The department of Mechanical Engineering and Precision Mechanics
A scale model of the main (common building of former depts. of Mechanical and Civil Engineering ( the southern front)) used between 1898 and 1962. Reduced scale, 1:40.
When Kyoto Imperial University was founded, the first established Department was Mechanical Engineering. This department purchased educational models, and have effectively preserved them.
The models of machine mechanism are very rare and do not exist in other universities. They are precious collections through which we can understand educational circumstances at the advent of the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering.
