About the Department of Aerospace Engineering
At our department, we provide systematic education and research with the aim of pursuing study of advanced technology of aerospace mechanics in severe and under unique conditions, and thus creating aerospace systems that are to break new frontier. The keywords of study are “simulation science” and “space technology.” At the laboratories of simulation science, the precise simulation technology based on the science of supersonic flow, new material strength, and others, are researced and developed.
These productions are applied to next generation airplanes, airframe designs, and more. At the laboratories of space technology, autonomous exploration robots for future space exploration, conceptualizing large scale space structures that are most often typified by space stations, and even new generation engines for spacecraft are researched. Through these projects, we are greatly contributing to elevating the core technology of future space development and research.
