For students

Innovation in the field of mechatronics plays a key role in the development of a technologically advanced nation. In particular, the Chubu area (the central region of Japan's main island) contains the largest cluster of the automobile and aerospace industry in Japan. In the Mechatronics Engineering course, important specific technologies and their integration schemes are presented harmoniously. In addition, academic originality and industrial application are both emphasized in the training and research of the students.

Admission Guide

Messages from Current Students

Narimitsu Igami
This department has a new type of research environment, different from that of high school. For example, students are encouraged to remember the knowledge gained in textbooks as well as to study independently the technologies that help facilitate problem solving.
Motoo Fukuda
Nagoya University has excellent teachers, friendly senior students, and the most advanced facilities. This is the best environment for concentrating on study and research. I believe you can also lead a fulfilling student life in Nagoya University.
Yasutaka Yamada
Through these classes, I learned many subjects like control engineering, which are necessary for mechatronics. After I joined the current laboratory to do my graduate study, I have learnt many new things. Such experiences give me pleasure and allow me to think deeply.

Messages from Graduates

Shunsuke Arima (Kawasaki Heavy Industries, MS graduate in FY 2011)
In the mechatronics course, we can study the interdisciplinary fields of mechanical and electrical engineering based on basic subjects such as dynamics, calculus, and linear algebra. In higher grades, we are involved in some interesting research projects like robot control. I believe that you will enjoy the course activity.
Yasuhiro Igarashi (Komatsu, MS graduate in FY 2011)
Mechantrocis Course gives you a wide variety of menus for your study. You will never be dissappointed Yasuhiro Igarashi: The Mechatronics Engineering course offers a wide variety of topics for study. You will never be disappointed even if you begin this course without any keen interest. However, do not become passive; always be proactive, curious, and enjoy your studies.
Junko Nonomura (Mitsubishi Electric Company, MS graduate in FY 2011)
Our mechatronics course has subjects with both machine systems and electrical systems. It is an environment suitable for a person who wants to do “ Mono-dukuri, ” which means“ Creative Design and Manufacturing, ”and particularly for a person who wants to analyze and control the motion of things. I strongly recommend this course to any person who is charmed by the word“ Robot! ”
Tomoya Niwa (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), MS graduate in FY 2009)
Mechatronics is the fusion of software and hardware. It is difficult to design complicated products required in the real world with knowledge of only one of the disciplines. Education in the Sub-department of Mechatronics produces outstanding engineers who are familiar with both software and hardware.
Yuuji Harada (Hiroshima University, Ph.D. graduate in FY 2009)
In the university, you can find something you want to do and realize your dream. The key is to act positive and have a fulfilled university life.
Sayaka Ono (Toyota Motor Corporation, Ph.D. graduate in FY 2008)
Tools are valuable for human beings, and their source, i.e., the accumulation of intelligence and knowledge of tools, has become the study of electronic-mechanical engineering. I derived great pleasure in creating tools filled with intelligence by trial and error.
Takaaki Nagata (Makita Corporation, MS graduate in FY 2008)
Almost all machines now need electronic control. To exercise leadership to promote projects in companies, it is demanded in the industry that engineers have knowledge in both fields of mechanical engineering and electronic engineering. The department of mechatronics provides such a professional education to produce many promising engineers who explore and expand the frontiers of engineering.
Susumu Ogata (Ph.D. graduate in FY 2006)
Technology is a tool for realizing dreams. Use it in various fields and improve it in accordance with the purpose. The technology that you learn through trial and error must embody the dream in your fashion. Why don't you make the world fun by embodying your dreams and ideas?
You will have numerous chances to learn how your technical knowledge acquired in the university is incorporated in factories and manufacturing scenes through a factory tour and a collaborative project with a company.
