Concept:

A company is able to generate revenue by providing desirable products (services). So, what indeed are desirable products? If one answer to that question is to look from a management studies perspective at the demands of the market, then the perspective of management system engineering is to focus on the supplier, and aim to create efficient and effective products from an engineering point of view. Furthermore, there are a variety of issues that must be considered as well. For example, in development, 'usability', 'operability', and in production lines, 'developing products with a social nature' and 'harmony between production activities and the environment'. Most importantly, because human hands are involved in designing, developing, and manufacturing, it is crucial to create an environment that is comfortable to work in, such as 'easy to work', 'items are easy to reach', and 'easy to coordinate with others'.

The management system design course develops management system engineers that are capable of designing systems such as factories that are environmentally conscious with a comfortable work environment, learning both the theoretical and technological elements of systems relating to management.

Curriculum:

There are 3 fields of study in the curriculum, from Management Engineering (a unified system ranging from development, production, and logistics), Ergonomics (systems that are user-friendly), and Social Systems Engineering (a system conscious of the structure of information societies and the link between people and information societies). In the 1st and 2nd year, students will study at the Minami Osawa campus, learning the fundamentals of specialized fields as well as a wide range of common courses, to acquire a wide range of knowledge to add depth to engineering. From the 3rd year, students will then move to the Hino campus, select a course from the above 3 listed fields, and in the 4th year challenge themselves to special research (graduation research) in a laboratory of 4 or 5 students per staff member.
