Division of Engineering


Amidst the rapidly evolving information scientification 21st Century, each field is undergoing striking development. In particular, it is not an understatement to claim that the field related to the weapon system is pioneering the field of high-tech science worldwide. As such, the field of machinery/system engineering, as a pioneer of modern science civilization, will lay the academic foundation that elite officers must be equipped with and will project the future vision.


The objective is to transform cadets into professional key commissioned officers to lead the future science technology oriented army by understanding and applying the engineering principles of weapons and to foster the ability to efficiently manage and apply weapons and equipment as military officers and military science technicians. Furthermore, by educating cadets on specialized knowledge related to general dynamics and mechanical engineering, cadets would be able to execute actual work and make evaluations from a specialist perspective based on the academic studies and skills at actual work and policy making departments after commissioning and furthermore, understand the army's scientification and technical policies systematically and logically, ultimately inculcating the ability to perfectly execute force integration and elitism duties.
