Educational Programs: Production Systems and Environmental Engineering

 Our college, which consists of five departments and two advanced courses, offers one integrated educational program in order to foster students who can work as engineers on the global stage in the future. In this program, “specialized engineering knowledge” and “engineering knowledge in different fields” are unified. Therefore, students can consider their own engineering fields broadly, and will be able to deal with complex technological issues in the future, based on wide knowledge of engineering.
 Following the initial accreditation in 2004, this program has been reaccredited by the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) , most recently in 2014.
