The Applied Energy Course has no equal in Japan, allowing students to comprehensively learn about electric, mechanical and chemical aspects of energy. In addition to essential subjects necessary for learning about electricity, including electric circuits, electromagnetism and electronic devices, this course includes basic lectures on machinery such as those involving heat and fluids. In addition, subjects dealing comprehensively with energy such as bioethanol, methane hydrate serve as a pillar of the curriculum. Along with expanded experiments and hands-on learning, students are encouraged to learn and think on their own. Human resources with electricity, machinery and chemistry know-how are in high demand by companies in various fields, including power, automobile, semiconductor, communications, civil engineering and construction. We support students taking on various challenges committed to accomplishing their goals.
