This Mechanical Engineering programme is offered by Hokkaido University.


In this Mechanical Engineering programme offered by Hokkaido University students can opt for any of these four disciplines: 

Mechanical and Space Engineering (MSPE) 

Students in this division take course subjects in space engineering and cutting-edge mechanical engineering based on fundamental knowledge of mechanical and intelligent systems engineering. These subjects, along with research activities and research presentations, support the development of engineers and researchers capable of sound judgment based on problem identification and resolution ability, presentation skills to communicate their ideas in Japan and overseas, the capacity to independently promote research and technology development, a strong sense of ethics and an international perspective.

Energy and Environmental Systems (EES) 

Students in this division take advanced course subjects in energy systems engineering and nuclear engineering to support research on cutting-edge energy utilization technology based on fundamental knowledge of mechanical and intelligent systems engineering.

Human Mechanical Systems and Design (HMSD)

 This division provides forward-looking education on man-machine systems that promote safe, reliable social environments provide multi-dimensional support for people’s activities, life and health maximize the degree of freedom that humans enjoy. 

Quantum Science and Engineering

The use of quantum beams and plasma is indispensable for the development of new science and technology fields such as those of material/life sciences and industrial base technology. This division provides systematic educational programs in science and technology concerning quantum beams, plasma and their practical application in nanomaterials. The aim is to produce researchers and engineers who can respond flexibly to technological development in interdisciplinary and boundary areas.
