The Master’s course in the Graduate School of Engineering is designed to foster researchers and professional specialists with outstanding capacities for research and development and superior levels of specialized knowledge, abilities, and technical proficiency in a practical educational environment emphasizing the fundamentals of engineering as an essential support for the future of science and technology.

The doctoral course provides guidance in fundamental, creative research aimed at responding to the new demands of contemporary society, with the goal of fostering researchers and technicians with exceptional and richly creative research and development abilities in the fields of science and technology.

Course in Mechanical Engineering

The Master’s course in Mechanical Engineering is designed to foster researchers and professional specialists with outstanding capacities for research and development and superior levels of specialized knowledge, abilities, and technical proficiency in a practical educational environment and research activities emphasizing the fundamentals of engineering as an essential support for the future of mechanical engineering.

The Doctoral course in Mechanical Engineering aims to foster researchers and technicians with exceptional and richly creative research and development abilities in the fields of mechanical engineering through fundamental, creative research guidance aimed at responding to the new demands of contemporary society.

Course in Electrical, Electronics, and Information Engineering

The Master’s course in Electrical, Electronics, and Information Engineering, in accordance with the educational and research goals of this university and of the Graduate School of Engineering, aims at fostering individuals who will be the standard-bearers in technological development that can respond proactively and practically to the demands of human society, systematically equipping them with specialized knowledge in the fields of electrical, electronic, communications, and information engineering and their hybrid disciplines that will support the sustainable development of contemporary society.

The Doctoral course, in accordance with the educational and research goals of this university and of the Graduate School of Engineering, aims at fostering standard-bearers of research, development, and scholarship who can respond proactively and practically to the demands of human society, equipping them with a systematic understanding of advanced specialized and academic knowledge in the fields of electrical, electronic, communications, and information engineering and their hybrid disciplines that will support the sustainable development of contemporary society.

Course in Applied Chemistry

The Master’s course in Applied Chemistry is designed to foster self-directed researchers and technicians who possess the advanced specialized knowledge and research and development skills to enrich our daily lives with the creation of innovative functional materials, and contribute to the conservation of the global environment and the resolution of the energy problem.

The Doctoral course is intended to build on the abilities demonstrated in the Master’s course to foster researchers with the creative capacities to pioneer new fields of development.

Course in Industrial Engineering and Management

The Master’s course in Industrial Engineering and Management aims at broad interdisciplinary academic research unconstrained by traditional divisions between the sciences and humanities. It is designed to foster practical systems technicians capable of problem-solving based on scientific techniques and methods, by developing the capacity to adopt a systems approach to the identification, analysis, resolution, and evaluation of problems, equipping students with the fundamental skills and broad academic knowledge enabling them to function independently as technicians in fields related to industrial engineering and information systems.

In the Doctoral course, after students have been equipped with the basic skills and academic knowledge necessary to conduct independent research, the goal is to foster researchers, educators, and advanced technical specialists who can play a leading role in promoting research and development with broad social value, based on the most advanced systems technology and optimization technology.

Course in Architecture and Building Engineering

The Master’s course in Architecture and Building Engineering is designed to foster technicians and specialists who can immediately engage problems demanding the most advanced knowledge and individuals who can achieve “the purpose of architecture,” which is creating sustainable spaces, forms, and environments that are user-friendly, safe, pleasant, and emotionally resonant for a diversity of human endeavors and uses, by balancing a variety of functions, technologies, and aesthetics and aiming at their optimal comprehensive integration.

The Doctoral course is designed to foster researchers and advanced specialists capable of achieving the highest level of “the purpose of architecture,” which is creating sustainable spaces, forms, and environments that are user-friendly, safe, pleasant, and emotionally resonant for a diversity of human endeavors and uses, by balancing a variety of functions, technologies, and aesthetics and aiming at their optimal comprehensive integration.
