The progress of information science, especially the increased applicability of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), has not only raised productivity of the whole industrial field but also brought about great changes to our economy, society and culture. Meanwhile the discipline of electrical engineering has a long history and embraces a wide variety of industrial fields. It has produced highly functional, complicated and large-scale electrical and electronic systems, which provides an important basis of many types of information systems. Therefore, it is expected that electrical and electronic engineering will develop in close cooperation with information science. In order to meet this expectation, the Graduate School of Information Science and Electrical Engineering cultivates researchers and engineers of the next generation in the field of Information Science and Electrical Engineering ( I & E ), who have advanced research ability and a broad range of expertise.
