Information engineering is indispensable technology for the realization and evolvement of a fertile human society.
The creation, communication, and processing of diverse media information contribute to the establishment of a bountiful future society, and the building of a firm foundation which enables nature, people and society to prosper in harmony.
In this department, students first master the fundamentals of information engineering such as network and software technologies, then move on to acquire skills in integrating various elemental technologies necessary to create and design systems that support the building of a safe and secure society.

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Social Design

    We address issues to be solved in modern times from the perspective of social design. Major themes include the design of systems for education, logistics, medical and health services, as well as disaster control, while applying a wide range of information technology. We also create new business models coming along with these systems.

    Akakura Research Group / Taniguchi Research Group

  • Data Science

    We collect and analyze information in order to understand various phenomena. For this purpose, major themes we work under include utilizing statistical methods and mathematical analysis techniques to scientifically process big data of enormous volumes, build models, and apply these to many different systems.

    Shinozaki Research Group / Shiohama Research Group / Sozu Research Group

  • Software Design

    As a fundamental technology supporting the realization of a ubiquitous society and other aspects of a diversified information society, we aim to create information networks that offer advanced security and even higher performance and functionality. Major themes include proposing new distributed processing, and cloud technologies.

    Fujisawa Research Group / Ikebe Research Group / Yashima Research Group

  • Intelligent Systems

    We design systems while analyzing and understanding the nature of the human intellect, in order to offer true assistance for human activities. Major themes include signal processing technologies adapted to robots with learning functions, and biometric information of humans, as well as the further development of media technology and the creation of new technologies.
