What are the goals of the Course of Systems Science and Informatics?
The study of systems science and informatics essentially involves information science and technology supporting the realization of various systems. Specifically, it is an academic field in which elemental technology in disciplines such as electrical, electronics, control, information and mechanical engineering are combined for the design of integrated systems. The Course of Systems Science and Informatics aims to create unique new system architecture technology through the fusion of electrical engineering, information science and system science based on the rigorous promotion of basic and applied research.
What education is provided?
The Course of Systems Science and Informatics hosts research projects to be tackled jointly by the laboratories in the Course, thereby providing students with a forum for discussing their problems and ideas and enabling them to consult with professors about them. In addition, practical education is provided on design, development and manufacturing by establishing collaborative research groups with businesses and research institutions.
Systems control, Digital geometry processing, Human-centric systems, Informatics for systems and environment, Electric Energy conversion, Electric power systems, Advanced applied electromagnetics, Intelligent systems, Informatics for remote sensing, Informatics for digital human modeling
What research activities are under way?
Research and development are under way on technologies for creating social infrastructure systems, deploying systems on industry, and integrating various systems by using system methodologies, such as design, modeling, planning, simulation, control and sensing, as well as by basing both research and education on the system system methodologies. A joint research project in field informatics is also being promoted, in which real fields such as nature, artifacts and society are integrated with the cyber field.
Robots, Mechatronics systems, Production and control systems, Hardware systems, Electrical energy systems, Power electronics, Analysis, simulation, design, optimization and evaluation of real-world systems
What characteristics do the research groups have?
The Course of Systems Science and Informatics comprises two core research groups, two collaborative research groups. In the Research Group of Informatics for System Creation, research and development is taking place on basic theories for creating necessary systems and on methodologies for developing, operating and evaluating the systems. Research and development programs at the Research Group of Informatics for System Synthesis are based on information science designed to achieve a qualitative change
