Educational Philosophy and Aims

In line with the philosophy of the School of Engineering, "Based in Nagasaki, a city echoing the heartbeat of Asia, the School seeks to contribute to the sustainable development of society by acquiring intelligence, spirit, strong understanding of science and technology to shape the future.", we cultivate new talent through strong engineering ethics, discovering novel issues, and encouraging the ability to pursue ideas as well as communicate effectively - all of which are required as engineers. This is done through six specialized educational programs.

Mechanical Engineering

The goals of this Mechanical Engineering Program are the implementation of education and research for creation with consideration of the potential role of machines in contemporary society. By focusing not just on the foundation of Mechanical Engineering but also taking into account "Machines for Human Life" and "Machines for the Environment", we hope to provide new ways of thinking, new ways of teaching, and new research regarding how machines can help society. In this program, we have following aims.

  1. Our program fosters the ability to act and learn independently in a proactive manner.
  2. Acquiring basic engineering knowledge, cultivating talent, and providing applicable skills.
  3. With the foundations provided by this program, we foster engineers who can create novel machines that will be used in the future.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This program consists of the three academic fields of electrical engineering, electronic engineering and information and communication engineering, each of which supports a future based on advanced science and a technological life utilizing both hardware and software. We aim to educate engineers and researchers with talents applicable to our rapidly developing technology-based society.

Computer and Information Science

The main theme of the Computer and Information Science Program is to "Create information systems for the next generation to develop the future of computer and human society". We aim to educate students who can contribute to the welfare of society in the various areas of information technology.

  1. We educate students to learn the basics of engineering, information science and technical English, as fundamental subjects for engineers of information technology.
  2. We combine lectures and exercises systematically, and train students to easily acquire skills in programming.
  3. In four years, we educate students with core skills in hardware, software, algorithms, higher information processing, and constructing computer networks.

Structural Engineering

This program fosters engineers who can contribute to a wide range of manufacturing, with basic knowledge of structural design of buildings, bridges, cars, plants, ships, airplanes and space-structures, to be able to build them by acquiring fundamental ability of theory, design and construction technique to build those structures. Core principles include:

  1. To make students acquire fundamental knowledge of structural engineering such as mathematics, mechanics, computer-simulation, design drafting those required to build safely various kinds of structures in industrial society.
  2. To aid students to acquire English proficiency in order to have an international perspective.
  3. To provide a curriculum to acquire a first class qualified architect qualification.

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Our program cultivates talented individuals with technical knowledge of the design, planning, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure; who contribute to designing and/or building 'a secure and prosperous society' and 'sustainable environment' through considerations of balancing human activities with health of natural environment in both urban area and outlying regions.

Chemistry and Materials Engineering

The Chemistry and Materials Engineering program cultivates engineers who can pave the way for their future by acquiring an internationality and basic abilities for creating new, valuable chemicals, substances, and materials as well as developing environment-friendly energy conversion technologies, through attainment of both basic and specialized knowledge of the fields of engineering science (such as mathematics and physics), chemistry, bioengineering, and materials engineering. This course also fosters talents who can actively participate in advanced and interdisciplinary areas such as nanotechnology and biotechnology with a wide-ranging knowledge and strongissue-exploring and resolving ability. Acquired abilities underlie the basis of their future graduate studies to become academic researchers, research and development leaders in industry, or professional engineers.
