Precision Machinery Engineering

This Department was founded in 1961 to produce mechanical engineers who also have a foundation in electrical and electronic engineering. Since then, information technology has made dramatic progress and continues to develop at an increasing pace, resulting in the creation of advanced electromechanical engineering fields such as robotics and micro-electro-mechanical systems.

The goal of our academic program in Electro- Mechanical Engineering is to provide students with a balance of electronics and mechanical engineering that enables them to engage in a wide variety of newly developing engineering, while also benefiting society and the environment. Our program at the undergraduate level prepares students for entry-level work as electro-mechanical engineers or for further graduate study in engineering. Academic course work and projects are designed to provide students with the knowledge of electronics, mechanics, instrumentation and control systems engineering and the capability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, providing leadership and technical expertise. Corresponding to recent developments, fundamentals of communication technology are also included in the curriculum.

For the design of intelligent machines, it is most important to have knowledge of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and information engineering. The curriculum of Precision Machinery Engineering provides students those fundamentals and other various engineering practices with fundamental robots starting from their first year.
These practices are quite useful for robotic and electro-mechanical engineers to acquire a basic understanding of engineering.

In order to nurture robotic and electro-mechanical engineers who can create innovative technology in various engineering fields, the curriculum also provides the fundamentals of instrumentation devices and systems, automatic control systems, and ergonomics. Additionally, students must engage in design, manufacturing and/or development of intelligent machines in the seminar or in their graduation thesis.

The curriculum is organized for advanced students to learn key technologies such as control theory, robotics, optics, telecommunications, ergonomics, and biomechanics. This enables students not only to understand fundamental principles of mathematics and physics, but also to cultivate their engineering abilities to analyze, model, integrate, and realize electro-mechanical systems.
