Current academic frameworks cannot handle simultaneous optimizing problems related to multiple disciplines because they are significantly specialized and subdivided in each field in accordance with remarkable growth of scale and complexity of artifacts and with sophistication of science and technology. This center aims to develop a new academic framework consisting of the multidisciplinary science solving such interdisciplinary problems and of the design science applying the multidisciplinary science to creation of artifacts. Three methodologies used here, i.e., multiscale, multiphysics and multiaspect (see the following figure), integrate science and design that can be common bases for multiple disciplines.

Key words

  • Multiscale
  • Multiphysics
  • Multiaspect
