Division of Human Mechanical Systems and Design (HMSD), Graduate School of Engineering

Against today’s background of evolution toward an advanced human-centric society, this division provides forward-looking education on man-machine systems that: 1) promote safe, reliable social environments; 2) provide multi-dimensional support for people’s activities, life and health; and 3) maximize the degree of freedom that humans enjoy. Teaching also covers the biorobotics and micro system engineering considerations necessary for such systems. In this way, the division supports the development of experts with communication skills and leadership qualities that will allow them to thrive on the global stage.
