School/Graduate School of Engineering Gallery

This facility introduces the history of the School of Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering as well as the latest research materials.

The purpose of the gallery is to demonstrate the appeal of engineering to a broad audience and to promote interest in science and technology. For this purpose, it uses wall panels that show the history of the schools; explanatory panels that describe the current research, educational activities, and cutting-edge research results; and case displays showing prototypes, research samples, and other items of interest.

Please visit anytime on weekdays from 9:00 to 17:00.
