Greetings from the Dean

Engineering is a field of study that aims to solve social problems and create new values based on mathematics and natural sciences. Therefore, it is necessary to face society’s problems constantly, carefully consider human welfare, health, security, and safety, and aim for technological development and social implementation with high sustainability and efficiency from a multifaceted perspective.

For this reason, in engineering education, it is essential to develop specialized knowledge and skills and problem-finding and problem-solving skills that combine flexibility, creativity, and sociability. In addition, developing engineers based on self-growth ability to keep up with global technological innovation is essential.

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of the Ryukyus recognizes the importance of engineering education and is constantly improving its teaching methods and curriculum. In addition, we maintain cutting-edge educational content by actively incorporating the academic research results of faculty members into our education.

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of the Ryukyus has a single-department system that includes seven educational courses covering the field of engineering: mechanical engineering, energy and environment, electrical and systems engineering, electronic and communication engineering, civil engineering, architecture and building engineering, and computer science and intelligent systems. The intention is to take into account the uncertainty of modern society and to be able to respond flexibly to various changes in the situation in the future. Furthermore, linking courses within a single department makes it possible to expand students’ learning opportunities and efficiently solve complex research issues through collaboration between different fields.

We, the Faculty of Engineering, University of the Ryukyus, will open up the future as an engineering education and research base open to Asia and the Pacific with a view of the world centered on Okinawa from the southernmost island of Japan, the Ryukyu Islands.

Morikazu Nakamura,

Dean of Engineering, University of the Ryukyus
