Doctoral Course

Computer Science and Electrical Engineering

This field consists of four Departments, Computer Science and Communication Engineering, Frontier Technology of Energy and Devices, Human and Environmental Informatics, and Applied Mathematics, and aims to train researchers and highly specialized engineers who have highly specialized knowledge of electrical, electronic and information engineering which are form the base of high information society, global vision and opinion based on high ethics and international activity.

Department of Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Educational Goals
Information and communication technologies are the basic technologies supporting globalized and advanced information society. In this course our objectives are to train you to have high and specialized expertise, to have a deep discerning ability, and to be able to contribute to human welfare creatively and practically.
Research Goals
In this we organically combine information technologies, computer science, and communication technologies, and have main objectives of creating and developing flexible computing, which stands for introducing variability not only to software, but also to hardware and building up more flexible and more adaptable information and communication systems than before, expecting to greatly contribute to realize a society with a ubiquitous computing environment.

Department of Frontier Technology of Energy and Devices

Educational Goals
Energy engineering covers a wide area of technologies to support our infrastructures. Following the social and public demands in energy and global environment, the division provides personnel training through the research based educational programs, which cover a broad area of energy engineering including electric power systems, electronic devices, and power electronics, to foster leading engineers and researchers with advanced and integrated knowledge and skills, and also with high flexibility and creativity, to solve existing diversities of problems in the energy area. In addition, students will be able to acquire ethical insight and to study regional and international relations, required for practitioners contributing to the development of frontier technologies supporting varieties of infrastructures in the global community.
Research Goals
In response to wide and diverse demand in the field of electrical electronic devices, advanced and innovative energy and research projects are continuously performed at the division together with researchers from industries and overseas universities to achieve the contribution to the global community and also to be recognized as one of the leading international educational centers in the field of energy.

Department of Information Technology on Human and Environmental Science

Educational Goals
Information science has become the central axis of the balanced and healthy development of all environments surrounding human beings such as people, societies, and nature. In the education, it is necessary to attempt wide enhancement of the basic areas of the information, electric, and electronic science. In this division, we aim to cultivate talented individuals who can actively participate in the globalized world with a broad outlook and high ethics, being based on his/her expertise concerning not only the areas related to information, electronics, and control but also boundary and compound areas, through our multi-pronged education program on information engineering, electronics, and control engineering, etc.
Research Goals
Along with the rapid progress of information technology, a demand has arisen for the construction of human-friendly interfaces harmonizing an artificial and/or virtual environment generated by a computer with the real-world environment. For this, a realization of an intellectual integrated system is required, with the versatility and flexibility to adapt the environment. The research purpose of this division is to realize system integration by developing, evolving, and consolidating the advanced technologies in the interdisciplinary fields of information, electronics, and control, engineering, and to contribute to human welfare and development of the local and international societies.

Department of Applied Mathematics

Educational Goals
The department aims to educate students in everything from fundamental subjects to in-depth advanced theory, on each field of information mathematics, analysis of complex systems and nonlinear partial differential equations, probability and statistics, and to nurture researchers to be able to contribute to the development of mathematical science and the progress of society.
Educational Characteristics
Recently, relations between technologies and mathematics, such as cryptography and algebra, physiological system and chaos analysis, and financial engineering and stochastic analysis, have been in the limelight. We research and educate on applied mathematics (the deterministic theory of nonlinear analysis, the random theory of stochastic and statistical analysis, and the intermediate theory of chaos-fractal analysis and theory of computation) which is indispensable in solving these problems.
