Establishing a new ring of engineering under the theme of Soft-Path Engineering

From fiscal 2009 (Heisei 21), the Faculty of Engineering has been reorganized into five departments and the Graduate School of Engineering into seven Master's Programs and four Doctoral Programs.
Under the theme of “Soft-Path Engineering” established to contribute to the common needs of all of humanity by creating and developing a sustainable society, we aim to foster human resources who can face concrete issues in their individual fields, and take a flexible approach to solving these issues from a broad perspective in engineering education.
Since conventional welfare engineering includes various fields such as welfare environment, welfare bioengineering, electricity, machinery, and materials, we have reorganized all departments incorporating relevant fields of welfare, thus aiming to educate human resources with an eye on welfare in all new departments.
This reorganization features the transition of the main education/research functions from the Faculty of Engineering to the Master's Program, thus creating new scientific technology required by the 21st century.

We have also established a new “Research Center for Creative Combined Manufacturing Technology” that specializes in and integrates research and development in dies and molds, casting, and devices, which are specialties in the Faculty of Engineering and the Graduate School of Engineering. The Center consists of the Research Center for Casting Technology, the Research Center for Composite Device Technology, and the Research Center for Die and Mold Technology, and is striving to establish a base for regional collaboration and integration for skilled manufacturing. Furthermore, we have reinforced affiliated research centers and facilities such as the Non-Destructive Evaluation and Science Research Center and the Research Center for Regional Disaster Management, aiming to respond actively to regional and social needs, create new industries and products, establish an interdisciplinary research base, and foster international researchers and engineers.
Additional features include active international exchange between, not only students, but also academic teachers, and international academic exchange agreements have been concluded between overseas universities and research institutions.
