Department of Management Science and Technology is engaged in researches regarding “forthcoming technologies for future society” as well as “forthcoming society with advanced technologies.” Our department consists of two parts: Management of Technology and Science, Technology and Society.
Management of Technology
|Laboratory / Staff||Research Theme|
|Management of Technology
||In this course, using approach of advanced science and technology, education and research are conducted to create innovative product and/or service and/or new business with the international competitiveness and link them to innovation in firms.
| Management of Integrated System Technology
||For realization of sustainable, safe, secure and healty society, researches on advanced image sensor technologies including semiconductor processes, devices and integrated circuits as core of intelligent interface system are being conducted in this field of study. Through research, development, and practical realization of advanced technologies including, but not limited to, following topics, students are trained to earn management skills as well as high technological specialities.
|Comprehensive Biomedical and System Engineering
||We are studying advanced medical and welfare systems based on communication and information technologies. The study focuses not only on development of a human interface system that is friendly to the elderly and the physically challenged but also on evaluation of the effect of using the system.
Science, Technology and Society
|Energy Systems Analysis and Design
||The laboratory focuses on energy systems analysis, integrated design, and methodologies with social and economic dimensions on the basis of both engineering economics and systems engineering. The study includes various aspects of energy systems include technological learning, innovation, security, and Sustainability Development Goals.
|Advanced Social Energy System
||The 21st century is called as “the century of environment”. In the field of electrical engineering, it is essential for further efficient energy generation, transportation, conversion, and usage in consideration of the environment. To realize it, static and rotating machines, and power electronics are key technologies.
Our laboratory focuses on the development of high-efficient electric machines, and the advanced system which is composed with several static and rotating machines and power converters.
|Risk Assessment and Management
||The aim of our research is to enhance the safety of large-scale complex systems by utilizing the methods of risk assessment and management. Focusing on the aspects of interaction between human and machines, we study human factors problems from variety of viewpoints. In addition, dialogue between experts and citizens about science and technology is also studied for promoting mutual better understanding of the risk and benefit of advanced technologies. The examples of our research topics are as follows:
|Management of Transportation and Society
||We conduct pioneering research of the transportation management for sustainable society, taking into account the recent advances in self-driving technology, electric vehicles, big data in transportation, etc.
The relevant topics are:
|Information and Communication Social Engineering
||We will conduct research on the new generation of optical information communication technology and medical diagnosis systems applying them. Through studies on specialty optical fibers, optical sensors, optical functional devices, and research on biological information measurement/communication technology using light, develop flexible thinking and problem-solving skills.
|Intellectual Property Right
||I have been working on econometric analysis of the creation and diffision of knowledge, which is innovation. Research topics I addressed so far include: knowledge spillover from university research to industrial innovations; technology transfer from manufacturing extension centers to small local firms; determinants of new firm creation at business incubators; and impact of the quality of patents biotechnology startups own on IPO. Students who consider studying under my supervison must see my website below and make contact with me before application by sending a research proposal. http://sites.google.com/site/nfukugawa/|
