Engineering has greatly contributed as science and technology to realize a rich and sustainable society. Upholding the goal of bringing about innovation to science and technology through education and research, we at the Graduate School of Engineering of Osaka Prefecture University have coined a new term as our slogan, TECHNOVATION, combining “technology” and “innovation.” As a central component of an advanced research-oriented university serving as a regional center of reliability with global aspirations, which OPU envisions to be, the Graduate School of Engineering has been producing innovative research results, creative technologies, and quality engineers and researchers here in Osaka to benet the whole world.

We believe that the University’s missions are education, research, and contributing to society. The Graduate School of Engineering, with its over 200 diverse and excellent faculty members, offers advanced education while conducting cutting-edge research, true to its fundamental philosophy of valuing the quest for truth and knowledge, advancing science and technology that harmonize with the natural environment, and contributing to society’s sustainable development and cultural creation, so as to nd solutions to various problems facing today’s society. Through our education and cutting-edge research in respective areas of specialization, we endeavor to train future engineers and researchers who are equipped with a broad perspective, solid academic competences, rich humanity, high ethical standards, advanced specialization and can fruitfully contribute to society.

The Graduate School of Engineering offers six divisions: Mechanical Engineering; Aerospace and Marine-System Engineering; Electronics, Mathematics and Physics; Electrical Engineering and Information Science;Materials Science and Engineering; and Quantum and Radiation Engineering. These six divisions are divided into a total of ten departments.

Many former students who studied at the Graduate School of Engineering actively work in diverse sectors of society, greatly contributing to technological innovation in their respective elds. Thanks to them, strong ties have been formed between the Graduate School and the industrial world in terms of human resource procurement and research collaboration.

Our educational and research facilities are of excellent quality and are constantly being improved. Support system for graduate students is also enriched. We look forward to highly motivated new students full of intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm.
