Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Master’s / Doctoral Course)

For engineers who can play an active role in the increasingly sophisticated fields of electrical and electronic engineering

We strive to develop highly skilled engineers and researchers.

About the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Today, society’s relationship with electricity is becoming increasingly close, covering a wide range of areas such as electrical energy, electrical equipment, semiconductor electronics, computers, and information and communications.
The scope of electrical and electronic engineering, which is the basis for this field, has been further expanded.

Therefore, in order to become an excellent electrical and electronic engineer, it is important not only to study electrical and electronic engineering broadly during the four years of undergraduate study, but also to acquire deeper knowledge and skills in the specialized field in which you plan to pursue your future career.

In response to this, the department has established four specialized fields of study and strives to conduct research and education across a wide range of electrical and electronic engineering.
In the Graduate School, you will receive direct one-on-one instruction from distinguished Professors who are at the forefront of research and have achieved a great deal.
This type of education allows students to pursue their studies in depth and to participate in original research to acquire the basics of research and development skills.
Through such education and research, we also focus on guiding students in character building to become respectable members of society.

Graduates of this major are currently active in a wide range of fields, including industry, education, and government, as “dependable human beings,” which is the founding spirit of our school.


Electric Power Engineering

We are still in the process of reaching a society in which sound electric energy is available anytime, anywhere without any inconvenience, and we are conducting research aimed at creating a comfortable environment for the use of electric energy.

In particular, we are conducting research on automobiles, which are increasingly controlled electronically (e.g., automated driving tests have begun); railroad systems, which are indispensable as a means of transportation in urban areas; lightning protection for aircraft, which are equipped with electronic control systems that require higher safety standards than automobiles; lightning protection for wind power generation systems, which are an environmentally friendly power generation method but are also susceptible to lightning strikes because they are high structures; the development of materials using plasma and the decomposition of hazardous substances; and renewable energy-based power systems. The company is also conducting research on lightning protection for wind power generation systems, which are environmentally friendly power generation methods but are also susceptible to lightning strikes due to their high structure, the development of materials using plasma, the decomposition of hazardous substances, and power systems based on renewable energy sources.

Electrical Machines and Control Systems

Almost more than 90% of electrical energy is produced by generators, and about half of that is used by motors.
This field includes extensive research on rotating electrical machinery (rotating machines) and power electronics, which are the base of the generation, conversion, and control of such electrical energy.
In particular, research focuses on improving the performance, efficiency, and service life of alternating current machines (synchronous machines and induction machines) among rotating machines, various control methods for rotating machines and electric power, and more effective ways to utilize electric energy. The range of applications of generators and motors will continue to expand and their control methods will be further improved, making this a fundamental and important field of electric energy conversion equipment.

Electronic Properties and Devices

Research and development of new electrical and electronic materials and their devices are important to achieve higher performance and functionality in electrical and electronic systems.

Research themes include the development of photovoltaic materials, oxide materials, and thermoelectric materials; the application of oxide semiconductor materials to sensors and other devices; the fabrication and evaluation of new functional optoelectronic devices using diamond-like carbon and nanotechnology-based thin film fabrication techniques; the fabrication of hetero-elements, optical integrated circuits, optical control devices, and integrated circuits on Si; the search for phase transitions by measuring dielectric constants and other properties, and the determination of crystal structures by X-ray diffraction. Research on bandgap electronic properties and device physics of group III nitride and oxide semiconductors; search for phase transitions by measuring dielectric constants, etc. and analysis of physical properties such as crystal structure determination using X-rays; development of sensor devices as interfaces between virtual space and the real world, medical applications, social implementation, and construction of virtual space networks; and research and development of electronic devices for medical applications and social implementation as interfaces between virtual space and the real world. We are also conducting research on the development of sensor devices as an interface between virtual space and real society, and electronic device applications such as medical applications, social implementation, and virtual space network construction.

Electronics and Information Engineering

Research on electronic circuit design and related technologies, research on electronic devices applying advanced technologies such as lasers and computers, and research on efficient communication and communication control methods for various types of multimedia information.
Specifically, they are researching design, analysis, and evaluation technologies for high-performance integrated circuits for applications in telecommunications and medicine, and developing elemental analyzers and optical tweezers using lasers.
In addition, lectures related to research fields such as Advanced Circuit Engineering are offered.
