Introduction to the School

In the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering

A pioneer in electrical and computer engineering that is accessible to the community and the world

The "School of Electrical and Computer Engineering" aims to become a stronghold of knowledge that is accessible to the community and the world. The school centers its efforts on energy and electronics at which we are at the leading edge through the application of advanced science, new trends in information science where the school is breaking new ground with computers, and advanced biological science in which the school is a leader in the application of information technology.

Developing human resources that can contribute to an advanced information society with creativity that is oriented toward the future

In modern society, the three highly interrelated fields of electronics, IT, and energy play a huge role. By teaching these fields systematically, the School aims to foster engineers and researchers whose creativity is oriented toward the future, and who can contribute to tomorrow's advanced information society.

The School offers three courses, namely, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Information Systems Engineering, and Bioinformatics. Freshmen can select which of these courses to take in their sophomore year.

Freshmen take basic, required core subjects, common throughout the School and then, in their sophomore year, select from these three courses according to their specialist interests, moving from basic to applied study, systematically.

Educational content of each course and the human resources it is designed to foster

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course

Basic theories and applied subjects in the fields of electricity, control, information and communications, semiconductor and electronic parts, computers, and so on; circuit and equipment experiments; and practical computer training

→ Fostering a rich creativity in a wide range of fields

Information Systems Engineering Course

Study of information theories and computers based on mathematics; programming techniques and integrated-circuit design; and practical, systematic training in computers from the first semester

→ People who are capable of identifying issues in the information society and then going on to solve them

Bioinformatics Course

Intensive and systematic study of the basic theories and techniques of molecular biology, on which bioinformatics is based, computer technology, genetic information processing, and so on

→ People who seek out challenges and who wish to play a role in the future of bioinformatics
