Examples of classes

  • Mechanical System Design Exercise II
    (Compulsory Elective Course in the Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences)
    This course provides third-year students with an opportunity to experience and learn design and drafting methods, which are important in the field of mechanical engineering. The targets of design include the selective compliance assembly robot arm (SCARA), gear pumps, and single-cylinder gasoline engines. Students themselves perform design calculations in accordance with the mechanics of materials, mechanical dynamics, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, etc., which they have studied in their second year. On the basis of the results of design calculations, modeling is performed using a 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) system. Eventually, by creating 2D drawings from modeling data, students develop the ability to understand and describe design information necessary for production.
    • By making full use of knowledge of the mechanics of materials and thermodynamics acquired in their classes, students perform design calculations for a single-cylinder gasoline engine.
    • Modeling is performed using a 3D CAD system on the basis of the results of design calculations.
    • Whatever students do not understand will be kindly and politely explained by the TAs and the instructor.
    • Design drawing of a piston and a connecting rod for a single-cylinder gasoline engine obtained by modeling using a 3D CAD system.
  • Electric Engineering Lab. I
    (Compulsory Elective Course in the Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences)
    In this course, students will experience and learn the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering. This course is necessary to acquire a systematic understanding of electrical and electronic engineering and serves as the foundation for more advanced laboratory courses. Specific experimental topics are “measurement errors and their handling,” “circuit theorems,” “introduction to microcomputer control programming,” “electrostatic field,” “characteristics of magnetic materials and electromagnetic induction,” and “AC circuits and transient phenomena.” Through this course, students will learn how to perform experiments, handle equipment, process data, proceed with the investigation, and write reports. In addition, students will be able to deepen their understanding of the theories and laws learned in lectures by actual confirmation through experiments.
    • Students are conducting experiments on the “characteristics of magnetic materials and electromagnetic induction.”
    • Students perform experiments while receiving guidance from the instructor.
    • Wiring for measurement of electric circuits.
    • Generation of electrical signal waveform by a function generator.
