Faculty of Systems Engineering

The Faculty of Systems Engineering uses combinations of two majors to produce graduates with competency in a variety of fields. The combination of a student’s primary major and a second major personally selected by the student is known as a course. Thus, the course is automatically determined by the combination of majors. One may think of the student’s affiliation as being the primary major, while the course refers to the combination of studies.





The mechatronics major provides a curriculum in the fields of mechanics, electronics, and control engineering. Students study the professional technologies needed for the efficient design and safe operation of mechatronics devices - such as robots and automobiles. Offering high performance and intelligent features, mechatronics technologies create a user friendly environment.
Electronic Measurement With the aim of training students capable of creating sensing and signal processing systems useful in present-day human lifestyles and industries, the Electronic Measurement Measure performs education and research relating to electrical and electronic engineering, applied optics, and measurement devices and systems.
Applied Physics The Applied Physics major offers a fundamental background to the fields of materials science, solid state physics, and electronic engineering. It is intended to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to explore the nanoscale world of materials, and to meet the needs for the development of novel materials and devices.
Chemistry The Chemistry major provides opportunities to learn the fundamental laws of chemistry and a basic understanding of materials, and allows students to develop the specialized ability to comprehend chemical phenomena, interactions at an atomic level, and the design of new functional materials.
Intelligent Informatics This major involves education and research regarding intelligent information systems. The subjects include artificial intelligence, robotics, computer vision, computer graphics and augmented reality.
Network Informatics This major involves education and research on building intelligent information networks. The subjects include mobile networks, Web-based systems, software engineering and big data analysis.
Environmental Science The Environmental Science major aspires to train students to protect the environment, to improve it, and to pass it on to future generations. Students in this major acquire the knowledge and skills needed to contribute to achieving a sustainable society, including preventing environmental destruction, protecting lives and livelihoods from natural disasters, mitigating and adapting to global warming, and creating beautiful landscape.
Environmental Design The Environmental Design major aims to train students to be capable of substantively improving man’s relationship with nature. This major encompasses all aspects of the environment, from the natural world to living spaces. Students learn techniques for harmonious coexistence with nature including regeneration of the natural environment, disaster prevention, greenification, and natural energy sources as well as planning technologies such as landscape preservation, urban planning, and architectural design.
Media Design The Media Design major aspires to train students knowledgeable in both media design and information. Students learn aspects of information technology such as sound and visual design, ergonomic interface design, and the methods of design production and planning that serve as their foundation.
Socio-Informatics In the Socio-Informatics major, students acquire the skills needed to plan and design information systems to ensure bountiful lives and societies. Students learn societal frameworks undergirded by information technology, software development, and the high-level communication skills needed to explore possibilities for new information systems.




The Robotics Course curriculum combines subjects offered by the Mechatronics and Electronic Measurement Majors. The Course aims to educate students in developing their skills for creating mechatronics and electronic products such as robots and sensing systems. Studies in this course provide hybrid skills required in all fields of industry relying on cutting-edge hardware technologies.
