The Department’s emphasis is on fundamental mechanical subjects, drafting skills, and laboratory work. In view of the recent trend toward the employment of automation and manufacturing robots, the curriculum also focuses on electrical and electronic engineering, automatic controls, and computerized systems and networks.
Manufacturing is a wide field comprised of several different specializations, such as machinery, electricity, chemistry, and art/design, as exemplified in automobile manufacturing. Therefore, the department curriculum consists of the following three areas:
1. Fundamentals of Manufacturing: Our Department attaches great importance to mathematics, physics and mechanics to provide students the ability to solve various problems independently.
The curriculum is composed of three levels - Introduction, Basic and Specialty - to enable students to improve capabilities step-by-step.
2. Practical Education for Manufacturing: The practical education is divided into "experience" and "problem-solving". Practical mechanical engineering is offered in the freshman year, followed by electrical engineering laboratory in the junior year, for "experience". Students are expected to learn the relation between Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering through these courses. For "problem-solving", there are machine design and CAD/CAM.
3. Computer Skills for Manufacturing: A computer is one of requisite tools for engineers. Students will gradually acquire the necessary skills by studying computer programming and computer applications.
