For this site’s pages in Chinese and Korean, we have been using automatic machine translation services. The resulting translation depend on the translation system that performs automatic translation. Depending on the situation, there may be some inaccurate or unintended mistranslations as a result. So, we cannot guarantee the results of using these translation services. We hope that when you use these services you will understand that automatic translation is not 100% accurate.

Consisting of five courses, the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology enables students to strengthen their expertise and acquire extensive knowledge through inter-divisional collaboration.

Course of Computer Science and Information Technology

The term computer no longer refers exclusively to PCs. Computer technology is now ubiquitous, with usage for smartphones and websites as well as applications in intelligent mechanisms for automobiles and consumer electronics, human support systems in medical and health fields, robots to help enhance societal safety and wellbeing, and sensors for energy and environmental monitoring. These applications will lead to the development of new social and economic systems, making full use of the retrieval, integration, recognition, learning and discovery of diverse information and useful knowledge.
The course of Computer Science and Information Technology focuses on education, research and development, combining scientific and engineering methods in software technology and artificial intelligence with their foundations in mathematical science and advanced information infrastructure. The Division encourages comprehensive, systematic learning in the fields of synergetic information engineering, knowledge software science, mathematical science and large-scale information systems in order to develop internationally-minded professionals capable of applying their scientific understanding and engineering methods to every human endeavor to find solutions to various information system challenges in the society.
