Outline of the Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering
The Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering aims to develop independent-minded engineers who contribute to the development of human and environment-friendly systems. Due to the fast growth of information systems, the demand for systems engineers is rapidly growing in many fields including the manufacturing, service, and communications industry. In addition, we are facing the problems of protecting the global environment and realizing the safety and security of our society. So, computer systems designed to be responsible for the environment and human society are strongly needed.
This department offers an educational program formed by three academic fields that provide a base for the development of professional human and environment-friendly systems engineers in various engineering fields. The first is methods of mathematical sciences such as mathematical modeling, simulation and optimization. The second is information sciences such as computer programming and algorithms. The last is environmental sciences such as risk management.
Education in the Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering
The Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering offers a systematic educational program consisting of subjects from mathematical science and information science. These two form the base of systems engineering. This base is joined with environmental science and engineering to help develop students’ skills needed to make them independent-minded systems engineers with the ability to create optimal systems which are both human and environment-friendly. From mathematical science, students study modeling, simulation methods, numerical calculation, mathematical optimization, etc. From computer science, they study programming, algorithms, computer networks, computer architecture, etc. Students also study subjects from environmental science such as environmental systems engineering and environmental design. The educational program includes subjects based on group based learning such as the applied practice of systems engineering and programming contests aimed at developing presentation skills, communications skills, learning ability, creativity, and research ability.
More than half of the students graduating from the Department of Systems Engineering, which is the antecedent to the Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering, go on to master’s courses. After completing their master’s degrees, a number of them go on to complete doctoral degrees.
The graduates with a bachelor’s or master’s degree from this department are expected to find jobs in system design working with the development of various industries including information technology, manufacturing, construction, public utility, services, etc. in the same way as the graduates of the Department of Systems Engineering. They have been hired by well-known leading companies in the following industries: transport machinery, transportation, manufacturing industry, communication industry, service, etc.
