Computational Applied Science

In modern technology, the field of research has been extended from microscopic phenomena in nanotechnology to macroscopic phenomena associated with the global environment and space engineering. The resulting promotion of interdisciplinary exchange is dramatically changing the traditional style of research.

Technologies involved in computer simulation and the network system have little effect on the environment, thus making it possible to analyze and design at a low cost in a short amount of time. These are essential factors in increasing productivity, which is especially important in Japan, with its small amount of resources. The central region of Japan (Chukyo Area) is an industrial hub for transportation equipment such as automobiles and airplanes, as well as manufacturers of machine tools and other related products. Consequently, the introduction of the simulation technology to the development of design is expected to be effective. Advanced engineers who engaged in creative work are particularly in demand.

The field of Computational Applied Sciences covers a wide range of research topics from nano-scale atomistic (electronic) phenomena to macro-scale phenomena such as continuous fluidization, and various other phenomena such as group movement and the flow of information within a network. Our education and research will lead to the development of common analytic methods regardless of the character of the phenomena, grid calculation and large-scale high-precision simulation with an outlook on the next generation supercomputer, high-precision high-speed algorithms, as well as comprehensive presentation methods.

We look forward to the involvement of courageous next-generation engineers putting into practice imaginative ideas not bound by the territories of traditional technology.
