Learn both the theoretical and practical aspects of
information processing technologies
Mathematical information engineering is a discipline that deals with a variety of information technologies, such as computer networks, computer graphics, and computer databases. Mathematical information engineering allows people to solve problems that to date have been difficult or impossible to tackle through engineering techniques alone. It might not be an exaggeration to say that mathematical information engineering today plays a central role in all fields of engineering. Mathematical information engineering requires a wide range of technically-oriented theoretical and developmental skills in order to expand, elaborate, and create new technologies, as well as the practical systems development skills to organize and manage them. At the Department of Mathematical Information Engineering, we aim to equip students with such skills in order to develop them as engineers who are able to thrive in today’s advanced information society.
The curriculum is divided into three courses: the Mathematical Engineering Course, the Media Design
Course, and the Computer Science and Engineering Course. In each, we place an emphasis on the development of practical skills as well as stressing fundamental skills and problem-solving abilities.
Even at companies that exist outside the information sector, there is a high demand for information-focused engineers, a situation giving our graduates the opportunity for employment at a wide variety of companies.
Mathematical Engineering Course
Through performing a series of practical exercises, students acquire fundamental skills in mathematical engineering with the aim of developing into information-technology engineers.
Media Design Course
Rather than focusing only on the conventional techniques for analyzing and processing information, students learn alternative techniques of expressing information in an appealing way.
Computer Science and Engineering Course (JABEE)
This course narrows its focus to information engineering with the primary purpose of imparting a computer education that combines many practical aspects.
