Production and Construction Engineering Course Doctoral Programs
The Production and Construction Engineering doctoral program is made up of four areas of coursework: Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical Systems Engineering, Social Development Technologies, and Urban Architectural Engineering.
In Mechanical Engineering, students study and research material strength, manufacturing processes, functional materials, micro- and nano-technology, combustion, flow, energy conversion technologies, and more.
In Mechanical Systems Engineering, they study and research automotive engineering and aerospace engineering as well as robots, sensors, actuators, biomechanics, virtual reality, design methods, CAD / CAM / CAE tools, machine elements, vibrational analysis, acoustic analysis, and more.
Social Development Technologies courses include analytical research and large-scale structural testing at AIT’s Seismic Resistance Experiment Center, the largest facility of its kind at a Japanese university; predicting powerful motion seismic waves, earthquake characteristics over large expanses of ground, and other signature research at the Disaster Prevention Research Center; and study and research in soil engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural and seismic engineering, social development and planning, and material and construction studies.
In Urban Architectural Engineering, students study and research architectural design and planning, building construction engineering, building environment and plant engineering, construction materials engineering, and more.
In the first area, the objective is to develop manufacturing technologies for sophisticated mechanical systems equipped with intelligent functions in order to create healthier, safer, and more comfortable living environments. The objective in the second area is the integrated development of underlying technologies and systematized technologies for the purpose of manufacturing more precise and efficient equipment. Intelligent Control Systems Engineering covers control, systems engineering, robots, sensors, actuators, biomechanics, virtual reality, and so on; Mechanical Systems Design Engineering covers primarily automotive and aerospace engineering with additional study and research in optimum design strategies, CAD / CAM / CAE tools, machine elements, vibrational analysis, acoustic analysis, medical engineering, and more.
