The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering trains human resources who systematically comprehend a high degree of fundamental knowledge in electrical, electronic, and communications engineering; who have creative abilities (the ability to come up with ideas), planning abilities (the ability to give those ideas tangible form), and persuasive abilities (the ability to convince others with those ideas) in addition to expertise with a command over areas of information technology such as data science; who endeavor in solving increasingly complex problems with ingenuity that draws upon sophisticated expertise in the fields of information and communication as well as social infrastructure systems dealing with energy; and who are capable of taking the lead in new research and development and implementation that responds to the changes in society such as Society 5.0.
Students will learn the information and theories behind electrical and electronic engineering as well as how to apply them to society at large. The Master’s Program offers two courses each corresponding to the last period of six years of integrated education to learn the knowledge, theories, and application for each field as well as further increase expertise on how to integrate each field of study in electrical and electronic engineering into society at large. The two established courses are the Information Devices and Systems Course, which examines information processing hardware, and the Energy Devices and Systems Course, which studies social infrastructure, both of which are essential subjects for current and future societies.
In the communication technology-focused field of Social Infrastructure Systems, students will use highly specialized knowledge from electrical and electronic engineering to creatively address complicated problems in order to become leaders in developing innovative R&D and implementation in response to societal changes like Society 5.0.

Hello. I studied electricity, electronics, information, and optics at Kyushu University and am currently working in QA at a Toyota manufacturing plant. My current job is more than just electronics; I have to understand a variety of fields, such as machinery, chemistry, statistics, and more. I’m learning constantly at work and make use of the electrical and information management skills I learned at university, which I think are essential in any field.
Clubs, jobs, and conferences in university also provide so many more opportunities to make friends than in high school. Kyushu University offers a variety of degrees in both the Humanities and the Sciences, and each program attracts exceptional students from around Japan, so you’ll meet a wider variety of people at Kyushu University than at other universities. The two things I think everyone should learn at university are: “Learn the specialized knowledge in your field and become an expert” and “Expand your knowledgebase by talking with specialists from a variety of fields.” The experiences I had during my six years in university were extremely helpful. The environment Kyushu University offers is made for intense academic study and provides lots of opportunities for both personal growth and meeting different kinds of people. I hope that this helps anyone looking to enter into university to learn a little more about Kyushu University.
