Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering seeks to apply analytical approaches and techniques to explain the mechanisms of a wide range of complex natural phenomena, providing a comprehensive understanding required for mechanical design and aerospace development. The new, English-based Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering course enables students to gain specialized knowledge regarding Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, in addition to fundamental understanding of engineering in general, and to develop a global mindset for understanding international cultural values and ethics. Students learn basic engineering subjects for creating machines such as ultra-super precision instruments that work on micro and nano scales, robots with artificial intelligence, biotechnology devices and aerospace vehicles, as well as subjects on hydrogen energy and other advanced engineering topics.

Liberal Arts Subjects and Basic Sciences

For the first year and a half, students in the international undergraduate programs study various liberal arts subjects and basic sciences. This segment of the programs aims not only to equip students with in-depth liberal arts knowledge and to help them deepen their understanding of various disciplines, but also to broaden their range of interests, and to enable them to continue learning independently.
