  • Department of Computer Science, Year 4 Minami Mori

    情報工学科在学生からのメッセージI was nervous before I joined the university because I assumed that there would be very few girls at the School of Engineering. But actually, I soon made many friends, both boys and girls and was able to lead a very exciting and fun university life. I loved playing games from when I was small. Soon, I started to become interested in gaming graphics, music, systems….and decided to enroll in the school of computer science and engineering. In class, we learned about computing structures and programing. At first, I entered the lab with no knowledge of C language and I struggled to complete even one exercise. Now, I can somewhat utilize the knowledge I have gained. There is also a class called scientific and technical English. They teach you a lot of engineering related words so if I have to write a research paper or do a presentation in the future, this class would definitely be useful. There are definitely benefits being a student at a technical university…I hope you too can achieve your dreams here!

    情報工学科在学生からのメッセージ

    It’s already been 3 years since I first set foot onto Nagoya Institute of Technology campus and now I am in my 4th year, enjoying every single day. At the Department of Computer Science, we have the opportunity to gain a broad understanding of the structure of a computer, from hardware point of view like the CPU and from software point of view like artificial intelligence or computer graphics. Without realizing, these computers support and make our daily lives comfortable in many ways. The learning environment is well facilitated and we are very fortunate to have the department laboratories, where Computer Science majors can use the computers, anytime of the day, at our disposal. Outside the classrooms, the University has helped me form a strong relationship with my peers and professors and has greatly helped me mature as a person as well. I am convinced that the strength, knowledge, and experience you will gain from enrolling into the Department of Computer Science will be irreplaceable. I say this because this is true for me. So for all of you out there, considering a university, whether you are interested in computers or not, join me at the Nagoya Institute of Technology’s Department of Computer Science and see for yourself the fascinating world of computing and manufacturing, and enjoy the social life as a university student! I am no poet but I hope that my words were able to give you a glimpse of the wonderful opportunities you could experience today!

    ~With love from the laboratory~

  • Graduate School of Engineering, Scientific and Engineering Simulation – Year 1 Yuuki Satomi

    情報工学科在学生からのメッセージAt the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, you can learn about the basics of computer science to the technical details, in a structured manner. As you move on every year through the course, you start to understand how they all come together and relate with each other and become even more interesting. You also get to reconfirm what you have learned, through laboratory exercises. The laboratory exercises are usually done in groups and you’re hardly on your own so not only are the exercises fun, but it ensures that we understand and if not, we can help each other out. We all work and stimulate each other and make sure we always think “out of the box”. Computer Science technology is invaluable in various fields. If you can keep an open mind, you will one day, see the path that you must take. I hope you can find what you want to do through the Department of Computer Science and make it a reality.

  • Graduate School of Engineering, Computer Science, Year 2 Shunsuke Miyashita

    情報工学科在学生からのメッセージComputers are used in games, in cars and in other various aspects of our lives. I applied to the school thinking that it would be interesting if I could deepen my knowledge and be able to control them. In class, we learn the basic program that controls computers, all the way to manipulating CG, robots and sounds too. Using this knowledge as the base and applying it in various different ways, I have been able to create a simple application of my own. Since I have been appointed to a research laboratory, I have been learning about VR, which has been an area of interest of mine. I would like to further continue my research and deepen my knowledge and techniques. Take a moment to consider the wonderful opportunities that a graduate program can bring for you.

Message from the Head of Computer Science (Undergraduate and Graduate program)
Hiroshi Matsuo Professor

 

As all of you are aware, new systems that are transforming social structures such as SNS are continuously created through the information field. In today’s heavily informed society, such technology and systems created by computer science have become the main support underpinning the stability in our society’s transformation.

We have been able to realize complex functions with artificial intelligence, which living beings were thought to only have, such as intelligence, senses, feelings and emotions, through computer science. We are also researching the structure of how to artificially recreate social activity traits, such as the ability to work together, negotiate and build a consensus, in hopes to support various people and our society. My wish is for all you young people to experience, first hand, the appealing characteristics of computer science and the power it has to directly affect society’s innovative changes.
