The Advanced Fibro-Science Division was started in 1998 to carry out research and education on fibrous materials and their applications to several fields. Our department offers graduate programs at Master of Engineering (M. Eng) and Doctor of Engineering (Dr. Eng)/Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) levels through various courses and research activities. These programs cover numerous subjects such as Textile Science and Engineering and its related special focused engineering areas including Composites and Manufacturing, Nanoengineering, Kansei and Human Interface, and Sustainability Engineering (Recycle, Degradation, and Durability). Our aim is to impart on our graduates the importance/methodology of manufacturing of human-oriented and environmentally friendly products. On-going researches are currently focused on the above-mentioned core expertise, which are aimed to expose students to various industrial oriented environments and prepare them to be part of the workforce in the related fields.
The goal of the master’s program is to nurture engineers / researchers / scientists through a series of Textile Science and Engineering based curriculum to provide them with the capability of designing / manufacturing human-oriented and environmentally friendly products. The program also includes internship attachments to the industry, project seminars conducted by the students and lectures related to social science and technology and management of technology. The international program for English-speaking foreign students is also encouraged.
The goal of the doctor’s program is to nurture engineers / researchers / scientists who will perform independent and systematic research that are related to technical problems encountered either in the academia or the industry or both, which will lead to novel design/manufacturing practices of human-oriented and environmentally friendly products.
