DOCTORAL PROGRAM

1. Overview

Manufacturing Engineering

Engineering, in the process of development, has segmentized itself while incorporating other
fields, and generated new frontiers of technology.Since this process will undoubtedly repeat
itself in the future, it is of critical importance to foster engineers who are eager to venture into
such frontiers. In this course we will not only focus on fundamental technologies but broaden
our horizons to the fields of academic boundaries.
We aim at fostering world class researchers who excel in comprehensive judgment and are
equipped with creativity, leadership, and planning ability.

Cold Regions, Environmental and Energy Engineering

Our institute is located in a colder region with the wonderful natural environment protected.To
make the best of such environment, we promote researches in social infrastructure,
environmental preservation and energy utilization at cold regions as well as researches for the
effective development of new energy. Such community originated researches have shown great
successes. Through our unique education and research in cold regions, environmental and
energy engineering, we nurture highly specialized engineers with comprehensive knowledge,
multilateral perspectives, creativity and planning ability.

Medical Engineering

One of the roles of our institute that is expected by the community is to develop and expand
engineering technology that will improve the quality of life (QOL) of the local people. In recent
years, demands in medical engineering have been increasing, and we consider it as one of our
responsibilities to meet such expectations. In this course we will promote education and esearch,
based on what we have achieved, by collaborating with local healthcare professionals. We will
foster highly specialized engineers who can contribute to the medical front from a medical
engineering point of view.
