Anticipated Students

At presentInformation Communication Technology (ICT) has become the infrastructural technology that support all social fields including finance, manufacture, administration, and education etc. Two kinds of abilities are demanded by this situation for engineers engaging in ICT.

The first is the ability of technology itself, namely possessing knowledge of computer science. The other one is the ability to make full use of ICT technology and reform users’ business.

QITO aims at fostering π-type engineers who possess both the above two abilities, namely advanced “technology ability” of computer science and advanced “creative ability” of utilizing ICT for profiting society.

QITO expects tenacious students with high motivation for research

In this course, students acquire abilities of technology and communication etc. by proceeding projects of PBL (Project Based Learning) in groups. In addition, practical knowledge could be learned through lectures given by teachers from industries. Also, students could examine their total abilities through long-term internship.

To sum up, if make full use of the curriculums and environment in this course, students could accumulate experiences that are impossible for other courses as well as learn practical skills.

Students who hope to acquirehigh practical ability that is related to Information Communication Technology (ICT), the foundation of information science and information engineering, and students who hope to acquire advanced technologies that are related to real world information processing and information-communication processing mechanisms such as robotics, multimedia processing etc., are sought by this course. Tenaciousstudents with high motivation for conducting research are expected to be enrolled in the course.

four goals

In QITO, fostering advanced ICT top personnel who lead innovation is considered as our goal. To achieve this goal, learning the following abilities are expected:

  • “Value Creation Ability” that produces new utilization approaches to ICT
  • “Technology Ability” that makes it possible for individual student to intensively study technologies
  • “Autonomy Ability” that is needed for individuals to work positively
  • “Project Management Ability” that is necessary for smooth accomplishment of projects
Four Goals

learning

In QITO course, in addition to traditional lectures given so far, curriculums centering on “PBL”, ”ICT All-Round Education/Omnibus”, and ”Long-Term Internship”, which have been insufficient in the past, are provided. In PBL, students, working in groups, pick up problems from real society, investigate solutions on their own, and conduct research and development of new technologies necessary to solve those problems as well as development of systems (proposals, designs, construction, and application, etc.). In addition, lectures, given by first-class managers/technicians/researchers from industries and centering on ICT, explainwhat are rising in today’s real society and what are necessary, etc. Thus, students could learn the most advanced, viewed from industry side, technologies and trends in the world. After lectures, social gathering meetings are arranged in which students could have conversation with industrial lecturers. In a friendly atmosphere, students are able to obtain various information about industries and company life etc.

PBL/Project Based Learning

The students in some groups solve some problems from real companies.
They acquire the practical skill by the spiral training in 1st semester of 1st-year, 2nd semester of 1st-year, and 1st semester of 2nd-year.

Omnibus

ICT All-Round Education/Omnibus

Various lectures by the top of companies or the technical specialist are held.
The students acquire the skill of communication through a question-and-answer period with lecturers.

Long-Term Internship

Long-Term Internship

The students experience the long-term internship one or two months.
They can select one from about 100 positions provided by more than 20 companies.

Although universities have been performing advanced education in ICT till now and many excellent students have been cultivated, a new type of education becomes necessary if we carefully consider how to foster future human resources.

This course (Social Information Systems Engineering Course, i.e., QITO course) is established in this context, that is, to foster ICT top human resources. For this purpose, an open, other than intramural, education becomes necessary. The course performs the education by keeping broad and close cooperation with other universities and industries (Keidanren). Let us lead Japan’s ICT to win the world!
