A faculty of Science and Technology that Serves People and the Environment– Integrated education in science and technology

This program offers integrated education in science and technology by bringing together the inquiry of science, the pragmatism of engineering, and the purposes of caring for people and the environment. To this end we have reduced the divide among the three new departments as much as possible to foster the ability to deal with the wild pace of change in science and technology and the diverse problems of society. We are providing interdisciplinary technical training with an awareness of the social significance of scholarship and science.

Department of Materials and Life Sciences
In this department we offer a comprehensive and integrated study of physics, chemistry, biology, and related disciplines to reach new outlooks on materials and life harmonized with the global environment.
New technologies that transcend the boundaries of disciplines such as mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and information are emerging one after another. In such an age, the ability to achieve unprecedented approaches based on cross-disciplinary knowledge through the fusion of science and engineering is required so as to maximize the functions of goods and systems and to solve problems as they arise. The Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences explores creation—including the creation of new functions based on the new discovery of physical phenomena and their possible applications to support humans and the environment—as its foundation. Through integrated studies of science such as physics and mathematics, and engineering such as materials, electronics, energy, and mechanical systems, the department fosters talented individuals capable of achieving harmony between industrial technology and natural science.

Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Pursue the development of science and technology in harmony with the environment by examining the potential for new discoveries of physical phenomena and their applications
The department aims to investigate “Materials and Life” in nature (= Science), to create new materials, to recycle resources, and to develop new properties and functions. With the focus on specialties such as physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, and materials engineering, students learn existing disciplines through a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary approach. The program provides a specialized education that aims for cross-disciplinary knowledge through the fusion of science and engineering based on examining the fundamentals of materials. This ranges from atomic/macromolecular materials to biological phenomena, with the key themes of Substances and Nanotechnology, Harmonization between the Environment and Life, and Creation of Highly Functional Materials.

Department of Information and Communication Sciences
Deepen Our Understandings of People and Society through the Knowledge, Wisdom, and Experience of “Information”
The Department of Information and Communication Sciences cultivates the ability to comprehend both people and society based on information, the creativity to develop the knowledge and experience accumulated by humans and society, and the ability to construct an information society where every human being can live safely. While providing learning the fundamentals of science and technology, students will focus on various specialties from key themes: Human Information, Communication Information, Social Information, and Mathematical Information. Based on “cross-disciplinary knowledge,” which is a fusion of science and engineering, we provide students with specialized education that equips them with the ability to open up the future while adapting to a wide range of fields. By acquiring cross-disciplinary knowledge, students can become not only people who can apply the latest information and communication technology and develop useful systems but also internationally active scientists and engineers as well as educators who can nurture the next generation.
