Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Fostering leading electrical technicians in the 21st Century
Electrical and electronic engineering - the foundation for technology
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering covers a broad array of areas in the field, such as electricity, electronics, communication, optics, and information technology. Those research areas are making remarkable progress as infrastructure technology for all kinds of industry, ranging from energy, control, communication, information processing, semiconductors, electronics, computer software, communication systems and so on. Our curriculum allows students to study effectively from basic knowledge of a wide spectrum of electrical and electronic engineering to advanced technology, and help them to become engineers who know a lot about the field and can apply their knowledge to different situations.
Introduction of the course system ensures better education for students
Our curriculum is arranged in a way that allows students to take the next step into a specialty area of study that they are interested in, after thorough understanding of basic subjects. Furthermore, from the second year on, they are allowed to choose one of two courses, "the Electrical and Electronics Course" , "the Information and Communication Course" or "Conprehension Electrical and Communication Systems" In this way, they can study their specialty areas more systematically and efficiently. Besides these features, every member of the teaching staff in our department is required to be a student advisor and pay individual attention to students from their first year onward. In this way, we believe we can achieve tailored education. To ensure that each student acquires essential knowledge in the field, we are trying various ideas in our curriculum. For example, some classes are arranged in a proficiency-dependent manner. Also, some classes are repeated twice a year (once in the first semester and again in the second semester). Experiments and seminars are conducted in small classes with plenty of time allotted to them so that students can take their time in understanding theories and learning practical techniques. We are especially careful to notice if the first year students are really interested in whatever activities they are involved in and are actually having fun with them.
