Cyber Informatics(CI)

 This Program develops men and women who can design the upcoming ubiquitous network society and those who can create the platform that provides the infrastructure. These are the people who create new trends in the IT field. The IT specialists that this Program aims to develop are:

  • Professional engineers capable of joining a business and contributing immediately
  • Researchers and innovators with bold technological vision
  • Venture entrepreneurs who understand the technology
  • CIOs and designers who deploy and use the technology

The Program focuses on "Novel Computing and Communication Systems" that go beyond the framework of existing computer science. The core areas of the Program are:

  • Internet Systems and Applications
  • Ubiquitous Computing and Networking
  • System Software
  • Knowledge and Information Systems
  • Information Security
  • Interaction Design
  • Enterprise Computing

Each area has systematic courses. Through taking these courses and pursuing advanced, practical research in Project Courses, students acquire the ability to practice IT and resolve problems in the real world.

Designing the Ubiquitous Network Society

Tatsuya Hagino
Professor, Program Chairperson

The computer, the Internet, and other digital technology developed in the 20th century now provide the social infrastructure that supports people and society in the 21st century. The CI Program conducts a broad range of research activities aimed at creating a future society that is affluent, safe and fun: research into the technology and methods required for network construction and the digital processing of information, including numerical expression, storage, transmission, concealment, and restoration; research into the new creation of the whole of space based on the information technology which is called 'ubiquitous computing'; research into applications and interfaces that connect people to technology; and research into the design of a new society, which we will have to consider after everything has been linked together.
