Micro Engineering

The Department of Micro Engineering offers an education and research program for equipping researchers and engineers with the ability to research and develop the micro-mechanical systems that are anticipated to be a key driving force behind major changes in communities and lifestyles in the 21st century. Based on a fundamental knowledge of mechanical engineering, micro engineering includes quantum engineering,required to clarify physical phenomena specific to the micro range (from the nanometer to micrometer order) and to use the quantum effects expressed at the nanometer level; material and micromachining engineering at the microscopic level to create and process materials; and system engineering and control engineering to build and manipulate nano- and microsystems. As well, this department uses the  disciplines required for clarifying the functions of living organisms and for applying molecules and cells by studying living organisms, which are the assemblies of the most precise micromachines.
