The Faculty of Engineering was established in 1949, growing out of the former Kobe Technical College, which was originally established in 1921. Since then, the Faculty has contributed to the development of modern industrial society in the latter half of the 20th Century through its education and research.

The aim of the Faculty in the new millennium is to educate future researchers and engineers to be able to contribute to the welfare of humankind through cutting-edge technologies.

The Faculty now has six departments: Architecture, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Science and Engineering, and Computer and Systems Engineering, each of which consists of several divisions dedicated to specific purposes of education and research. Approximately two-thirds of students continue on to Master's program for higher education.
