Since April 2021, the Graduate School of Information Science and Electrical Engineering, Kyushu University has been providing education in a new organizational structure. The aim is, anticipating rapid changes in the coming new era, to nurture top experts in AI, mathematics, and data science in the field of information science and technology, and to educate the students into engineers and researchers in the area of electrical and electronic engineering who contribute, from the hardware aspects, to development of information technology and social infrastructures. To this end, the Department of Information Science and Technology has, in its master's program, three courses (programs): Information Architecture and Security, Data Science, and AI and Robotics, while the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering offers two courses in its master's program: Devices and Systems for Information, and Devices and Systems for Energy. The names of the five courses indicate where and how, in the real world, the students apply their acquired knowledge and skills. Our system teaches theories and fundamental knowledge in the field signified by the name of each department, and their applications to the society specified by the name of each department, and their applications to the society specified by the name of each department, and their applications to the society specified by the name of each course. We believe that it is clear for those who are thinking of joining the graduate school and those who are thinking employing the students what types of education is given in which file and for what type of applications.
The Graduate School/Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering covers both of information science and technology field, and electrical and electronic engineering area, which is unique among the major universities in the country. Information science/technology and electrical/electronic engineering are not independent disciplines, but should be closely related to each other so that they are actively and effectively utilized in the future society. We call this combined area Shisutemu Joho Kagaku. IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies are advancing, are going to be applied, as in 'Society 5.0', in all the aspects and functions of our society such as industry, agriculture, commerce, transport, education, health care, disaster prevention, and daily life, and are expected to contribute to the sustainable and prosperous society. They require the technologies such as sensing, communication, data analytics, decision making and control, the fundamental theories underlying these technologies, and the foundation of their implementations such as electronic devices and energy supply. We further the comprehensive research and education on all of these.
The Graduate School/Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering are promoting research on Shisutemu Joho Kagaku for the society in new era and nurturing engineers and researchers in the field to contribute to the safe and secure society rich in humanity in cooperation with the following related centers that are performing active research and education: Quantum Computing System Center, Education Center for Semiconductors and Value Creation, Quantum and Photonics Technology Research Center, Research Institute of Advanced Electric Propulsion Aircrafts, Education and Research Center for Mathematical and Data Science, Research and Development Center for Five-Sense Devices, Center for Japan-Egypt Cooperation in Science and Technology, Center of Plasma Nano-interface Engineering, Research Institute for Information Technology, Research Institute of Superconductor Science and Systems, and System LSI Research Center.
