2In the modern world, progress in technology is founded on the achievements in science, and these advances must be supported by continually developing technology. Technology and science are thus tightly knit together. The necessity of reecting on this situation in research and education, particularly at Osaka University which is located in a major industrial area, was emphasized by Dr. Kenjiro Shoda while he was president of the university. Plans were laid out by Dr. Shoda to establish a new school for this purpose, rather than to extend the School of Science and School of Engineering which had their own separate aims. Through his eorts and those of former university President Dr. Shiro Akabori, together with support from the industry in and outside of Osaka, the School of Engineering Science came into existence in April 1961, and the Graduate School of Engineering Sci-ence was opened in April 1964.The School and Graduate School are unique in name and character in Japan. Their purpose is to develop scientists with a keen interest in practical technology and engi-neers with a rm grasp of the basic sciences, who may use their expertise to develop new technology.In April 1997, the departments of the Graduate School of Engineering Science were reorganized by restructuring the old departments into four departments; "Physical Sci-ence", "Chemical Science and Engineering", "Systems and Human Science", and "Informatics and Mathematical Sci-ence". In April 2002, some groups in "Systems and Human Sci-ence" and "Informatics and Mathematical Science" moved to the newly founded graduate schools of Osaka University: Information Science and Technology, and Frontier Bioscience. They play important roles in educa-tion and research of these new areas.In April 2003, Graduate School of Engineering Science was reorganized in order to create new research elds in the multi- and inter-disciplinary areas. The new Graduate School of Engineering Science has three departments: "Department of Materials Engineering Science" dealing with physical and chemical materials from a unied view point of materials science, "Department of Mechanical Science and Bioengineering" dealing with mechanical science and bioengineering from the view point of applied mechanics, and "Department of Systems Innova-tion" dealing with electronics, systems and mathematics from the view point of system creation.Graduate School of Engineering Science/School of Engineering ScienceGraduate School of Engineering ScienceThe School of Engineering Science was established in April 1961. In April 1997, the School of Engineering Sci-ence was reorganized to develop engineering science based on a new concept. The School of Engineering Sci-ence is characterized as an institution, which undertakes not only the exploration of novel aspects of engineering that directly reect modern developments in basic sciences, but the cultivation of new types of engineers and scientists with a creative sense of technology.There are four departments and each department has two or three courses: Electronics and Materials Physics (Division of Electronics, and Materials Physics), Chemical Science and Engineering (Division of Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering), Systems Science (Division of Me-chanical Science, Systems Science and Applied Informat-ics, and Biophysical Engineering) and Information and Computer Sciences (Division of Computer Science, Soft-ware Science, and Mathematical Science).School of Engineering ScienceThe inscription shown left is a congratulatory address written by Dr. Shoda, the rst dean of the Faculty of Engineering Science, in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the faculty. It reads:The faculty, through devotion to the fundamental developments of technology through a fusion of science and engineering, contributes to the creation of the true culture of mankind. November, 1971Kenjiro SHODA
