Electrical Engineering

Educating active engineers in the field of electrical engineering being indispensable today and the future

Educational Features

The department intends to assist students in acquiring
advanced and specialized knowledge in the
electrical engineering field through the educational
activites consisting of the following four divisions(: 1)
Electrical fundamentals( development of new
functional materials, plasma applications,
semiconductor
devices, etc.) (2)Power and Energy Systems
(power systems, energy conversion/storage devices,
etc.)( 3)Information and Control Systems( robotics,
neural networks, fuzzy systems, optimization, etc.)( 4)
Electronics and Industry Applications (electric
machinery, power electronics, transport, etc.). Students
belong to one of the above divisions and start
learning and research activities under the individual
guidance of their supervisors just after the entrance.
