Information Systems Engineering Course

With the development of LSI technology, the resulting rapid development of computers and information networks, and the development of technology for using digital information, we find ourselves in an advanced information society in which everything from the lifestyles of individuals to social and industrial structures is changing greatly. With this background thought of as a new industrial revolution based on information technology (IT), new areas not bounded by conventional limits have emerged in many fields, and various researches based on creative ideas have begun to come out in a new age. With this trend toward the information society, the Information Systems Engineering Course provides education and research with the following features.

  • Aims to provide education and research opportunities for fostering engineers that look towards computerization, informatics, networking, and intelligence, as well as the realization of a future information society through their integration.
  • Organized into four fields: Mathematical Systems, Computer Science, Information Media Network, and Information Systems.
  • Covers the following areas: information mathematics on which to base academic systematization, human information processing, electronic information systems·circuit technology and software technology, human interfaces, and intelligent systems; communication networks, remote sensing, and electric wave applications as means of transmitting information; information processing technology for processing and transmitting audio·images·video and other diverse information; and technology for designing LSI devices to act as the core of electronic information devices.

As described above, our education and research are organized in such a way that they systematically incorporate technologies supporting information technology in terms of both software and hardware.

Application of information systems engineering technology

Information systems engineering technology plays an important role in a broad range of areas in society, such as computer hardware and software, cellular phones, portable music players, digital video players, satellite broadcasting, space-based communications, information search, pet robots, and encrypted communication.
