Master broad technologies around computers
Learn technologies in various fields, including hardware and software development, with a tool called a computer See the site for Information Science students and their parents (updated as needed)
Purpose of the discipline
The educational goal of the department of Information Science is to develop human resources who can acquire basic techniques of computer science and play an important role utilizing the techniques in a wide range of fields including development or application of information technologies, or even monozukuri (manufacturing and making) and creative expression.
We offer three programs; “Program in Computer Science” that cultivates an IT professional of programming and software development, “Program in Applied Computer Systems” that nurture practical skills in the field of embedded system technologies and network application technologies, and “Program in Digital Design and Graphics” that develops a hybrid engineer with knowledge of programing in relation to digital representation.
1. Acquire and master techniques of design and development
Information technology is utilized in cellar phones, non-contact IC cards and even in Hollywood movies. You pursue the potential of the technology through designing and developing hardware and software with a tool called a computer. You can also acquire techniques to master a computer and its associated equipment.
Three unique programs that help you to find your career pathway
The department offers three programs to approach to the information society; “Program in Computer Science” to think and research about the computer science that is a foundation of the society, “Program in Applied Computer Systems” to acquire information processing techniques, and “Program in Digital Design and Graphics” to pursue the potential of information technology.
Taste all programs during the first year study. You have time to consider and choose your major
You choose one of the three programs as your major when the second year study begins. With this way, first year students take common subjects crossing over these three programs. Lectures from each program interpret their expertized field. You have enough time to consider your most interesting field and choose a program as your major by those lectures and experiences in the first year study.
We offer three programs; to design and develop hardware and software with a computer as a tool, to pursue the potential of the technologies, or to acquire techniques to master a computer and its associated equipment. To solve the problem of hesitating to choose a major and its pathway from such a broad range of study fields, we have changed the rule that students are required to choose a program when the second year study begins, that applied to students who enrolled in 2010 onward. Lecturers from each program interpret their expertise during the first year study in common subjects crossing over these three programs. You can choose a program with your most interesting field by those lectures and experiences in the first year study.
Program in Computer Science
You learn to deepen the requisite computing technology in the modern society. The knowledge is deepened by the curriculum with experiments and practical sessions. The aim of the program is to foster an IT professional with knowledge of cutting-edge fields.
Program in Applied Computer Systems
Computer technology is essential in various fields including industrials, logistics, and medical services. In this program, you learn software technology and system designs focusing on the network field and the computer system field.
Program in Digital Design and Graphics
You refine a skill of imagination and acquire an ability of spawning the requisite cutting-edge techniques for the new era, mainly in product design, films, and a boundary area of art and engineering. You refine sensitivities including how you form, see and feel, and then express them by the digital technologies.
