Characteristics of School

Mechanical engineering is the driving force behind technological innovation.

In today’s sophisticated, constantly advancing industrial society, the importance of mechanical engineering as the driving force for technological innovation is ever-increasing. Studies at the School of Mechanical Engineering cover a wide range of subjects, from general mechanical engineering as a foundation for industrial technology, to environment-friendly mechanical technologies, and are oriented towards the realization of sustainable development.

We are shifting towards mechanical engineering that oriented towards the sustainable consumption of materials and energy.

We are faced with the great challenge of developing a society that balances sustainable economic growth with environmental protection. The School of Mechanical Engineering prepares students for a career as a mechanical engineer or as a researcher who will be successful in the wide-ranging field of industry, and who will fulfill the social responsibilities of a practitioner of manufacturing engineering while seeking harmony among technology, the environment and society.
