Department of Information Science
In the Department of Information Science, students learn a number of elements in information science and technology, which will make them ready to respond to future technological problems in the society.
Internet, computers, mobile terminals, electronic money, etc… Current IT (information technology) has the momentum to change even the structure of society, and technological innovation continues at whirlwind speed. In the Department of Information Science, students learn a number of elements in information science and technology, which will make them ready to address future technological problems in the society. If you dream of becoming a front runner in the world of information technology, this is the right place for it.
(“Department of Information Science” is formerly “Department of Computer Science and System Analysis”.)

1.Education and Research

There are growing expectations to information science as the discipline that will support the society, which now heavily relies on information technology. To meet such expectations, the Department of Information Science cultivates human resources who will contribute to society mainly in two fields, computer science and software science. The department endeavors to train students with mathematical thinking so that they will use their skills to solve various problems in the information-oriented society.

The Department of Information Science aims to cultivate human resources who will be able to make use of their specialized knowledge in the real world. For this purpose, we emphasize repetitive learning of basic knowledge and individual guidance in specialized research. In the first year, students master the basics of programming and mathematics. In the second year, they consolidate this groundwork while setting their sights on a seminar from the third year on. In the third and fourth years, as well as acquiring advanced in-depth knowledge and skills through meticulous research guidance in small-size seminar classes under a full-time professor, students choose a topic of their preference and pursue their research by exploring various solutions.

2. Admission Policy

Based on the admission policy of the College of Humanities and Sciences, the Department of Information Science admits students who aspire to study both programming and mathematics from basics, and to acquire information skills, and on this basis to contribute to the development of the diversifying information-oriented society.
