Mobile communication and Internet access have become so commonplace in our lives that we often take the underlying information and communication systems for granted. These systems are, in actual fact, huge systems built on a multitude of remarkable technologies. By studying these component technologies, students get to recognize the intricacies and ingenuity of information and communication systems. It is hoped that through their studies at the Department of Information and Communications Engineering, students will find intrigue and depth in technologies they have never encountered before.
The information and communication systems we see today consist of devices and equipment efficiently and flexibly controlled by software. This symbiotic relationship between hardware and software means that modern-day advanced systems will not work if either is lacking. Because of this, the Department of Information and Communications Engineering provides thorough education with an emphasis on both the hardware and software aspects of systems that students can benefit from.
The Department of Information and Communications Engineering has introduced a new curriculum designed in alignment with the Institute's 2016 education reform. The curriculum reflects the latest developments in information and communication technologies, and is structured so students can effectively acquire the knowledge and theories needed to become successful information and communication engineers.
The department's courses are taught by first-rate faculty engaged in research and development of fundamental technologies used in information and communications engineering and applied information systems. Equipped with a thorough understanding of the technologies involved in the field, the faculty are capable of teaching advanced content with insight into the latest technological trends.
In today's advanced information and communication society, there are few companies that do not rely on information and communication systems to run their business. Expertise in information and communication technologies is highly sought after, and graduates of the department go on to enjoy successful careers in various industries.
