Doctor's Course, Graduate School
Materials and Environmental Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering play an
important role in the progress of advanced industries, and the control
of the environment is indispensable for the modern human life. DIT initiated
Doctor Course of Materials and Environmental Engineering in April, 1995.
The following six fields are prepared for the study in the doctoral program.
Functional materials Engineering
New functional materials , including metals,
ceramics, intermetallics and their composites are widely researched and
developed, using advanced technique.
Especially, electric and magnetic and related materials
are prepared and evaluated in the form of thin film, cluster, and nano-order
crystal/amorphus particle for new-born scientific world..
Advanced Electronic Devices
The study starts at the fundamentals of
solid state physics, and is extended to the new academic developments of
electronic materials and is also made on the analysis of some problems
of electronic devices. The application of electron-beam process in semiconductors
is being investigated. Mechatronics and intelligent robots are also studied
and educated in this laboratory.
Heat Process Engineering
Fundamental and systematic education and
research are made on heat process engineering such as analysis for heat
transfer engineering related to effective use of thermal energy, simulation
for material manufacturing process of warm processing and
experiments related to above theoretical analysis. These
are important to environmental problems as well as energy one. A development
of turbulent flow problems is also included.
The research work in this field is concerned
with the fundamental and applied studies in the behavior of materials at
high-temperature and in corrosive environments.
The efforts are mainly devoted to the analysis
of interaction between the strength, deformation and fracture of materials
and structures, and environmental conditions and material treatments.
Electromagnetic Energy and Noise
There are two main subjects in this field.
The first is the study in the electromagnetic
energy, plasma phenomena and the fundamental process
of electrical discharge. The second is directed to wave phenomena. Environmental
problems related to city noise problems and biological engineering are
Human Environment Design
Research works and education concerning
environmental control for human society have been carried out in the laboratory.
The following items are included:
Water environment concerning natural disaster and water
resources, Design of urban life and historical techniques and arts of architecture.
