The faculty publishes “FACULTY OF ENGINEERING, CHIBA UNIVERSITY” annually in Japanese.
The Faculty of Engineering considers engineering as “a practical field aiming at the creation of a richer human culture.” In order to educate the technical experts and researchers needed to underpin our vision of society, the Faculty of Engineering is eager for applicants who are by nature interested in developing:
- The curiosity and spirit of enquiry that never tires of asking “WHY?”
- The power to consider actively “WHAT needs to be done.”
- The power to conceive “HOW aims can best be achieved” and take appropriate action.
In addition to this, the various departments within the faculty have the following special requirements:
Department of Architecture calls for:
Applicants with creative and inquiring minds who are keen to learn how to create good architecture to raise the quality of the built environment and urban contexts, and acquire a profound understanding of attendant problems.
Department of Urban Environment Systems calls for:
Applicants are welcome who have interest in ideal urban environments and thus want to study related technologies including community and urban-environment designs, urban infrastructure planning, sustainable energy, recycling systems, and information & communication technologies. Applicants who have jobs but want to enhance their personal growth opportunities are also welcome.
Department of Design calls for:
Applicants eager to understand and learn design as practical science and integrated activities of academic disciplines, technologies and arts so as to contribute to solve various problems against human beings and environments from a viewpoint of design.
Department of Mechanical Engineering calls for:
Applicants with spirit to creative fabrication for human society on the basis of mathematics and physics, who have strong wishes to understand and study mechanical engineering and science of artificial systems for our future development.
Department of Medical System Engineering calls for:
Applicants keen to play a part in medical engineering, and hence contribute to that most basic of human needs, the provision of good health, through the development of medical equipment and techniques.
Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering calls for:
Applicants with understanding of the social importance of electrical and electronic engineering and strong wish to contribute its technological development, who have will and intellectual background to obtain the specialized professional competency.
Department of Nanoscience calls for:
Applicants with dreams, inquiring minds, and persistence, who want to create a new science and technology by manipulating “nano-world” in atomic and molecular scale.
Department of Applied Chemistry and Biotechnology calls for:
Applicants with the basic understanding and interests needed for research and the application of research in chemistry, from the standpoint of functional materials, biotechnology, and environmental harmonization.
Department of Image Science calls for:
Applicants with the ambition to create human-friendly society by utilizing imaging technologies supported by fundamental sciences and also to be a sophisticated scientist and researcher who can challenge scientific, industrial and social problems.
Department of Informatics and Imaging Systems calls for:
Applicants with the ambition for actualizing a novel information society and handling intelligent systems by using wide-research-field techniques concerned with generation and retrieval of information and images.
