Center for Fundamental Education

_In order to become an excellent practical engineer who plays an active part in the industrial world of high-technology, improving humanity by the broad knowledge and abundant culture, as well as acquiring the special knowledge and skills, is necessary. For this purpose the teaching staff at the department of general science is in charge of the following general subjects.
_The general subjects consist of basic special subjects and liberal arts. The former aims at developing the fundamental ability to understand various problems in each special field accurately and deal with them flexibly. The latter aims at developing the ability to keep up with the internationalization of the industrial world and producing members of society who have good hearts and sound minds. More liberal arts are taught in the lower grades, but some are taught in all the grades. The general subjects play a very important role in training excellent engineers.
