Experiments/Workshops on Electrical and Electronic Engineering

At the School of Electrical and Electric Engineering, experiments and workshops are conducted from the second year onwards. Their topics include the design and building of analog/digital circuits, motor inverter control, characterization of light-emitting diode, transistors and other semiconductor devices, experiments on the operating principles of microprocessors, optical communication experiments using laser, measurement for plasma, and microwave transmission experiments. Knowledge necessary for engineers and researchers is developed, beyond book knowledge, through research exercises such as data monitoring and analysis.

Unlike lectures and conventional exercises which are conducted according to instructions, students need to conduct those experiments using their insight and creativity. If there is any data processing failure or incorrect wiring in a device, students will be instructed by their direct supervisor to conduct the experiment again. As a result, some students sometimes work overtime.

In the second semester of the third year, students work on a long-term (several-week) project (4 lessons per theme x 3 to 6 themes). In a workshop to design and assess a servomotor, for example, students work to design a control (feedback) circuit to secure high speed and minimize overshoot (going beyond the target position by mistake) and assess its characteristics. A servomotor is an important device used in various types of equipment ranging from radio control and robots to airplanes and rockets. In experiments on semiconductors, students design LSI and fabricate silicon solar cells in a clean room. You will have a valuable experience if the LSI you designed works well and photovoltaic power is successfully obtained from your solar cell.

Research exercises and experiments provided by the course have received high evaluation from inside and outside the university. We are proud of providing students with the country's highest standards of educational environment: a wide range of topics to cover the field of electrical and electronic engineering in detail, fully equipped facilities, a large number of faculty members, and a teaching assistant system (use of graduate students as assistants).

In the fourth year, students are allocated to a laboratory to engage in specialized research activities. Knowledge obtained through experiments outside the field of individuals, as well as experience with their own specialty, plays a significant role in the development of human resources with a broad view of things. That is why researchers and engineers produced by our department have enjoyed a high reputation in the industry.
