The Faculty of Informatics develops IT technicians who will play a central role in the realization of an advanced information society. As such, students at the department will systematically gain expertise on top of a foundation of basic academic skills such as mathematics and programming. Students will also gain the ability to independently identify and solve problems through experiments and exercises. The faculty seeks students who tackle issues from a perspective backed by knowledge in informatics, are interested in the mechanisms behind various information and communications systems as well as the many challenges facing our society, are capable of proactively engaging in their studies on their own initiative, and are also willing to play active roles on the global stage.
The Department of Information and Communications Engineering develops people with comprehensive basic academic skills, the ability to flexibly apply these skills, and the creativity needed to someday work in the fields of information and communications, information media, and information devices. As such, students in the department develop the academic skills needed in the above three fields before undergoing a highly specialized education. The department seeks students interested in information technology—even in the most general sense—and who dream of having an interesting career related to the field.
The Department of Computer Science develops technicians who are capable of contributing to a comfortable living environment for all of humankind through the use of computers, which have become an indispensable part of our modern information-based society. The department seeks students interested in the mechanisms and basic technologies behind computers, software, computer applications, information security and other related fields, who have basic skills in mathematics, and are motivated to play active roles on the international stage.
The Department of Information Design has designated the fields of content design, human information processing and knowledge information processing as its three pillars. The department develops technicians capable of understanding digital content creation techniques, properly analyzing human behavior, and accurately designing/developing efficient and effective ways to utilize information. It seeks students who have strong communication skills, basic skills in mathematics and the ability to think flexibly, who are interested in and passionate about the department’s three central fields, and are motivated to acquire knowledge and skills.
The Department of Information Systems and Applied Mathematics develops technicians capable of understanding corporate information systems and social information systems, and of planning, building and operating the information systems that companies and society require. The department strives to cultivate technicians who employ mathematical thinking to master the practical data science skills needed to work with big data, and who are capable of driving corporate strategies, marketing strategies and corporate information strategies. The department wants students who dream of becoming pioneers in an ever-evolving information society and are interested in the field of applied mathematics as a means to achieve that dream.
