accredited by the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education as a technical education program for all freshmen and transfer students. We welcome students who have a basic knowledge of math and science, a heightened sense of ethics, and a fascination with “manufacturing,” a desire to create and innovate.

In their senior year, students conduct their own research for graduation in our research labs, and we encourage students to pursue advanced research in our Master’s program.

We are looking for students who have mastered the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, and chemistry in high school and who have an interest in creating new hardware technologies or software programs related to electronics and information communication. We also welcome students interested in energy issues and environmental problems.

Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture

Cities need transportation, water, buildings, a functional infrastructure, improved facilities, and a means of insuring safety; they also need, however, to function in harmony with the natural environment and local history. In recent years, city design has grown increasingly important. Formative and spatial design requires an aesthetic sensibility that takes into account human feelings and attitudes toward nature. The ability to communicate is, obviously, an essential requirement. The Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture consists of two courses: “Environment and Infrastructure Course” and “Architecture and Urban Design Course,” preparing professionals with highly technical knowledge for a variety of roles. The distinguishing feature of our educational principle is that students are free to choose courses from the specialized subjects we offer. Since students must accept responsibility for their choices, they need to exhibit a spirit of challenge and a strong will to succeed.
