Graduate Program in Information and Computer Engineering
Educational Objectives

We provide our students with expertise and a wide range of skills that allow them to contribute to technological innovation in the fields of information technology and network services, which are becoming increasingly important as part of social infrastructure as our information society continues to develop. Students acquire integration skills, advanced technological skills, research and development skills and the practical skills they need to apply the fundamental technology they have studied at college to a wide range of fields. They also learn about fundamental technology related to computers, software and networks, as well as advanced expertise and research and development skills with regard to information systems that integrate these elements and their construction technology. We produce outstanding engineers and researchers in information engineering who are able to play a leading role in the information and communication industry, as well as in other industries.

Educational Objectives of the Subjects of the First Doctoral Course

Introductory Subjects

In order to proceed smoothly from the undergraduate program to the first doctoral program, students acquire the fundamental skills in the basic technology of information expression, processing and transmission required to prepare for professional study. They also learn how to explain the basic mathematical theories for information science, based on mathematical, logical and physical models.

Subject

Graph and Network Theory
Ubiquitous Information Systems
Mathematics for Information Science

Fundamental Subjects

Students learn the theories and practical methods of efficient information expression, processing and transmission, using computers, software and networks, which form the basis of an information system, in order to develop advanced information systems and put them to practical use.

Subject

Information Processing Paradigms
Design and Integration for Information Systems
Pattern Analysis
Computer Graphics

Applied Subjects

Students learn advanced skills and trends with regard to information processing and information systems consisting of computers, software and networks, in order to study and develop information systems.

Subject

Interface Design
Reconfigurable Systems
Intelligent Information Processing

Module Integration Subjects

Through PBL, students acquire the practical skills to develop the three main elements of an information system: software, integrated systems and network security systems. They attend introductory lectures that give an overview of system development processes in each area, and lectures on the conditions, current situation and problems with regard to practical systems, and practice system planning and design. Also, based on the above studies, they develop, validate and evaluate specific system development projects, and evaluate other students through presentations. Thus, students acquire practical skills for developing information systems that meet the needs of the information and communication industry. They also learn to make ethical judgments, so that they can contribute to the development and maintenance of order in the information society.

Subject

Computer Software Development
Embedded Systems Development
Network and Security Development

Special Subjects

Students attend special lectures by engineers and researchers on state-of-the-art information technologies. Also, in the internship classes, they study the business content of affiliated companies and participate in an internship. In the Minor Subject Seminar, they learn about topics related to other majors in order to widen their scope of knowledge. Thus, they improve their technology application skills, communication skills and capacity for ethical judgment.

Internship B
Special Topics in Information and Computer Engineering I
Special Topics in Information and Computer Engineering II
Special Topics in Information and Computer Engineering III
Minor Subject Seminar

Professional Subjects (Master’s Research)

Professional subjects involve Master’s research studies in the laboratory for two years (four terms) of the first doctoral program. Students select their research topic according to its background, purpose, tasks, specific goals and merits. They adopt multiple methods to solve problems and verify their results, improve their programing methods, write an essay on their research results and present it to the public. Also, they improve their communication skills and capacity for ethical judgment as researchers and engineers by teaching their skills to undergraduate students.

Subject

Foundations of Information Science
Network Computing
High Performance Computing
Computer Software
Intelligent Media

Subjects of the Second Doctoral Courses

Special Research

Special research involves studying in the laboratory for three years (six terms) of the second doctoral program to complete the program at the most advanced level. Students write two or more essays on their research results, present them to the public, and guarantee their innovativeness, effectiveness and reliability. Students are encouraged to have a strong interest in and a deep understanding of the entire field of engineering, including informatics, so that they can engage positively in unknown fields of study. They acquire fundamental and professional knowledge of information and computer engineering, and discuss the innovativeness, effectiveness and reliability of their research from technical and academic perspectives. Also, they widen their perspectives to become engineers and researchers who are highly evaluated internationally.
