International students can also apply.

In recent years, information technology is no longer limited to computers, having broadened in application to a myriad of products including home electronics, mobile phones, autos, and more. The field is also gaining in importance as high-speed networks are linking information systems as social infrastructure.

This course trains students and engages them in research on information technologies facilitating the informatization of society in the 21st century: i.e. information processing, information systems, information networks, information media, and living assistance technologies. Through this curriculum, we work to educate sophisticated engineering capable of a high level of creativity and problem-solving abilities able to anticipate changes in the informatization of society—that is leaders in their fields.
