Science of Measurement
Science begins with measurement. It naturally follows that progress in science is vitally dependent on the development of measurement techniques. The purpose of our curriculum is to train and nurture scientists skilled in leading-edge measurement techniques, especially in the areas of optical technology, mechanics, and electromagnetics. The topic of evaluation of measurement uncertainties is required in common in all scientific measurements, and is taught as an elementary subject. Advanced subjects are structured differently depending on the research area and are selected according to the student's interests and the advisor's recommendation. The area of optical technology offers subjects such as nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and optical frequency metrology. Subjects in the area of mechanics include experimental mechanics, tactile sensing, and vacuum engineering. These tutorial-based subjects go in hand with practical training involving hands-on work in lab experiments. The demand for scientists with measurement expertise is increasing with the development of science and technology. Students who complete the curriculum can expect to further their careers by working in fields related to measurements and standards in industry, government labs, and academia.
