Engineering research often requires large-scale and practical experiments and simulations. At LEAP, practical research that cannot be conducted on Komaba II Campus is pursued, using large-scale facilities such as large vibration stands, ocean engineering basin, and experimental fields. Also, comprehensive and innovative research is conducted fusing advanced data analysis, modeling, simulations, etc. There is enhanced collaboration with other departments and organizations on Kashiwa and Kashiwa II Campus, enabling a wide range of research. At present, 5 IIS laboratories stationed in Kashiwa engage in the management and operation of LEAP, led by Director NIINO, Toshiki.
