Graduate School/Areas


ICT (Information and Communications Technology) has made great advances and supported progress in all science and technology. In addition, ICT investment has a close relationship to corporate performance, and has become a key driver of national growth strategy. This trend is clearly increasing as our daily lives with IoT (Internet of Things) are based on smart infrastructure and highly dependent on ICT systems. The Next-generation Digital Infrastructure Research Area performs research and graduate education on the fundamentals of ICT systems, to make wide-ranging contributions not only to human resources development and academic research achievement but also to industry, standardization activities, and governmental policy making.

Education policy:

In this area, we are conducting education and research in fields that are the basis of information engineering, such as computer hardware and software, networks and security, and cultivate students who acquire solid theories, technologies and methodologies that are not influenced by trends. Research in this area requires a wide range of knowledge, fundamental theories and technologies whose necessity has been recognized over time, which should be necessary for developing new ICT systems in the future. We are also focusing on exercises, Project Based Learning and so on, with the goal of developing the practical skills of students.
