Department of Systems, Control and Information Engineering

Outline

A "system" is a structure in which various parts operate together to ensure the operation of the whole structure. All of the manufactured goods we use in our daily lives can be called systems. In the Department of Systems, Control and Information Engineering, students learn the broad range of knowledge required to be able to create a "computer-centered system".

Course Aims

Computers and information technology are an essential part of our daily lives. They control industrial products such as electrical appliances and cars, as well as the production machinery and industrial robots that make these products. They are also a vital part of financial and logistics systems. Computers consist of hardware--microprocessors, hard drives, RAM, etc--and software--operating systems and applications--brought together to form a usable device for processing digital data. Engineers in this field therefore need to possess knowledge in a wide range of fields, including mechanics, electronics and information, as well as knowing how to control these systems. As such, there will be a greater demand in both domestic and international markets for engineers who excel at both hardware and software engineering. Becoming an excellent computer engineer requires a marriage of electrical and mechanical engineering with system control engineering. With the building of computer systems as its core concept, the Department aims to produce technicians who can bring a global view to a field that combines information technology, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. Course aims are as follows:

  • To train students to use computers, the tools of the trade, through specialist subjects relating to applied computer science and practical work such as experiments.
  • To provide students with fundamental knowledge of building systems and sharpen their design sense through specialist subjects relating to mechanical engineering, electric and electronic engineering, and practical work such as experiments.
  • To train students to use technology that combines information technology, mechanical engineering and electrical and electronic engineering, such as imaging and computation systems, information systems, control systems and mechanical systems.
  • To allow students to apply the knowledge they have acquired and develop creativity with a global perspective through industry-specific research.
