The objectives of this major are directed not only toward the research and development for the functionally organized following three courses but also to the education to incubate the pioneering engineers who are rich in vitality, originality and service, i.e. VOS in abbreviation.
Electric Energy System and Control Engineering
Activity in this research area focuses on the following topics: new energy systems, plasma applications, pulsed-power technology, electric power systems, energy conversion and control, motion control and robotics, industrial and transportation systems, home appliances, and new materials for energy systems.
Research and development for enhancing and improving functionality and performance of those systems are demanded by human society in view of reducing the global environmental load.
The energy and electric power supply systems, the hubs of the transformation and distribution of energy, are of immense importance to our sophisticated modern society. This course has advanced its performance due to the development of new material parts for electronic devices. In fact the demands of society on the electric and electronic systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated, leading to multiplying components and a deepening relation with other disciplines. In order to coincide with such demands of modern industrial society, the important themes are how to develop electric and energy systems anchoring an integrated relation with the other disciplines and also how to develop the electronic devices which may be involved in such an electric power system. The continuous target of the energy systems research field is to study and develop energy and related systems in order to support the dynamism of modern and future society.
In this course, fundamental scholastic ability and practice-minded knowledge are cultivated through education of the corresponding undergraduate course. Also, due to the close interrelationship with other two courses in this major, knowledge of system application is to be deepened.
Electronic Devices and Photonics Engineering
This research area consists of solid electronic engineering, semi-conducting material engineering, energy transforming element engineering and opto-electronics.
Electronic devices which utilize the basic properties of semi-conductors, magnetic substances, super-conductors and dielectric substances are studied with regard to their properties and functions, including production technology, with the objective of improving the properties of electronic devices and developing new electronic and opto-electronic devices with new technology.
Electronic engineering plays an important role in modern society, contributing to wide areas including domestic electronic appliances, electronic computers, control devices and electronic devices for educational and medical use. It is to be said that electronic engineering has become indispensable to every aspect of science and technology. Therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that the future development of science and technology depends on the close interrelation of electronic engineering to all other disciplines.
Because of this reasoning, great expectations are held of leading engineers to partake in the development and production of electronic devices to support future development.
In addition fundamental scholastic ability and practice-minded knowledge are cultivated through education of the corresponding undergraduate course. Furthermore, due to the close interrelationship with other two courses in this major, knowledge of system application is to be deepened.
Information, Telecommunication and Control Systems
This research area is concerned with studying the information and telecommunication systems which are considered to be worthwhile in the present global age supported by the diverging evolution of the information technology.
Activity in this research area is focused on the following disciplines: electronic computer engineering, human information processing, mathematical informatics, digital signal processing, human interface and sound communication systems, multi-media information processing, electric circuit theory, knowledge-based information processing, and natural language processing, and cybernetics. These research fields are closely related to the previously mentioned two courses because the information technology may play a crucial role as an infra-technology in the modern industrial society which requires global human communication systems as is well appreciated nowadays. Performance-improving developments and new proposals in these areas are among the main priorities determining the research area activity.
In similar to the above-mentioned two courses, fundamental scholastic ability and practice-minded knowledge are cultivated through education of the corresponding undergraduate course. In addition, due to the close interrelationship with other two courses in this major, knowledge of system application is to be deepened.
This programme requires students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
The following qualifications are required for applicants:
All programs are conducted in English. Applicants are thus required to submit the evidence of proficiency in English in the form of an internationally-recognized standardized test score, such as TOEFL or TOEIC. The requirement for a standardized test score to be included in the applicant's file can be waived if evidence is provided that the applicant's previous degree was earned at a university in which the medium of instruction was English.
Regular students who fall under any of the following items both a) & b), may apply for Tuition Exemption (half or full amount) at Student Affairs (GS-ka) during the specific period of time. Please note that you must apply by each semester (first and second). Application period will be announced by NUT website and posted on the bulletin board of Gakusei-Shien-ka; do not miss these announcements.
a) One who has an outstanding academic record, and fairly has a financial difficulty to pay the tuition.b) One who has been damaged by natural disaster within 6 months (within 1 year for new students) so that making tuition fee is difficult.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
