Interdisciplinary Faculty of Science and Engineering

image1 The Interdisciplinary Faculty of Science and Engineering of Shimane University was established in October 1995, arising from reorganization of the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Agriculture. The ultimate objective of our Faculty is to fuse and integrate the discipline of science and the analysis of natural phenomena to develop fundamental ideas in the form of scientific truths, with the discipline of engineering responsible for developing technologies that enable the design and production of objects and systems for specific purposes. The Faculty features an interdisciplinary education and research system that spans many topics ranging from fundamental science to engineering, providing solutions to the problems of society today. These features combine to form an educational and research system unique in Japan.
 The Faculty consists of five departments: Material Science; Geoscience; Mathematics and Computer Science; Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Architecture and Production Design Engineering. Approximately 400 undergraduate students enter in each school year.
 The Faculty aims at providing students with the “fundamental sense and application capability” required to cope with the advanced and ever-changing developments in science and technology in the 21st century. After graduation, approximately 40% of our students enter higher graduate courses. Graduates also find employment in a wide variety of companies and government agencies.


International Admission Policy


 We accept international students with academic vision in the interdisciplinary field of science and engineering, and also with strong desire toward developing new science and technology, promoting international academic exchange, and enhancing sustainable development of the human world. We provide advanced lectures, seminars, and research work for students in their specialized fields. The aims of the educational program of this faculty are to cultivate creative students who are capable of understanding scientific knowledge and technology based on both general and specialized education, and to encourage students so that they can have an international view of their specialized fields.



Message from Dean

  "Interdisciplinary" is the keyword to explain the scope of our Faculty. We provide an education not only covering a wide range of disciplines in science and engineering but also cultivating an ability to integrate different disciplines and produce something totally new. Many students from various countries have studied in our Faculty or our Graduate School under the direction of our excellent teaching staff. After the graduation, they are now working in many places in the world as the front-runners in science and engineering.

  Our university locates at Shimane prefecture which is a region that had an ancient dynasty, an origin of Japanese myths. This region is also rich in Nature with many places for sightseeing. Will you open up new science and engineering with us in this beautiful Shimane?
