[Course Module System]
In the Graduate School of Computer Science and Systems Engineering, more than 40 modules, consisting of three to four subjects each, are prepared for students to acquire high-level expertise in a systematic fashion. We have established courses in media processing, LSI, robots, digital engineering, life sciences and bioinformatics, allowing students to choose subjects by combining the modules based on their career plans. This educational system was selected for the Support Program for Graduate School Education Reform of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology from 2007 to 2009, and has been used since then.
[ICT Architect Development Course]
“The ICT Architect Development Course Leading the Next Generation Information-Oriented Society”, established by the Graduate School of Computer Science and Systems Engineering of Kyutech in cooperation with the Graduate School and Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering of Kyushu University, was selected as one of six locations in Japan. The School has continued this program as the “ICT Architect Development Course,” where its students receive an education on advanced information technology.
The Graduate School of Computer Science and Systems Engineering has three departments, of two are directly connected with departments in the School of Computer Science and Systems Engineering (Department of Information Science and Department of Information Systems), and one with the Department of Creative Informatics. They pursue education and research under the theme of creating paths to solve actual problems found in industry with solutions, based on the latest information technology.
Department of Advanced Informatics
The Department of Advanced Informatics is designed to engineers who can develop systems as a base of information science and information engineering, including core computer science and ICT technologies, and advanced elemental technologies, with knowledge of software, hardware and network as the foundation of information systems. The department consists of two divisions: the Division of Artificial Intelligence to study computer science and information system development; and the Division of Computer Science and Electronics to study electronics, computers, LSI, and information and communication networks.
Department of Interdisciplinary Informatics
At the Department of Interdisciplinary Informatics, the students learn system development based on ICT technology, digital engineering, robotics, development of information systems related to biotechnology, and applied technologies such as bioinformatics. The department is designed to produce engineers pioneering a new interdisciplinary area, based on information science and information engineering. The department consists of three divisions: the Division of Systems Design and Informatics to study system development based on ICT technology; the Division of Mechanical Information Science and Technology to study digital engineering and robotics; and the Division of Bioscience and Bioinformatics to study development of information systems related to biotechnology and bioinformatics.
Department of Creative Informatics
The Department of Creative Informatics is designed to produce engineers who can find problems to be solved occurring in industry due to the change in social conditions, have knowledge for practical resolution and realization by means of the latest information technology, promote industry-academia collaboration based on social needs, and activate society with information technologies. The Division of Creative Informatics is composed of full-time professors and other faculty of five divisions, each corresponding to five departments of the School of Engineering, KYUTECH.
Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering
The Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering is designed to produce global leaders who can coordinate cutting-edge information engineering approaches, by developing cutting-edge base technologies useful for the development of information technologies, building innovative information systems that can cope with various problems caused by combination of technologies in various scientific areas, and reforming the structure of society using future information technologies, based on high expertise on information science and information engineering. The interdisciplinary department is beyond the framework of conventional departments or narrow research areas, and consists of six divisions of three departments of Master’s Course.
