The purpose of the department of Mechanical and Electro-mechanical Engineering is to establish systematic teaching and research programs focus on precision machinery and mechatronics. The graduate program provides study and research opportunities in two core areas: ‘opto-mechatronics’ and ‘precision machinery’. Students participate in the well-arranged program may gain professional knowledge and ability in these areas.

The Master’s program in Mechanical and Electro-mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1980. Over 1100 students graduated from this program may be seen in the industry, government agencies, and various research institutes; many of them are now in leading positions. The department offers the regular master’s program emphasizing in research, as well as a more practical program that is in collaboration with engineering companies. More information about this program is given below. A student may concentrate his/her study in one or more of the following areas: Solid Mechanics and Mechanical Design, Fluid Mechanics and Thermal Science, Materials and Manufacturing, and Mechatronics and Control. Current research topics include micro aviation devices, robot dynamics and control, biomechanics, assistive technology, energy engineering, precision engineering, measuring devices and technology, manufacturing automation, material processing techniques, etc.,

Research Laboratories in the department include the following:

System Control Lab., Assistive Technology Lab., Design Optimization & CFD Lab., Machine Vision Lab., Precision Machining Lab., Opto-Mechatronics Lab., Vibration & Acoustics Lab., Advanced Photonics Lab., Bio-Medical Engineering Lab., Computational Mechanics Lab., Mechanics of Machinery Lab., Nano & Micro Systems Lab., Micro Electro Mechanical System Lab., Nano & Micro Electro Mechanical Systems Lab., Functional Materials & Manufacturing Lab. etc.

A student must complete 26 credits, submit a written thesis, and pass the oral examination for his/her degree. For a student enrolls in the more practical program collaborating with an engineering company, he/she must take 26 credits in school and complete one year practical training in the company. He/she may choose to write a report instead of a thesis and take an oral defense.
