Department of Electrical Engineering

Establishing technologies for securing and effectively using energy resources that are compatible with the environment is increasingly important today and looking ahead to the 22nd century.

In the Department of Electrical Engineering, leading-edge education and research are carried out, based on physical phenomena relating to electricity and magnetism, on systems that generate, transport, convert, use, and store electrical energy.

The Department has laboratories in the fields of Energy Device Engineering and Electrical Energy Systems Engineering as well as a cooperative laboratory in Advance Power Engineering. The work in these laboratories is helping to create a society in which energy generation and use are in harmony with the earth’s environment.

Why Choose Us?

The Group of Electrical Engineering, Communications Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Information Engineering (The ECEI Group) involves approximately 80 laboratories and 200 faculty members including three graduate schools as well as Research Institute of Electrical Communication, making it a major center for electrical communication and information studies in Japan. Leading-edge researches are being conducted in collaboration with government and industry.

Graduate students receive substantial support, and students starting from the Master’s phase of their Doctoral program studies are actively involved in academic presentations overseas and in submissions to international journals.

In the overall electrical and information education of Tohoku University, the Department of Electrical Engineering is responsible for graduate school education and research in electrical engineering fields. Taking up the theme of electrical energy systems, a concept extending from electrical energy generation to use and storage, and from small electrical devices to huge power transmission systems, the Department is creating and realizing the next-generation energy society.
