Kagoshima KOSEN National Institute of Technology

Department of Mechanical Engineering



 The department of mechanical engineering teaches foundations of mechanical engineering and extensive expertise for producing a wide range of machinery, and it trains creative hands-on engineers who can be active in various fields. To this end, our department teaches basic knowledge and skills to design, manufacture, and evaluate machine. Power of execution and creative faculty are also trained in our department for producing machinery in actuality. In especial, material processing and machine performance test are conducted in an experiment and practical, and the power of execution is expanded through internship. In addition, the capacity for creativity is developed through the creative practices and graduation research that the students grapple with challenges and issue resolutions with a team effort. Furthermore, academic disciplines of information processing, control engineering, mechatronics, and so on are also incorporated into our curriculum to cope with the automation and the high functionality of machines.
