Goal of the School of Engineering
The School of Engineering develops an innovative and appropriate technology of engineering for our society and educates students to utilize these technologies. Our School also creates the academic and technical knowledge to solve global issues with which humankind are faced and.returns our fruitful achievement to our society.
Concept of the School of Engineering
A rapid development of engineering technology has made a remarkable progress in human productivity and has given a lot of benefits to us. On the other hand, it has destroyed our environment and has spread a spiritual desolation as same as material prosperity.
To enjoy a bountiful life in future, we must change from an old concept of technology which consumes natural resources for short-term prosperity to a new concept of technology which enables us to build a society based on the principle of sustainable development. To solve social and global problems, we also need to create a new approach which combines the achievements of traditional engineering with knowledge of other fields beyond the traditional view of engineering concerned solely with elements.
It is the most important to train students to professional engineering researchers and technicians who will work within this framework to pursue the new vision of engineering which aspires to fulfill human ideals in order to meet the challenges of modern society and of rapid changes in industria1, social and economic structures. This is the basic concept of the School of Engineering.
