Course Progression

University education consists of courses common across the university, which all students study, and the specialized education courses of each faculty and department. In courses common across the university, students acquire good judgment, deep culture, and a well-rounded personality. In the specialized education courses, they develop solid expertise in their respective fields of engineering and the comprehensive ability to handle engineering challenges with versatility.

Courses common across the university
( Liberal Arts Courses, Basic Courses common to all departments )

At this university, students study courses outside the framework of their faculty in order to acquire a wider culture, integrated decision-making abilities, and a well-rounded personality. These courses are divided into liberal arts, covering such topics as people and culture, people and society, people and nature, and the environment, and basic courses common to all departments, such as foreign languages, health, sports, and information.

Specialized Education Courses
( Basic Professional Courses, Basic Engineering Courses, Specialized Courses )

These are the specialized courses taught in each faculty and department. The Basic Professional Courses teach the basic academic abilities (mathematics, chemistry, physics, etc.) that are required to study in the specialized fields. In the Basic Engineering Courses, students learn the basic theories, laws and techniques that are common to each field of engineering. And there are the Specialized Courses, where students improve their knowledge in their area of specialization. The Specialized Courses include seminars, experiments, practical training, specialized English, international training (overseas language training), internships, factory tours and so on, as well as lectures.
Few of these courses may be taken in the 1st year. Available courses increase in the 2nd and 3rd years, and the 4th year is centered on students’ graduation research projects.
