Students conduct research on technology that is friendly to human beings by merging and accumulating wisdom about information and knowledge.
- International environment: Three out of nine of our full-time faculty members are from overseas and we accept a large number of overseas internship students.
- Exercises, practices, and experiments with a small-group instructional system for long-term basic learning and the consolidation of what has been learned into practical knowledge.
- Active participation of students in practical research projects in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Information technology Research in the College of Science and Engineering.
As we can see in the development of the World Wide Web, IT (information technology) is commonly regarded as a tool for increasing convenience and speed. However, the Department has named itself the "Integrated Information Technology Department" because it views IT as something that is to be used in the development of a sound society, and because it conducts research on such technology for the welfare of human beings in areas such as reliability, safety and comfort. With the goal of realizing a technology that can easily be used by everyone, and for bringing about societies, companies and households in which human beings and machines/systems can co-exist, the Department provides three academic fields: "Software Technology" for fields including artificial intelligence and natural language processing; "Mechatronics Technology," which is characterized by robots; and "Human Factor Technology," which is a field of study from the perspective of human factors in engineering and welfare. Through these academic areas, we are making discoveries in new theories and making practical proposals. Faculty members include leading figures in network technology as well as many people with on-site work experience, so students can study while receiving practical instruction.
