Department of Creative Technology Engineering

The department of creative technology engineering aims to foster engineers who have essential knowledge and abilities needed in the global society, and the basic skills and ability to handle information, which are necessary in the global world of industrial manufacturing. Additionally, they are expected to be an engineer who can apply their professional ability and skills to the wide range of engineering fields, and continuously work with being eager to learn.

The one department

We integrated the conventional department of liberal arts and the multiple departments of majors into the one department. In the modern industrial manufacturing, it is important to solve problems by working with among those who are from different fields, therefore, engineers need the ability and skills related not only to their own majors, but also to the other fields. In the department of creative technology engineering, students can study both in their majors and other fields. Based the global perspective, students can also choose and learn the subjects of the 2nd foreign languages including Chinese and German, the subject of Information Processing with ICT, Career Support, and sub-specialized subjects.

The five courses

In the department of creative technology engineering, we have five courses to focus on the education in the special fields. In our course curriculum, students can choose subjects in other courses so that they could be interested in the other fields and gain their knowledge from the diversified perspectives. Students decide their own majors at the 2nd year. We flexibly set the capacities of the courses every year based on the number of students who want to study in each course.

Our curriculum is based upon the Model Core Curriculum (MCC) which is specified by the head office of KOSEN. In MCC, the mandatory subjects are decided and our curriculum is developed on the basis of the MCC so that the quality of the curriculum is proved with the educational certainty.

Introduction to each course

Liberal Arts and Sciences

Liberal Arts and Sciences refers to the fundamental subjects that are required by each course. They provide students general knowledge to develop a sense of responsibility and ethical viewpoints as well as to be an internationally-minded person. They also give the students training to become engineers who can identify and solve problems systematically with effective presentation skills and sufficient language proficiency.

Course of Mechanical Engineering

Modern mechanical engineering professionals are needed not only in the fields of traditional mechanical engineering, but also in the fields of Electronics, Mechatronics, Information, Construction and Environment Engineering. The description of work spreads extensively from research and development to production management. The Course of Mechanical Engineering educates specialists who work in a variety of fields in machinery manufacturing and management. The primary goal of the course is to provide all graduates with a solid technical foundation in design synthesis, which will enable them to solve current problems and tackle future problems.

Course of Electrical Engineering

The technology concerning electrical and electronic engineering supports the modern social system and multimedia telecommunication system. The technological innovations have been developed greatly.
In order to ensure that progress continues, the Course of Electrical Engineering, which is based on the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, aims to foster creative and practical engineers through a consistent curriculum. The Course places importance on the fundamental subjects in the lower grades. In fourth and fifth grades, the Course offers well-balanced specialized subjects concerning electrical, electronic, information, and Communication Engineering for the National Electrical Chief Engineer Qualification and the National Radio Engineer Qualification. Furthermore, the Course expects students to acquire creative and practical ability, providing opportunity for laboratory research, practical experience and graduation research.
Graduates have been engaged in all the fields of industry as well as electrical and electronic engineering. They have been highly evaluated on their technical ability in the industrial society.

Course of Information Engineering

Japan’s social infrastructure depends on highly developed information and communication technology (ICT). To be a promising engineer in such a society requires the understanding and the acquisition of not only techniques for computers and software but also the principles for handling information and the logics and ethics behind them. The three main pillars of the curriculum of the Course of Information Technology, which was built on the basis of the Department of Systems and Control Engineering, are information, networks, and multimedia. The course aims to produce creative engineers who are competent on a global stage, based on their well-balanced knowledge and techniques of both hardware and software in these fields.

Course of Civil Engineering

The educational goal of the Course of Civil Engineering is to train professional civil engineers who can contribute to developing and maintaining a safe society. Our study program is based on fundamental civil engineering subjects related to investigation, design, construction, and management. It also includes a wide range of subjects such as city planning, environmental biology, as well as environmental engineering. We also place emphasis on the balance between environmental preservation and civil engineering. In addition, a part of knowledge concerning the architectural engineering can be learnt.

Course of Chemical Engineering

Modern Technology requires us to analyze matter at the molecular and atomic levels by applying knowledge of chemistry and, on the basis of such analyses, discover and create materials for future generations.
Course of Chemical Engineering provides students with a wide range of knowledge of and techniques for materials and chemical engineering covering both inorganic and organic chemistries. Through practical experiments and seminars, our future engineers will lead such fields as the development of new materials and chemical plants and the manufacturing of chemicals.
