Message from Dean

Ichiro HIROMITSU Professor

What is unique about our Faculty is that Shimane University is the first state-run university in Japan to set up an interdisciplinary department that integrates scientific courses based on both fundamental research of natural science, and on engineering courses aimed at advanced technological development. Our Faculty aims to provide students with opportunities for a balanced education and research, ranging from fundamental science to advanced application technology.

I look forward to meeting the many students that select our Faculty. The rich natural setting of Matsue and the academically friendly environment of our faculty together nurture our students’ questioning minds toward nature, as yet undiscovered technology, unknown worlds, and new challenges.
