In the Department of Information Science, we aim to explore and expand new academic fields of information science and technology that will contribute to an advanced information society. The Department thus provides students with a balanced education experience not only in computer programming, but also in the search for new methodologies related to the construction of basic mathematical information theories and information processing, as well as advanced information application technology. The focus is on computers, networks, information systems that organically combine these components, and the knowledge and media that forms the content of these systems.
