The Faculty of Engineering, Mie University was established in April 1969. Therefore, it has a rather short history. The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering with full enrollment of 110 students was initiated in April 1991 by the merger and reorganization of the Department of Electrical Engineering, established in 1969, and the Department of Electronic Engineering, established in 1975. Over 30% of the graduate students continue on to the masters course each year. In the 1995 academic year, the doctoral course was established in the Faculty of Engineering. With this reorganization, the conventional minor professorial chair system (9 minor chairs) was changed to 3 major professorial chair system. The major chairs are: the Laboratories of Electrical Systems Engineering, the Information and Communication Systems, and the Electronic Material Science and Technology. Hori Research Laboratory is part of the Laboratories of Electrical System Engineering. The Laboratory consists of Professor Takamasa Hori, Associate Professor Muneaki Ishida, Assistant Professor Satoshi Komada, Engineer Masaru Nakamura, 2 doctoral students, 9 masters course students, 12 undergraduates, and one researcher. T. Hori joined the lab from Hitachi Research Lab. of Hitachi, Ltd. in January 1987, M. Ishida from Nagoya University in June 1987, and S. Komada from Keio University in April 1989. Major research themes of the lab are as follows:
