Graduate School and Faculty of
Information Science and
Electrical Engineering

The Graduate School of Information Science and Electrical Engineering (ISEE) was established in 1996 offering both information science (I) and electrical/electronics (E) technology as the basis for a modern advanced information society. In 2000, the graduate school was reorganized and divided into the Graduate School (the education body) and the Faculty (the research body). This new two-body system provides flexibility in adaptation to new demands.

ISEE has been working in collaboration and cooperation with other new graduate schools such as the Graduate School of Systems Life Sciences and the Graduate School of Integrated Frontier Sciences. ISEE also provides leadership over a broad range of innovative research areas and maintains various research institutes and centers such as the Research and Development Center for Taste and Odor Sensing, the System LSI Research Center, the Research Institute of Superconductor Science and Systems, the Center of Plasma Nano- Interface Engineering.

ISEE has a double degree program with E-JUST (Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology) involving close and active exchange and collaboration between students and researchers. ISEE has many other international education and research partners such as University of Toulouse, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Indian Institutes of Technology, and so on. ISEE encourages graduate students to study abroad under the global course and support programs.

The Graduate School and Faculty of ISEE aim to contribute to the realization of a safe and secure society by utilizing I & E technologies, and to cultivate high expertise, superior research and development ability, and international outlook in the next generation of researchers and engineers.
