Most convenient devices we find around us now come with transistors and other minuscule electronic devices. This goes without saying for computers and mobile phones, but is also true for cars, TVs, and even washing machines.
As the information society develops further in the 21st century, there is no question that electronic devices and other microdevices, optical devices, and bioengineering devices will be at the core of future industry.

For example, to develop new optical communication systems, environmental solutions, advanced medical technology, and robotics, the development of high-speed optical/electrical conversion devices, high efficiency energy conversion devices, high-performance sensors, and driving devices is essential.
Microscience research supports these technologies.

The field of microscience is structured on basic research, which focuses on the behavior of electrons and atoms in materials and discovers new principles, and the applied research, which uses these principles to develop new materials, devices, and measurement methods.

Japan is the industry leader in optical communications, semiconductors, magnetic recording, polymers, and catalyst polymers. These industries have been built upon academic research. 
As expectations for Japan as global leader grow, the future depends on development of advanced scientific technologies which are supported by such research.

The College of Engineering Sciences is designed in order to respond to these demands of the era, and the new structure and concept of our College offers the perfect environment to study microsciences. No matter how Japanese industry will transform itself in the future, engineers with the knowledge of basic engineering sciences from our College will continue to be in wide demand.

We also place importance on computer literacy, which is the "language" of engineers.
