Educational Objectives of the College of Informatics and Human Communication and its Departments

In today's constantly developing advanced information society, engineers are required to proactively use information technologies to identify problems and propose solutions. We regard "information" as a means of communication among "things, people and society", and encourage our students to study both arts and sciences extensively, including the fields of media, psychology and management. We train our students to become flexible, creative engineers who are able to use their knowledge and skills to benefit society.
Keywords: use of information technology, information communication technology, information design, integration of arts and sciences (media, psychology, management)

Department Objectives
Media Informatics

We are now living in a ubiquitous network society with information communication via all kinds of media. We teach our students about the latest information technology such as CG, mobile technology and network security, and help them to gain the sensitivity required for the creation of digital content such as visual images, music and websites, as well as the planning and implementation skills to integrate both of these in a practical manner. We produce flexible, creative engineers who are able to develop and operate digital content, systems and services in every field of society.

Keywords: information technology, content design, integration of logic and sensitivity, multimedia


Management Systems

In today’s globalized and highly advanced information society, engineers in every field are required to have skills in both management and information technology. We teach our students the basic skills and mindset to launch a business that is beneficial to society, the knowledge and skills for efficient management of businesses and organizations, and management and information technology skills. Thus, we produce human resources who are able to improve people’s lives with their creativity and implementation skills.

Keywords: marketing, management strategy, management, technology for using information


Psychological Informatics

The 21st century is said to be “the age of the mind”, since people are becoming more interested in their minds. We teach our students to understand, measure and evaluate people’s minds from a scientific perspective, and build appropriate relationships between people and things, people and society, and people and people. Thus, we produce human resources who are able to integrate psychology and information technology in order to propose and develop safe, comfortable and pleasant products and systems, as well as services developed with consideration of people’s minds.

Keywords: nature of the mind, psychological measurement and evaluation technology, recognition and sensitivity, human-friendliness
