The Department of Information and Communications Engineering studies areas related to communication networks, represented prominently by such areas as mobile phones and the Internet. Topics range from integrated-circuit technologies used in communication to large-scale network systems. Students acquire a comprehensive understanding of both hardware and software — knowledge necessary in creating information and communications systems. They also develop a strong awareness of the merits of system reliability and serviceability. Furthermore, through programming courses, laboratory courses, and independent research projects, students deepen their understanding of the discipline and acquire practical skills. We aim to cultivate researchers and engineers who will be active in industry, academia, policy-making, and other international arenas related to information and communications engineering.
Information communication technology (ICT) enables and supports our everyday use of smartphones, email, and video and voice communications. In our department, students learn information theory — the foundation of our field —, along with error correction, cryptography, networks, VLSI, and circuit technology. Courses also cover information and communication systems such as signal and image processing, human interface, media information processing, artificial intelligence, and human sensory information processing. Come explore with us and work on state-of-the-art research in the ICT field.
