Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course

WEBSITE

Course Outline

In the Electric and Electronic Engineering Course, students conduct educational research in order to acquire an advanced technology developmental ability and address the issues facing communities, through the study of electric energy, optical and electronic devises, information communication technology and control system technology. Students focus on electric power engineering, semiconductor device engineering, measurement electronics, and electrical machinery in their study of electric, electronic, information, and communications engineering, which support infrastructure engineering.

Course Features

Electric and Electronic Engineering is the study that forms the foundation of various intellectual activities including; electric energy, devices, communications, information, control, bioengineering, and the environment, the majority of themes strongly related to the needs of modern society.
In this course, students can not only study specialized knowledge regarding electric and electronic engineering, but they can also think and learn how they are related to the needs of society through classwork and research activities. Additionally, we have prepared a curriculum that makes it possible for students to acquire the communication skills necessary in this generation of internationalization, and advanced technological skills related to IT. Furthermore, we aim to cultivate human resources who can give back to the community by putting their knowledge to practical use.

What kind of human resources are we training

We are cultivating human resources who can contribute to the development, design, and manufacturing of optical and electronic devices through their study of subjects related to electric energy.
