An integrated view of “electricity” from two perspectives: actual objects and abstract concepts.

The type of engineer we aim to produce

The miniaturization and increasing performance of computers have greatly changed the lives of human beings, leading to a global information and communication revolution. In the near future, we will be able to obtain the necessary information in the necessary form across space and time, and dreams of assistance by conscious robots and medical applications of cyborg technology will be realized. In Cluster 2, students study computer-based system control, information management, transistors, and integrated circuits to develop and research new technologies that will be needed in the future. Cluster 2 is characterized by the comprehensive treatment of “electricity” from two perspectives: the actual objects of electricity and electronics, and the abstract concepts of information and systems. Ultimately, we aim to train engineers who can meet the needs of the time.

Admission Information

In accordance with the admission policy, we offer three entrance examinations: the General Entrance Examination, February-Term and March-Term, and the Hiroshima University splendor (Hikari Kagayaki) Entrance Examination (Comprehensive Selection TypeⅡ). In addition, we offer a third-year transfer examination mainly for students who have graduated or will graduate from the institute of technology. Each entrance examination has its own characteristics in terms of the evaluation method and examation method and is open to a wide range of students.


First year admission (Admission Capacity: 90 students)

General Entrance Examination, February-Term (Admission Capacity: 70 students)
Students are required to take the Common Test for University Admission (seven subjects in five subject areas) and the independent tests given by Hiroshima University in mathematics, science (physics, chemistry), and foreign languages. In the early scheduled entry exam, the ratio of points allocated to the independent tests is higher than that of the Common Test for University Admission, and the emphasis is placed on the independent tests, which are mainly written tests.

General Entrance Examination, March-Term (Admission Capacity: 8 students)
The entrance examination consists of the Common Test for University Admission (four subjects in six subject areas) and an interview. In the interview, the applicant will be asked questions about his or her interest in science and technology, ability to think logically, motivation to study, and aptitude. In the second round test, the ratio of points allocated to the Common Test for University Admission is extremely high, as the special emphasis is placed on basic academic skills based on the Common Test for University Admission.

Hiroshima University Splendor (Hikari Kagayaki) Entrance Examination (Comprehensive Selection TypeⅡ) (Admission Capacity: 2 students)
The first screening (application documents, essay, and interview) and the final screening (Common Test for University Admission) are used to determine the final successful applicants. In the essay and interview, applicants will be tested on their motivation for applying, aptitude, academic ability in mathematics and physics, writing ability, application ability, and ability to be creative and inventive.
In addition to the above-mentioned selection that requires the Common Test for University Admission (Comprehensive Selection Type II), we are also recruiting a few students for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Entrance Examination.

Entrance Examination for Engineering Special Course, February-Term (Admission Capacity: 45 students in the entire School of Engineering. About 10 students are assigned to Cluster 2 after the first semester of the first year)
Students are required to take the Common Test for University Admission (seven subjects in five subject areas) and the independent tests given by Hiroshima University in mathematics, science (two subjects from physics, chemistry, and biology), and are screened for acceptance or rejection based on their total score. At the end of the first semester of the first year, ten students are assigned to Cluster 2 according to preferences and grades in the first semester of the first year.

Selection for International Students, February- and March-Term
In February-Term, in addition to the results of Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students and the English Language Proficiency tests designated by the university, the results of the individual achievement test (same as the general entrance examination, February-Term) and an interview will be used to evaluate the applicant’s academic performance. For March-Term, the results of the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students and the English Language Proficiency tests designated by the university, as well as an interview, will be used to evaluate the applicant’s academic performance.


Third-year university transfer (Admission Capacity: 3 students)

The evaluation of the interview, transcript, and TOEIC®/TOEFL® score certificate will be combined to determine the applicant’s acceptance or rejection. In the interview, the applicant will be asked questions about his/her specialty (electromagnetism, electric circuits, or information and systems engineering) and mathematics to evaluate his/her basic academic skills and logical thinking ability.

Biological Systems Laboratory

In the program of Electrical, Systems and Information Engineering, of which I am a member, students can study fundamental theories in the fields of electric circuits and energy, AI, control, and system planning, as well as applications such as power systems, computers, robots, biological systems, and human-machine systems. You can learn the skills needed to use ICT technology to change the world to make it easier to live.
When I started to work at Hiroshima University in 2011, I never thought that the world would change so drastically in 10 years. I believe that the knowledge you can learn in our program is becoming even more critical. I hope that you will learn to take charge of your situation no matter what happens in the world at our school.

In some cases, it is quicker to get off at Hiroshima Station on the San-yō Shinkansen and take the JR San-yō Line to Saijo Station.
Cabs are also available from Higashi-Hiroshima Station, with a fare of about 2,000 yen.

By Air

JR provides bus services from Hiroshima Airport to Shiraich Station (San-yō Line). The train from Shiraichi Station takes just under 10 minutes to Saijyo Station, and you can get a bus bound for Hiroshima University from the station.

By High Way Bus

JR provides high way bus services (Green Phoenix) from Hiroshima Bus Center to Hiroshima Univeristy. There are 15 round trips per day.

Nearest Bus Stop to Cluster 2

Hirodai-Chuouguchi:The School of Engineering’s A1 building is about 500 meters to the south. Graduate School of Advanced Sciences of Matter (Laboratories related to Program of Electronic Devices and Systems) is about 200 meters to the east.
Hirodai-Higashiguchi:The School of Engineering’s A1 building is about 200 meters to the west. Graduate School of Advanced Sciences of Matter (Laboratories related to Program of Electronic Devices and Systems) is about 200 meters to the north.
In some cases, it is quicker to get off at Hirodai-Chuouguchi because the bus goes around to the left.
