Mechanical Engineering

The main aim of this department is to cultivate students as developmental engineers who have not only fundamental knowledge of mechanical engineering, but also the broad view of things, the practical and synthetic ability to be capable of accommodating to the development of new technologies.
In studying the fundamental subjects such as strength of materials, engineering thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, kinematics of machine, engineering dynamics and so on which are essential to the mechanical engineering, students have a great deal of exercise for training to cultivate the ability in analysis and application to practical problems. Besides students can be able to have fundamental knowledge of electronics, system, information and control to accommodate to the development of the technologies.
Moreover, the department puts importance on the education in practical subjects and synthesis of technology such as mechanical experiment, manufacturing exercise, graduation research and so on to cultivate the sense of manufacturing, the creative and synthetic ability to arrange up the fundamental knowledge of technology for mechanical systems.
