Top > Departments
The School, established in April 1994, has three departments:
1. Mathematical and Computing Sciences
Contemporary society is said to have entered an information-intensive age,
and many different types of information have had a profound impact on every aspect of our lives.
Using scientific approaches, we undertake research and teaching on methods of handling this information.
Specifically, we explore approaches driven by the use of computers in new areas of mathematics,
approaches based on mathematical models that use operations research and statistics to solve real-world problems,
and approaches employing mathematics and logic that use computer science,
which is to say information processing, as a "calculation" tool, and we perform research and teaching on methods of designing computer systems to actually put these approaches into practice.
2. Computer Science
Computer systems penetrate into all aspects of highly developed information-oriented society
and provide an infrastructure for advanced information technology.
They therefore must be adaptable, efficient and reliable,
and also must have a flexible interface for effective communication with humans.
The Department of Computer Science aims at exploring and developing such key areas
that support highly sophisticated computer systems through research and education.
3. Mechanical and Environmental Informatics
The Department of Mechanical and Environmental Informatics is a pioneering department that aims to expand and deepen
the field of information science and engineering in many aspects with the keyword of "environment."
Our educational and research activities are dedicated to open a new horizon in
mechanical and environmental informatics and graduates will demonstrate competency with broad perspective
in the rapidly changing society thereby.
