Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering
The Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering are known for their distinctive style of education and research in a cutting-edge, multidisciplinary field that integrates systems, information, and society. We take pride in of our wealth of achievements, and believe that our research and development outcomes in the field deserve attention, since they serve as the bedrock of social infrastructure and support our daily lives and economic activities.
The 5th Science and Technology Basic Plan, which has been implemented over five years since 2016, recognizes the arrival of an era of revolutionary change, when technological evolution in areas including information and communications technology (ICT) drastically changes the social and economic structure. The plan also advocates the realization of a super-smart society (Society 5.0), where fusion of cyberspace and physical space may bring greater prosperity. Moreover, it aims to promote industry‒academia collaboration in order to facilitate the cultivation and recruitment of engineers who will be responsible for future innovation in science and technology. This is precisely the vision we share. Our mission is to contribute to the promotion of art and science, as well as develop human resources with global perspectives, flexible thinking, originality, and creativity. Such personnel are indispensable to solving real-world problems, which are often complicated and challenging, and development of such talent eventually produces potential leaders capable of displaying international initiative.
Today’s social problems, regional challenges, and economic activities are highly sophisticated. Accordingly, our degree programs are expected to play an ever-expanding role in solving such problems. To enhance graduate education, we have started employing proposal-based programs for education and research including recurrent education of mid-career students. Furthermore, we will always remain open to attracting highly motivated domestic and foreign students, and are committed to training them as prospective global leaders.
