Hands-on Skills (Monotsukuri) Supporting ICT and a Sustainable Society

Materials science and engineering embody the scientific approach to creating and researching materials that support our sustainable society. It involves information and communication technology and social infrastructure considering the environment. The reason that computers and cellular phones have become more convenient is due to the significant contribution of materials engineering to the advances made in semiconductors. Materials science and engineering is an important key to developing near-future vehicles, such as eco-cars and next generation aircraft. The department offers the students a curriculum that includes environmental studies, nanotechnology, and computational materials science. The graduates of the department are playing important roles as materials technical experts and leaders in hands-on technology (Monotuskuri).
