Message from Prof. Osamu Tabata, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering
“Hello and welcome to our Faculty of Engineering. Having been entrusted with developing this department from the ground up, it is extremely close to my heart and I am certain we have created something truly unique here at Kyoto University of Advanced Science (KUAS). I believe that engineering is the most important discipline of our time - it is connected to everything from the factory to mobility, health-care to agriculture, even including communications. To build a department that truly satisfies the demand of engineers in our modern society, we had the opportunity to create everything from scratch, including gathering a truly diverse faculty as well as building a state-of-the-art facility. We believe we are a trail-blazing institution in Japan, offering an all-English engineering program with an innovative educational approach that focuses on acquiring real-world skills. I believe we are thus in an unprecedented position to challenge the best the world has to offer. “
