Mechanical and Space Engineering

Mechanical and Space Engineering (MSPE) 

Students in this division take course subjects in space engineering and cutting-edge mechanical engineering based on fundamental knowledge of mechanical and intelligent systems engineering. These subjects, along with research activities and research presentations, support the development of engineers and researchers capable of sound judgment based on problem identification and resolution ability, presentation skills to communicate their ideas in Japan and overseas, the capacity to independently promote research and technology development, a strong sense of ethics and an international perspective.
