Department of Information and Computer sciences
The Department of Information and Computer Sciences aims at educating undergraduate students to acquire basic scientific ability and technological mastery in the fields of informatics and mathematical science. After one year of general education including basic courses in computer science, students are required to enter one of the three courses offered by Divisions of Computer Science, Software Science, and Mathematical Science. Almost ninety percent of the students proceed to the graduate program, after completion of 4 years of the undergraduate program or 3 years of high achievement. Many other students go to electronic, computer, communication, or software industries after graduation. The Divisions of Computer Science and Software Science share the education program aiming at fundamental training in computer science and software science. The Division of Mathematical Science includes both applied mathematics and statistical sciences.
Computer Science Course
The Division of Computer Science is concerned mainly with research and education in basic theory of computer science such as the theory of computation and information theory, and in areas of design and development of information systems such as the design of digital systems, computer architecture, bioinformatics, computer networks and multimedia information systems.
Software Science Course
The Division of Software Science is concerned mainly with research and education in basic theory of computer science such as the program theory and algorithms, and in the design methodologies and application techniques of software systems including programming languages, database systems, operating systems, software development methodologies, human interface, and intelligent information processing.
Mathematical Science Course
This course consists of three research areas, namely, mathematical models, statistical science, and mathematical and statistical finance. Mathematical science aims at understanding practical phenomena by constructing and analyzing mathematical models. For the purpose, we extensively utilize advanced mathematics and computers such as computer simulations, computer graphics, and developing several algorithms. In this course, emphasis is placed on research and education of differential equations, applied analysis, statistical analysis, data sciences, statistical inference, probabilistic modelling, and stochastics and mathematical finance.
