Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics

Overview

The Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics was established in April 1996 as the result of several expansions of its predecessor, the Department of Applied Mechanics, founded in 1953. The academic field of Aeronautics and Astronautics has three notable features: comprehensive ability, a mathematical approach, and the appreciation of natural science and scientific methodology. In order to overcome extreme environmental conditions, it is necessary to completely master the scientific methodologies related to this field. A methodology starts by formulating a hypothesis derived from results in natural science, and is advanced by conducting experiments and observing the results, and finally provides an interpretation or explanation of the results according to theory. In certain cases, more experiments are required to verify findings and to make further predictions. In the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the faculty members belong to various academic fields and work with each other for a common purpose.
