Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Course Outline

M.Sc. Program

Aims of Academic Activities
Electrical engineering is an academic field that forms the foundation of the electrical energy and electronic information transmission essential to modern society, and it is characterized by extraordinary speed in technical innovation. In this course, students carry out wide-ranging research that covers related academic fields while focusing on the fields of electrical energy, devices, and communication. The master's program first teaches basic theory from the perspective of the advanced research being carried out by faculty members and, as well as cultivating the ability to apply this basic theory, it also teaches application theory that can be adapted to real technology.
The aim of this education is not only for students to acquire an advanced learning based on the international and original research activities of the course faculty members, but also to improve the "practical, theoretical and experimental abilities that will enable them to develop and verify theories in new areas," as required in the field of electrical engineering where the area of application is wide and change is intense. Students formulate their own objectives and plans, execute their research accordingly, and compile the results into a master's thesis. In this way, the program fosters engineers and researchers with the ability to conduct exploratory research or practically-applicable research that can contribute to society.
Specific Objectives for Development of Talented Individuals
The master's program aims to develop engineers and researchers with the following abilities who are able to pursue careers at the forefront of the real world:

(1)
A thorough understanding of electromagnetics, electrical circuitry, and other fundamental disciplines in electrical engineering, and the ability to apply these basic theories in new technological development and problem solving.

(2)
Practical, theoretical, and experimental abilities that enable them to link and develop/verify basic theory and application theory.

(3)
The ability to discover problems in existing technology, as well as ability in applied technology in order to solve these problems with constraints.

(4)
The ability to immediately cope with work as a member of a project team involved in research and development, etc.

(5)
The ability to make proposals and carry out planning of new technological development projects, as well as the ability to lead a project team and the necessary communication skills to move plans forward.

(6)
The ability to carry out original research.

Doctoral Program

Aims of Academic Activities
Electrical engineering is a discipline that contributes greatly to modern society, from production activities to everyday life, and the technologies that are developed spread and are applied across the globe in extremely short periods of time. The development of innovative electrical engineering technologies is necessary to create a truly prosperous society that is in harmony with the environment.
In this course, students carry out wide-ranging, original research that focuses on the fields of electrical energy, devices, and communication. The aim of the doctoral program is for students to make use of the theory and technical skills that they have acquired so far to develop the ability to implement internationally-recognized, original research based on their own course, direction or philosophy. Through the requirement to write a doctoral dissertation, the program nurtures researchers and engineers who, as well as having practical problem-solving ability, are able to conduct original and advanced research and development. The research planning methods developed here are universal, even in the intensely-changing field of electrical engineering, and the students develop flexible research capabilities that enable them to take on challenges even in new fields that are beyond the boundaries of their specialized field.
Specific Objectives for Development of Talented Individuals
The doctoral program aims to develop engineers and researchers with the following abilities who have their own philosophies (value judgment criteria and convictions), possess advanced and creative learning, and are capable of fulfilling leadership roles:

(1)
The ability to discover problems in existing technology and the ability to propose original solutions.

(2)
The ability to approach the development of cutting-edge technology from diverse perspectives.

(3)
The ability to plan research with an original approach and the ability to execute original research as an individual.

(4)
Advanced theoretical and experimental abilities that enable one to develop and verify theories in practical ways.

(5)
Technological skills that can contribute to the development of international society through development of science and technology.

(6)
The ability to apply technology with a flexible approach that can respond quickly to changes in the technical environment and the needs of society and industry.

(7)
The ability to take on a leadership role in academic societies and industrial activities at home and abroad.
