The Faculty of Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering are actively engaged in education, research, and social
collaboration with the goals of developing excellent researchers and engineers in technological fields, expanding our research
locally and globally, and contributing to society and industry. To achieve these goals, we introduced our new Faculty of
Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering in April 2013. Our renewed undergraduate and graduate programs in the
Departments of Mechanical Engineering and of Electric and Electronic Engineering, and the graduate program in the Business
Development & Management specialty have had many achievements since their inception. We have also added graduate and
undergraduate programs in the new Department of Electronics and Materials Science, which studies electronic and energy
materials, the Department of Applied Chemistry and Biochemical Engineering, which studies environmental engineering and
bioengineering, and the Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering, which studies the creation of human and
environment friendly systems.
In our rapidly changing society, the Faculty of Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering continue to foster creative
researchers and engineers, drive research that leads to the generation of new industries, and actively wrestle with solutions to
global problems. In Hamamatsu, in the western part of Shizuoka Prefecture, the home of the Faculty of Engineering and Graduate
School of Engineering, we have a saying, ‘yaramaika,’ which means ‘to actively attempt new endeavors.’ This area has produced
many founders of automobile companies such as Toyota, Honda, and Suzuki. They kept the ‘yaramaika’ spirit, and have led the
Japanese manufacturing industry for a long time. The researchers and engineers graduating from Shizuoka University play central
roles in those companies.
We continue to develop our original and highly admired educational program that prioritizes practical science (scholarship needed
in the real world) that persistently focuses on the manufacturing industry, and to train excellent researchers and engineers who
can take on the task of innovation in various industrial fields.
History of the Faculty of Engineering & the Hamamatsu Campus
Antecedent to Shizuoka University, the Hamamatsu School of Technology was established October 20. This school started with three departments: Mechanical
Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Applied Chemistry.
World's first successful electronic transmission/reception of an image (television transmission) using a CRT by Professor Kenjiro Takayanagi.
Faculty of Engineering was established May 31. This Faculty of Engineering started with three departments: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and
Applied Chemistry.
Research Institute of Electronics was founded. (It originated from the television laboratory established by Professor Takayanagi. It was established as the only
science and technology laboratory attached to the newly founded university.)
Graduate school (master's program) was established by the Faculty of Engineering.
Graduate School of Electronic Science (doctoral program) was founded.
Shizuoka University Faculty of Informatics was established. A portion of the Faculty of Engineering joined the new faculty.
Graduate School of Science and Technology (doctoral program) was founded. (Graduate School of Electronic Science was abolished.)
Faculty and Graduate School of Engineering consist of 5 departments; Mechanical Engineering (3 courses), Electrical and Electronic Engineering (2 courses),
Electronics and Materials Science (2 courses), Applied Chemistry and Biochemical Engineering (2 courses), and Mathematical and Systems Engineering; their
related master's programs; plus the program in Business Development & Management, bringing the total graduate programs to six.
University Location: the Hamamatsu Area, Home to World-Class Companies
Shizuoka University has two main campuses, the
Shizuoka campus and the Hamamatsu campus. The
Graduate School of Engineering and the Faculty of
Engineering are located at the Hamamatsu campus.
The Hamamatsu area is well known as an industrial area
and a number of world famous companies are based in
Hamamatsu. What is it about Hamamatsu city and its
neighboring cities that facilitated their development? All
of the factors necessary for business growth are present
in Hamamatsu: a central location in Japan near its major
cities, and the “yaramaika,” or adventurous, spirit that
provides support for the development of new businesses.
The Hamamatsu area has been a manufacturing hotbed
of musical instruments, motorcycles, and textiles. More
the automobile, optics, and electronics
industries have rapidly developed, leading to the
creation of strong networks comprised of big business
plus small and medium size venture companies that
possess unique or outstanding technologies in their
fields. In addition to these leading technology clusters in
fields such as optics, electronics and transportation
vehicles, there are efforts to speed up the forging of links
between the engineering industry and fields such as
aerospace, medicine and agriculture.
Shizuoka University’s Faculty of Engineering has grown
with the companies in Hamamatsu area and it has
contributed to the development of the Hamamatsu area.
Today, the faculty continues to participate in these
clusters and to aid these companies’ in their global

The world's first television experiment by
Professor Kenjiro Takayanagi
The world's first electronic television experiment was carried out in
1926 by Professor Kenjiro Takayanagi at Hamamatsu Technical High
School, which was the predecessor of Shizuoka University. He
succeeded in displaying an " " (the Japanese character for the
sound /i/) with a display method using a cathode ray tube.
Afterwards, Professor Takayanagi
produced a variety of results, playing
a leading technical role in the
development of the television.
His achievements were praised,
and chosen as part of an IEEE

department, our students will learn how to design and create high
performance materials that are in harmony with nature, such as materials with
optical or biological functions, and how to develop and plan environmental
chemistry and chemical systems. They will also do educational research
related to biochemical engineering, which is a new fusion of chemical
technologies with biotechnology.
Chemical and Bioengineering Course
In the hope of abandoning the consumption of fossil fuels, people of the 21st
century are increasingly demanding environment friendly biotechnologies,

The Department of Mathematical and Systems Engineering aims to
develop independent minded engineers who contribute to the
development of human and environment friendly systems. Due to the
fast growth of information systems, the demand for systems engineers
is rapidly growing in many fields, including the manufacturing, service,
and communications industries. Additionally, we are facing the problems
of protecting the global environment and realizing a safe and secure
society. Therefore, we have a pressing need for computer systems that
are designed in consideration of the environment and society. Our
department aims to develop professional Earth friendly system
engineers by offering an educational program that consists of the
methods of the mathematic sciences, such as mathematical modeling,
simulation, and optimization, the basics of computer science, such as

About the program:
This program was established for students and working adults with the
aim of training key people who will forge the future of industry and
society. It continues to produce talented business people that can create
new social values through their own deep self knowledge. The objective
of the specialty is to provide a place where practical research can be
done using practical business examples and case studies on the research
theme of solving the technical administrative issues in the
commercialization of technological development or within corporations.
This is realized by bringing in night and weekend lectures, e learning
systems using the internet, distance learning systems, and off site
classes so that students stay connected to the business world as much

About Hamamatsu
Hamamatsu is located in almost the center of Japan. As it is close to
Nagoya, and located midway between Tokyo and Osaka, all three of
these major metropolitan areas are readily accessible.
Hamamatsu’s population is approximately 820,000.
Its climate is relatively mild throughout the year. In winter, it is not so
cold, and snow seldom falls, except for near the mountain. However, it
is often windy because of the seasonal north west wind.
Hamamatsu Castle
A rainy season occurs from June to early July. In summer, the weather
is hot and humid. Sometimes the temperature exceeds 35 C (95 F).
