Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering is devoted to such themes as "pursuit of creative process through intelligence" and "creation of the next generation intellectualized information systems". The department aims at one of the newest academic disciplines by integrating not only the fields of computer science and information technology, but also various scientific and engineering fields including electronics, mechanical engineering, life science, social science, and so on. The multi-disciplinary nature of computer science and systems engineering offers an exciting challenge for students thinking of embarking on a career in almost all scientific and engineering fields as well as information technology fields in advanced and more computerized society.
The course structure aims at the wide and deep exploration of education and research relating to computer science and systems engineering. The undergraduate program structure of the department is carefully designed for students to study multi-disciplinary major courses as well as liberal arts. Freshman students start fundamental courses of computer science and systems engineering, such as mathematics, physics, logic circuits, and computer engineering. Sophomore students study both the fundamental and advanced courses including programming languages, spectrum analysis, and system analysis. Further junior students mainly take advanced such as database systems, sensing technology, and robotics. All senior students are engaged in research projects. Four-year Bachelor's degrees are awarded to undergraduate students. With respect to this department, a new Graduate School of System Informatics is established in 2010 with three departments. Master's and Doctoral degrees are awarded to students who have successfully completed the required subjects of an authorized graduate program. We have accepted many foreign students and young researchers from more than twenty countries around the world.
