Department of Information and Electronic Engineering

  • Utsunomiya Campus

Using information science and electronics to design useful systems

The conveniences of modern life and cutting-edge technology employ systems that are based on a combination of information science and electronics. The Department of Information and Electronic Engineering fuses information systems and electronic systems around computer techniques to produce information engineers to design the systems and electronics engineers to create the software with innovative ideas and problem-solving skills.

Curriculum

Designing systems that bring happiness to the world

The extensive curriculum encompasses software and hardware with an emphasis on useful technical skills. A key objective is to ensure that engineers and researchers use information science and electronics to bring happiness to the world. The curriculum includes e-learning components tailored to the level of attainment of individual students.

Year 1 Year 1 concentrates on introductory subjects in mathematics, physics, information technology, information science and electronics to provide a solid foundation for subsequent studies.
Year 2 In Year 2, students nominate either Information System or Electronic System as their primary focus, and take advanced subjects in their chosen stream.
Year 3 Year 3 is spent pursuing more in-depth study involving a variety of exercises and experiments. Advanced studies are augmented by exercises to develop problem-solving skills for challenges in the real world.
Year 4 In Year 4, students nominate a field of specialization and are assigned to a research team with a dedicated research supervisor for their chosen research project, which helps to develop analysis and problem-solving skills. Students have the option of progressing to the Clinical Engineering course at Teikyo Junior College.

Featured class

Experiments in Human Electronics
Mitsuhiro Ogawa

Intensive training in embedded systems

Experiments in Human Electronics was created in 2012 under a curriculum restructuring that combined two subjects, Exercises in Human Systems and Electronics Experiments. The new subject covers the basic principles of semiconductors, electric and electronic circuit design and manufacture, and the software and hardware technology behind embedded systems. Embedded systems are used in host of everyday products from automobiles to mobile phones, televisions and audio equipment. Embedding the computer into the product improves compatibility between electronic components and substantially improves product functionality.
"We begin by studying electric and electronic circuits and the active components in circuits, then move on to basic circuit design and manufacturing techniques," says Ogawa. "By the end of the course, students are able to construct their own controllable humanoid robot." Through a series of challenging experiments, students learn advanced electronics skills that can be utilized in product development in industry.
