For students who want to join our laboratory

Overview of our laboratlry

Our laboratory accepts the students from Department of Systems Innovation, Graduate School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo. If you have a plan to study in our labratory, look at the homepage of Department of Systems Innovation. Also, please contact to here in advance.
Our laboratory researches using various approaches such as numerical simulations, experiments, and field surveys. Regardless of which approach you take, we recommend that you participate in field surveys as much as possible in order to experience the challenges of the ocean. If you want to be a master's student, we will discuss your appropriateness and hopes to set your research subject. If you want to be a doctoral student, please clarify what you want to study before taking the examination.
A two-hour laboratory meeting is held every two weeks, The progress of the research will be preseted mainly by a few students. The meeting on the research projects in the laboratory is also held every two weeks. Since the research is based on fluid mechanics, we will use the Systems Innovation Project (Tokubetsu Enshuu; Core Discipline) in the curriculum of the Department of Systems Innovation to learn it through presentations at the laboratory meeting. Depending on the research subject you are interested in, mathematical ecology, electrical engineering, control engineering, machine learning, etc. may be selected as the subject of Core Discipline.

We introduce the lecture provided at Dept. of Systems Innovation, Graduate School of Engineering, University of Tokyo.

Systems Innovation Projects (Group Work)

An eco ship driven by solar power and controlled autonomously is developed. This is the first step of students toward the realization of sustainable and low-carbon societies. We join the 'Crewless Solar Boat Competition in Lake Biwa' and won the race in spite of the boat capsizing in 2018!

Complex Fluid System Modeling

This course introduces a fundamental concept and knowledge of mathematical modeling of complex fluid systems related to the design of transportation system, the prediction of ocean environment, etc. The basic equations and the general concept of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) are introduced: basic concepts of fluid flow, finite difference scheme, solution of linear equation systems, methods for unsteady flow, etc. The CFD technique is then applied to large-scale fluid systems. This course is basically provided by English language, with Japanese language for key technical terms. This course is open every two years (even year) from 2014.
