Fostering practical robotic engineers
With rapidly evolving scientific technology in the background, robotic industry attracts more attention and expectations for its promising future. As technology gets more sophisticated, developing robots in wider range of industrial fields is expected to gain further momentum, closely associating with not only conventional engineering fields but also designing, arts and psychology Addressing such needs of the age, Chiba Institute of Technology is among the first who tackled the development of state-of-the-art robots by opening the Future Robotics Technology Center (fuRo) in 2003. In April 2006, CIT started the Department of Advanced Robotics to take advantage of fuRo's achievements for college education. Through studying fundamental principles of robotics, CIT intends to foster engineers with practical expertise who will be frontiers in new spheres of robotics in the future.
