CS Curriculum

The Department of Computer Science offers a variety of courses ranging from fundamental principles to cutting-edge technologies.

Academic Programs

  • Degree Programs

    • Master's Program (General Program) offers students an opportunity to obtain the Master of Engineering degree by taking credits of courses and doing original research.
    • Computer Science English Program offers foreign students an opportunity to obtain the Master of Engineering degree by using English only. The requirements of completion are the same as the General Program above.
    • Practical IT Program offers students an opportunity to obtain the Master of Engineering degree by taking credits of courses focusing on practical IT education. This program gives students the skills to plan and develop information systems through project-based learning. (Available until the studends who entered by FY2016)
    • Doctoral Program offers students an opportunity to obtain the Doctor of Engineering degree by doing highly competitive, original research.
  • Non-Degree Programs

    • Computer Science English Program also offers (Japanese-speaking) students an opportunity to improve their English. A certificate of program completion is given to those students who satisfy the specified conditions.
    • The Practical IT Curriculum offers students an opportunity to acquire the ability for practical solutions to the industrial problems by utilizing information technology and the information infrastructure which keep evolving. Its description in Japanese can be found here.
