Department of Electronics and Computer Science

Department of Electronics and Computer Science was established in 1989. Its purpose is to train students to become engineers possessing hardware skills related to electronic engineering, software skills related to computer science, and overall skills related to electronics and computer science.
This department places great importance on developing students’ understanding, creativity, and judgment, and on cultivating their ability to positively approach unknown fields in order to keep up with the rapid advances in electronic engineering and computer science. The department offers subjects that lead to acquiring qualifications including the Fundamental Information Technology Engineer qualifying examination, and nurture the positive attitude of students.

Admission Policies

Department of Electronics and Computer Science seeks those who:
(1) Are interested in the mechanisms and principles of computers and the Internet;
(2) Want to build electronic circuits and programs on their own and actively run them;
(3) Want to study cutting-edge information and communication technology, and plan to pursue a career in the field of electronics and computer science.

Major facilities and apparatuses

The department utilizes laboratory equipment, such as microcomputers and electronic circuits, related to microcomputers, and practical computer network training facilities. The information processing laboratory enables students not only to train in the basics of programming, but also in a wide range of applications using a network of 50 personal computers.
Wireless LAN systems are available in laboratories and classrooms for third-year students and above, and the laptop personal computers that are purchased in the third year are utilized for coursework and connected to the network.
