Kyoto Institute of Technology Department of Information Science

Program Overview

We can no longer imagine our social life without ICT (Information and Communication Technology). From means of communications such as the cell phone to networks such as e-commerce, to systems that electronically control automobiles, information is the nervous system that supports all aspects of our daily lives. The essential tool for making this nerve system work is the computer or, more precisely, the fundamental hardware technologies that support the computer. Knowledge and skills concerning such software as programming language and artificial intelligence are also vital. This program teaches both computer science (CS) in which students learn the basics of handling hardware and software, and computer engineering (CE), in which students learn how to apply the theoretical knowledge they have acquired, to the creation of new systems. By creatively harnessing the nerve system of information, students in this program will contribute to the building of a better and brighter future.
