About Institute of Information Sciences and Electronics
Our Institute, one of the 26 institutes comprising the University
research system, was established in 1976 for research in information
and computer sciences. Now, the Institute is composed of 70 faculty
members, 11 research assistants and secretaries, and about 200
graduate students. The research fund of the Institute amounted to 200
million yens (about 1.7 million dollars) for the 2000 fiscal
The faculty members conduct research in their own areas as
well as undergraduate education at College of Information Sciences and
College of International Studies of the Third Cluster. They also are
responsible for the Doctoral Program in System and Information
Engineering and Master's Program in Sciences and Engineering
in the Graduate School.
The research and education fields of the Graduate School consist of
theoretical foundations and the leading edge of applied technology in
information sciences and electronics. Specific research fields include
computer architecture, software science, information mathematics and
modeling, media engineering, intelligent system, data and infology,
system/control engineering, and electronics/communication system. The
faculty members teach in Course of Information Sciences and
Electronics of the Master's Program and Computer Science Major,
Advanced Engineering Systems Major, and Risk Engineering Major of the
Doctoral Program. "Cooperative Graduate School System" has
been introduced to collaborate with national or corporation's research
institutes in Tsukuba Science City. This system allows students to
conduct their research in the research institutes including the
latest facilities and functions.
Some of the faculty members of the Institutes are associated with
three research centers and an educational center of the University:
the Center for Tsukuba Advanced Research Alliance,
Academic Computing and Communications Center,
and the Center for Computational Sciences.
