Message from the Dean

Since the industrial revolution started by the advent of the steam engine in the late 18th century, many manufacturing businesses have appeared and developed with time to provide a wealthier life for human beings. In 1907, Henry Ford in America succeeded in the mass production of automobiles for the first time, and in 1903 the powered aircraft developed by the Wright brothers achieved the first manned flight in the world. These successes have opened the door to the new era of long-distance and mass transportation.
