Monozukuri Laboratory Courses (2017)

Various laboratory and training courses related to "monozukuri", i.e. device and technology development and manufacturing, are available for LGS students. The tuition fee will be supported by the LGS program. English instruction is available on best-effort basis unless otherwise noted. Your participation is welcome. Please take the annual safety course held by your own department/division before participating in a monozukuri laboratory course.

Electronic circuit courses

Soldering and Assembling Course

Soldering is indispensable for manufacturing an electronics device. Many students learn soldering by watching others and the reliability of their skill seems to be questionable in many cases. The National Trade Skill Test for "Electronic Equipment Assembling (EEA), Grade 3" is known to be a good measure for having reliable soldering skill. This course will instruct you the knowledge and technical skill required for Grade 3 of the EEA.
  • Instructors: Yasusuke Kojima, Yasushi Maruyama, Takayuki Yamazaki. (Technical Center of Nagoya University)
  • Date: May 31st and June 1st, 2017
  • Place: Room 209 and workshop, Research Institute Bldg. I, Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE)
  • Registration deadline: 17:00, May 25th, 2017
For details of the course and registration, please see the instruction.

Printed Wiring Board Production Course

Ability to produce a printed wiring board (PWB) is strongly demanded in manufacturing electronic devices in general. The ability can be significantly improved by learning how to use a PWB milling machine. It can produce various wiring patterns on a board, and is a powerful tool to easily prototype a small-scale circuit, produce a circuit board that has surface-mounted integration circuits and so on. In this course, you will make an operational amplifier of your own manufacturing, focusing on learning how to design a wiring pattern and how to operate a PWB milling machine.
  • Instructors: Tetsuya Kawabata, Takaaki Fujimori, Takumi Adachi. (Technical Center of Nagoya University)
  • Date: June 13th and either day of 14th-16th, 2017
  • Place: Room 209 and 101 (workshop), Research Institute Bldg. I, Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE)
  • Registration deadline: 17:00, June 6th, 2017
For details of the course and registration, please see the instruction.

Electronic Circuit Manufacturing Course

In this course, you will learn the basics of electronic circuit, through designing and implementing the analog circuit for the "theremin", an electronic musical instrument. In the circuit designing, you will learn how to use a CAD for designing electronic systems (OrCAD 16.6). The CAD is a tool to draw a circuit diagram and to verify the operation using a simulator, giving a way to design an electronic circuit efficiently. In the circuit implementation, you will learn the electrical safety and soldering skill. Some basics of pattern designing for a circuit board can be also mentioned if desired. The basics of electronic circuit obtained in this course will be very useful not only in manufacturing and repairing experimental apparatus and measurement instruments, but also in using them correctly and safely.
  • Instructors: Kazuya Itoh, Kota Okada (Technical Center of Nagoya University)
  • Date: July 4th, 5th and 11th, 2017 (13:30-16:30 on all days)
  • Place: Science Bldg. E, Room E-B122 (TBC)
  • Registration deadline: 17:00, June 23rd, 2017
For details of the course and registration, please see the instruction.

FPGA Training Course (to be held in Japanese)

This is a training course for beginners to learn how to use the necessary tools for development of an FPGA circuit. You will actually use an FPGA circuit in the course, intending that you will be able to develop an FPGA circuit on your own after taking the course. The course is cooperated with Open-It.
  • Instructors: Tomohisa Uchida (KEK), Kazuya Itoh (Technical Center of Nagoya University)
  • Date: August 8th and 9th, 2017
  • Place: Bldg. C, Room C517, Department of Sceience
  • Registration deadline: 17:00, July 28th, 2017
Details of the course and registration are available here (Japanese only).

English instruction can be available in the course on best-effort basis. If you are interested in the course and need English information of the course and registration, please contact here.

ASIC Training Course (to be held in Japanese)

This is a training course for beginners to get familiar in lectures with the analog circuit design and semiconductor processes and to learn in computer exercises the basic knowledge and tool usage for ASIC development. The course is cooperated with Open-It.
  • Instructors: Sho-ichi Shimazaki, Kazuya Tauchi, Manobu Tanaka, Yo-ichi Fujita (KEK), Kazuya Itoh (Technical Center of Nagoya University)
  • Date: September 5th-7th, 2017
  • Place: Bldg. C, Room C517, Department of Sceience
  • Registration deadline: 17:00, August 25th, 2017
Details of the course and registration are available here (Japanese only).

English instruction can be available in the course on best-effort basis. If you are interested in the course and need English information of the course and registration, please contact here.

Machining and Mechatronics Courses

Monozukuri Practical Course (to be held in Japanese)

Three one-day courses will be held with the lectures of basic and practical contents along with the practice and demonstration for good understanding and learning. The number of participants are somewhat limited due to the careful instruction. The instructors are active in the forefront of precision manufacturing. The courses are cooperated with the Tokai Branches of the Japan Society for Precision Engineering and the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.

If you registered to a course and did not show up in it, the tuition fee (25,000 yen) will be charged to the research group you belong, not to this LGS Program. Needless to say, when you register to a course, you should make sure your availability to the course and get your supervisor's approval.
