Precision Systems and Mechanical Processing
The field of precision systems and mechanical processing involves development of design and manufacturing technologies to increase precision and systemization of machining tools, as well as development of new precision processing methods; development of welding and fusing methods for a variety of materials, as well as molecular-scale structural analysis of these interfaces; research into strength, deformation, and fracture events of materials; and development of instruments for use in medical and residential environments for which tribology and wear studies are key.
Robotics, Control, and Instrumentation
The field of robotics, control, and instrumentation involves research into sensors and measurement methods based on new principles; cutting-edge control algorithms such as for adaptive control; and intelligent, not simply automated, mechanical systems and robots.
Advanced Thermal and Fluid Energy Systems
In the field of advanced thermal and fluid energy systems, we educate and research on machines that use microchannels and microbubbles; analysis of fluid flow characteristics within fluidic devices and resulting data; development of advanced thermal transport equipment; and analysis of thermal transport properties.
Applying microbubble generators and mist generators in industry
This research aims to apply our independently developed devices capable of generating microbubbles a few dozen μm in diameter (1μm = 1/1000 mm) and fine droplets to a wide range of fields in industry.
Mechanical System Design
In the field of mechanical system design, we perform comprehensive educational research into the behavior of materials in environments where they may be subject to high temperatures, high pressures, shocks, etc., as well as various related phenomena. The results of this research are used in building cutting-edge machines, e.g., cars and aircraft.
In the field of applied mathematics, we perform research related to information mathematics and nonlinear analysis.
Based on research into various mathematical structures, such as algebraic systems and discrete mathematics, we perform research and applied research into basic theoretical structure in order to deeply understand informatics in a broad sense through mathematics focused material related to information.
We perform research on partial difference equations that account for various physical and engineering phenomena. We build theories to more deeply understand these phenomena, and run data simulations using computers to provide a deeper visual understanding.
Probability and Statistics
In the field of probability and statistics, we perform research regarding probabilistic analyses and statistical science.
We think about probabilistic models that describe a variety of non-deterministic phenomena, come up with logical developments to better understand these phenomena, and provide education research on methods that apply to analyzing random phenomena that occur widely throughout all fields of engineering.
With an increasing demand for data sciences nowadays due to the prevalence of big data as a result of the spread of ICT, we perform theoretical research and research its applications regarding statistical methods that form the basis of data science.
