Development Goal

In the Graduate School of Information Science and Engineering, our aim is to train researchers and professionals to possess not only a high level of theory and skills in the specialist fields of information science and engineering, ranging from the basic skills of information processing and network and system development to the cutting-edge fields of information media, applied technology relating to people and intelligence, and information technology, but also possess the ability to make creative discoveries.

Educational Objectives

Based on our human resource development goals, our master's program aims at fostering individuals who:

  1. Possess specific knowledge and research capabilities in natural sciences or other specialized field.
  2. Possess analytical writing, presentation and communication skills.
  3. Are conscientious researchers or engineers that possess the ability to frame problems and formulate solutions in their fields.
  4. Can function as members of international society based on a global perspective and an understanding of different cultures.
Admission Policy

In the Master’s Program, in light of our development goal, we invite applications from students who possess an awareness of issues in the fields of information systems and information communications, which form the foundations supporting a sophisticated information society, or the fields of media information and intelligent information concerning people and intelligence, which form the foundations of information science and technology, and who are interested in building a better society in future with a clear sense of purpose and information ethics based on this perspective.

  1. Individuals who possess the basic academic abilities required to engage in research as part of the Master’s Program.
  2. Individuals who are strongly motivated to present their own opinions and their research results both inside and outside the university.
  3. Individuals capable of engaging in collaborative research in groups.
  4. Individuals who are strongly motivated to improve their problem-solving skills and ability to make creative discoveries.
Curriculum Policy

In the master’s program, in accord with the educational objectives, subjects have been established as Common Subjects, Major Subjects, and Research Subjects exploring fundamental skills such as information processing, networks, and system building, as well as specialized fields such as information media, people and intelligence. The educational objectives are met by a curriculum where students can learn sound knowledge and research methods systematically through comprehensive and continued enrollment in the subjects. The definition of each subject type is as follows.

  1. Common Subjects: Subjects carefully selected to make it possible to gain sound knowledge in the natural sciences as well as knowledge in technology management and intellectual property management.
  2. Major Subjects: Subjects that make it possible to strengthen abilities to carry out research as well as sound knowledge in a specialized field.
  3. Research Subjects: Subjects that make it possible to gain substantial research abilities in a specialized field, and improve presentation and communication skills by expressing research logically. Furthermore the subjects increase awareness of the responsibilities of researchers and engineers, and at the same time, improve abilities to pose and solve problems in specialized fields.
Degree Policy

In the master’s program, a master’s degree will be conferred upon the following persons, in accord with the educational objectives. Furthermore, degree recipients must have obtained credits designated by the Graduate School of Information Science and Engineering and have passed an evaluation of their academic dissertation based on dissertation evaluation standards for the master’s program.

  1. Those who possess sound knowledge and research abilities in the natural sciences and specialized fields.
  2. Those who possess logical writing skills, presentation skills, and communication skills.
  3. Those who, in addition to being aware of their responsibility as a researcher/engineer, possess the ability to pose and solve problems in specialized fields.
