Educating Global Leaders in the Emerging Field
of Integrative Engineering

Introduction to the Department of Integrative Engineering

Integrative Engineering?

Refers to a set of converging technologies, which help to create and design advanced technologies by crossing boundaries between academic disciplines and by sharing the strengths of different disciplines. Our School of Intergrative Engineering includes the fields of Nano-Biomaterials Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Digital Imaging Engineering.

Our future society will demand skilled workers who can self-teach advanced knowledge and apply it to daily life. The future workforce will have to be versatile and equipped with expertise and knowledge in a variety of fields.

In other words, today's colleges are obliged to provide converging and integrative education. Such demand has had a great impact on the establishment of converging departments. Colleges will witness more interdisciplinary convergences within. Further evolution will therefore become possible only when students are taught to study in a variety of fields.

Educational Aims

The School of Intergrative Engineering aims to develop human resources that will contribute to building a knowledge infrastructure by effectively responding to rapid educational and social changes. The department will focus on developing fundamental and application technologies by realizing future-oriented converging technologies and, through a global network, on strengthening convergence-related competitiveness at the university and national level.

To accomplish the goals, based on imaginative education using an innovative system, the department will develop "integrative engineering" people who are equipped with initiative research abilities.

Educational Objectives

Below are the specific objectives of the department, which aims to develop "integrative engineering" people equipped with initiative research abilities, based on imaginative education using an innovative system.

  1. "Develop imaginative human resources" who cultivate more extensive knowledge of a wide range of disciplines related to basic sciences and engineering and who can identify, analyze, and resolve convergence-related problems.
  2. "Develop practical human resources" who have no difficulty using the technologies, methods, and tools needed for the practice of integrative engineering, who can effectively communicate with other members of the organization, and who do their best as a member of the team.
  3. "Develop initiative and proactive human resources" who meet the needs of the industrial society, who are able to plan and conduct experiments and design systems, elements, and processes to develop new technologies, and who can participate actively in continuing education.
  4. "Develop global human resources" who have an extensive understanding of the global economic and social trends related to their areas of specialty, who fulfill their occupational and ethical responsibility as an integrative engineer, and who cooperate with and contribute to global society.
