College of Informatics and Human Communication

Department of Media Informatics
Educational Objectives

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.
