Nurturing the future engineers and researchers who unlock the unlimited potential of information and communication with practical skills and imagination
With the progress of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), represented by the Internet and wireless information communication technology, we are currently undergoing a rapid transformation to an advanced information society. ICT is supported by the academic fields of Computer Science and Systems Engineering, Communication Engineering, and Electronic Engineering. With those three fields as a foundation, this department aims to nurture engineers who possess both the necessary software skills for intelligent information systems, and the hardware skills indispensable for increasing the speed of those systems, are able to view problems from the perspective of the users, and have a global field of vision.
After joining the company, I have been involved in updating programs and performing Internet version updates. I am currently responsible for server and terminal settings. As this is still my first year, I am still gaining a wide range of experiences at work, learning our customers’ PC environment, and the overall flow of my duties. While I am only performing the work that I am assigned, I feel satisfaction in improving the efficiency of our customers’work through the settings for which I was responsible. I would like to cherish the “sincerity and consideration (omoiyari)” of our company, and eventually engage in large-scale infrastructure composition and make proposals.
Nurturing students to become engineers who create engineering value through a combination of knowledge that traverses the field and technological skills
The information systems of an advanced information society are considered vital not just as a network foundation, but in terms of their relationship to people, the environment and manufactured goods, and as the foundation for realizing the manufacturing of products more conveniently and more gentle on humans and the environment. In the Department of Systems Engineering, students will study the information communication that is indispensable to the development of computers, mechanical engineering for the production of goods that place high value on mechanics, as well as interface engineering which connects people with machines and computers. We aim to nurture professionals who possess the sense of a cross disciplinary engineer, and who can proactively participate in the creation of new engineering value.
I am developing the ASICs (integrated circuits) mounted in our company’s printers. New technical challenges are always arising in ASIC development due to the adoption of new technologies or design methodologies. I feel accomplishment when we manage to solve a problem through the sharing of ideas. I feel great satisfaction in improving the functionality of our products through development.
Nurturing future engineers who possess design skills based on a ‘human-centric design ideology’
When a person drives an automobile, they recognize the information of their surroundings and make decisions to operate the vehicle. There are now practical applications of systems, which support that series of actions. The development of devices and systems that adapt to the dynamic characteristics of humans is becoming vital. The Department of Human Information Engineering aims to nurture professionals who are able to design “objects” and “services” that match the needs and characteristics of their users based on a philosophy of “human-centric design ideology.”
I am responsible for designing new sports shoe products. I feel great responsibility and satisfaction in the fact that my ideas are reflected in the product, and those products are delivered to customers all around the world. I would like to be responsible for the development and design of shoes provided to top athletes in the future. I would like to compete alongside the players in global tournaments such as the Olympics and World Cup.
