Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering
Humans, Earth, and eECo Future
Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering is composed of four fields: electronic materials, electrical systems, integrated electronics, and information and communication systems.
In the field of electronic materials, students develop magnetic hologram applications, nanophotonic devices, and high-performance hybrid materials, etc. making full use of various new material development technologies.
In the field of electrical systems, students develop technologies for the generation, transportation, storage and utilization of next-generation electric energy, and applications that combine these technologies.
In the field of integrated electronics, students develop combined optical and electronic devices, smart sensors, biosensors, and MEMS, etc. using university LSI production facilities that can perform everything from design to fabrication and evaluation.
In the field of information and communication systems, students develop high-frequency circuits, communication systems, high-speed processing, and security technologies, etc. for transmitting and processing information and energy wirelessly.
In this way, the department conducts education and research covering a wide range of fields.
From the undergraduate school to the graduate school master's and doctorate courses, students learn state-of-the-art electrical and electronic information engineering that places emphasis on practical skills through a comprehensive "spiral type education and research system."
The department prepares tailor-made state-of-the-art technical science curricula according to the aptitude and orientation of students, and trains leading and advanced technicians with a broad perspective and big picture thinking skills.
In addition, the department strongly collaborates with the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) and the unique educational programs promoted by the university to develop world-class educational research that will be useful for the international community and open up dreams and hopes for humanity.
