In our contemporary, advanced information society of the fourth industrial revolution, the roles played by information technology have expanded dramatically to the point where it is an indispensable part of manufacturing, distribution, finance, transportation, medicine, education, and all other areas of human activity. The benefits in our daily lives that we reap from information technology continue to grow. Information technology plays an essential role not only in hardware applications, such as delivering sophisticated computers, communication devices, and networks, but also in the software engineering-oriented methodologies used to tackle the challenges arising from a radically changing socio-economic environment.

The Department of Information and Computer Technology cultivates the sort of thoughtful researchers and engineers who are suited to this new era, providing them with a software engineering-centric curriculum that is divided into four tracks: Social Design, Data Science, Software Design, and Intelligent Systems.
