Mechanical engineering plays an important role in manufacturing. Students can acquire the basic knowledge and ideas of mechanical engineering as well as skills that can be applied apply in the real world. Students mainly study mechanical dynamics, mechanics of materials, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics. Furthermore, we aim at integrated manufacturing and the development of technologies requiring even more enhanced specialization. Therefore we educate and research in three fields; aerospace, biotechnology and robotics, and system design. We foster engineers and researchers who can play an active role in industrial fields and experts who can support a variety of regional industries and contribute to recovery.

My dream is to create robots for disaster

[from Ofunato High School, Iwate Prefecture]

SATO Wataru

I chose this course because, in addition to being interested in manufacturing, I experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake. At that time, I wanted to create robots that could work instead of people. In the lab, I work on robots. I was so excited when the robot I had made from scratch moved.
Meanwhile, in my club activity, I started to play music for the first time and am playing the violin. At first, I couldn’t read scores at all but now I’m a section leader. Although this important responsibility weighs on me, I love the sense of accomplishment I get when I overcome that heavy feeling and the recital ends in a success.
