Course Description

We will discuss about the cases which are regarded as problems in engineering. And we consider the results of computer science and semiconductor industry. We will also discuss about the infrastructure technology. Furthermore, we will discuss about the technology of manufacturing arms and ammunition and the protection of the environment.

Course Objectives

Precision engineering has dealt with a wide range of issues such as design, production, processing, mechatronics and measurement. The purpose of this course is summarizing the facts learned in the undergraduate school and developing discernment in engineering. After summarizing technology spanning the millennia, we shall discuss up-to-date manufactured products and consider the future engineering methods.

Grading Policy

I ask for two or more theme discussion or the report presentation summarized the view during a term.
A view is shown also from the teacher in charge of the contents, and I will evaluate.
Even if it is a different opinion, I am rational, respect and evaluate the opinion with backing.
Thus, the contents of the discussion under lecture and the contents of the submitted subject estimate results.
