Objectives in Education and Research
Today, it is impossible to construct advanced and rich social systems without using the technologies in electrical, electronic, and communications engineering, and computer science. In order to respond to the social demand for such technologies as an industrial foundation, the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Course aims to nurture outstanding engineers and researchers with the following points set as its main educational goals: 1. Acquisition of a high level of specialized knowledge and the development of applied skills; 2. Discovery of problems and the development as well as training of problem-solving skills; 3. Development of presentation and communication skills; 4. Development of cooperativeness and nurturing a sense of ethics.
In order to accomplish the goals described above, the areas taught in this course extensively cover subjects in electrical engineering and computer science, enabling the course structure to deal with most of the issues and problems in that area. In addition, the course has been developed to be responsive to innovative and original themes, future development of which is expected.
Actually, this course has been formed by uniting different electronic-related departments and faculties to realize the graduate level education, which goes far beyond the basic framework of faculties and departments. Furthermore, this course is divided into eight specialized fields - namely, (1) Materials and Devices, (2) Circuit and Control, (3) Power and Energy, (4) Communication, (5) Information, (6) Informational Science, (7) Robotics and Mechatronics, and (8) Bioengineering – and has an extensive number, over 50, of teaching staff who form the education and research system to accommodate students requests.
