The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering provides education programs which assist students to systematically understand basic and advanced knowledge of electrical engineering, electronics and communication technology. The department educates research engineers who possess the ability to create new values for a future based on certain knowledge of information and communication technology and electrical systems. These are, for example, an engineer who creates low-energy consuming electrical systems that contributes to solving global warming issues or an engineer who creates new information-technology-based social-systems that provide safety and comfort for human life. To meet these goals, the department offers the following education courses:
Information Electronics Course aims at proving an education for researchers and highly skilled engineers who are able to lead the creation of next generation electronics and applications and who can contribute to the sustainable growth of electronics related industry through research and development of advanced electronic devices and integrated electronics. The education program is managed by faculty members in the Department of Electronics, Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering.
Innovative creation of highly functional electronic devices is the engine of the development of future information and communication society. This division provides research and education programs to students who are interested in electronic properties of semiconductors, magnetic material, dielectric material and organic materials and their application to electron, magnetic, optical and bio devices and nanotechnology to produce device functions.
As we learn from Large Scale Integrated (LSI) circuits it is necessary to produce integrated electronic systems to create social values from the elemental function of electronic devices. This division provides research and education programs to students who want to learn design and process technology of LSI, information communication using radio frequency electromagnetic waves, information display and opto-electronic systems in terms of the five elemental composites of information systems, sensing, processing, memory, communication and display.
The field of Electrical and Electronic Systems based on the electro magnetic phenomena is the most fundamental and key technology to support our society and its infrastructure. Nowadays, the field is rapidly advancing and diversifying its applications by merging with high technologies including superconductivity, information and control technologies based on a new paradigm and digital technologies aiming at advanced intelligent systems. The department is composed of four divisions of Measurement and Control Engineering, Applied Energy Engineering, Superconductive Systems Engineering and Energy and Environment. The department offers advanced education and research programs in each division, not only for Master and Doctoral students but also for professional engineering trainees entrusted by industries and foreign countries.
Education and research in Measurement and Control Engineering is based on creating future measurement and control systems aiming at integrating electrical and electronic systems, control technology and information technology. Education and research includes:
Electric power and energy systems are one of the key infrastructures that support our lives and various industries including information technology. Applied Energy Engineering provides education and research concerning systems of generation, transmission, storage, control and effective use of electric and electromagnetic energy. It deals with the development, application and protection of electric and electromagnetic energy systems for future generations including a new power generation system, a superconducting electric power system, an electromagnetic energy system, a high-voltage pulsed power system, a high-power laser system, high-density and high-temperature plasma system and applied discharge system. In addition, it targets to limit the power consumption of power electronic systems, while preserving their high performance at low EMI emissions using high technology of analog/digital mixed electronic circuits.
Superconductivity leads to key technology for advanced electric power machines and devices, which provide new energy generation, energy transmission and energy storage systems with high efficiency and high energy density in future highly intelligent societies. In addition, it will play an important role in magnetic sensors with extremely highly sensitivity and in mobile communications with high performance. Superconductive Systems Engineering offers education and research on superconductivity focusing on basic material science, analysis and evaluation techniques of electromagnetic properties and application technology of superconducting films, wires and cables.
Rising public awareness for environmental protection and continuously increasing energy consumption have created an interest in renewable sources. Due to utilizing useful renewable sources as a substitute for fossil fuels, the study of renewable power generation systems are being executed. It is possible that integration of renewable power generation systems leads to ill conditions of electric power systems. In order to maintain the stability and quality of power systems, the purpose of our research is to clarify power system dynamics and establish power system control method by renewable sources.
