Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering
Admission Policy - What we look for in students -
The Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering offers courses in the field of information technology to enable students to configure and use advanced information platforms. Information processing technology is evolving rapidly and continuing to expand in application and scope. Capable engineers in this field, in particular software engineers, are in high demand.
We are looking for students who are:
- motivated to contribute to the happiness of mankind and the development of society through computer sciences;
- creative thinkers who can develop formulas themselves, and not just memorizers;
- accomplished in the basics required for computer sciences such as mathematics, physics, and English, and have acquired excellent communication skills;
- motivated to pursue their studies toward well defined objectives.
Introducing our Research
Basic Computer Science and Systems Engineering
With the rapid development of an information-oriented society and distributed processing, we offer programs on theoretical computer science, parallel and distributed processing, mathematical modeling of the brain, high-performance computation, functional programming, and computer graphics. We aim to develop highly skilled information processing engineers who can create new information processing techniques to meet the needs of today’s world.
Industrial Information Systems
For students aiming to become information processing engineers, we offer programs in information networks, embedded software, production information systems, network security, software engineering, optimum combinations based on mathematical methods and algorithm theories. This will give them the ability to design creative systems and develop the insight and ability to make models of indispensable systems required in industry for developing large scale information systems.
Key Research Areas
Parallel and distributed processing
Total calculating time can be shortened by network-linked computers, allowing several computers to work on tabulating one equation simultaneously. In this way linked computers can complete calculations that formerly would have required months for one computer to accomplish.
Research on sensor networks
Research is being carried out on sensor networks, which are formed by small, independent wireless sensors connected by networks, in order to configure highly reliable networks and develop applications for welfare, disaster prevention, agriculture, and the environment. The photograph shows our research on comprehending sensor information using augmented reality aimed at applications for sensor networks in agricultural areas.
Mathematical modelling of the brain
Using mathematical modeling, research is being performed on neuron pathways in the brain to discover how the brain processes information.
Research on embedded software
Research to improve the quality and reliability of embedded software is being undertaken in order to advance the technology of such products as household appliances, mobile phones, gaming machines, and automobiles, all of which require extremely complex processing that is hidden within their seemingly simple exteriors.
