About this department
Electricity is being used in all areas of highly-sophisticated information societies, such as mobile phones, computer systems, home appliances, motor vehicles, aircraft, office equipment, and manufacturing equipment. The use of electricity varies with the purpose of use. For example, electricity is used as control signals, radio waves that transmit information, light sources, and energy sources.The course of Electrical and Electronic Engineering provides education and research on state-of-the-art specialized fields of advanced technologies used in electricity, electronic devices, semiconductor lasers, electric energy, robots, electric cars, clean energy, automatic control, communication systems, medical electronic equipment, biological information processing, electronics, computer systems, and software development.
The Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course plays a central role in the recent innovation of electricity-related science and technology. For the purpose of efficiently learning a wide range of electrical and electronic disciplines, this course consists of four major education and research groups: Materials Science and Device, Electric Energy Engineering, Communications and Controls, and Intelligent Networks and Computer Sciences. In the 1st year of the course, the students study the basic subjects required for any specialist fields. In the 2nd and 3rd years, applied subjects in various electrical and electronic fields are gradually introduced, providing an educational curriculum that enables the students to acquire the knowledge in electrical and electronic science engineering. This allows the students who have not yet decided on a specialization subject at the time of enrollment to find a specialist field of study while progressing through their learnings.
