Information for New Education (April 2016)
The University of Electro-Communications, which celebrates its centenary in 2018, recognizes that fostering and producing highly-skilled professionals who can lead Scientific and Technological Innovation in order to support a knowledge-based society is our primary mission. Therefore, we have decided to implement reform and reorganization to enhance and strengthen our institution. We have established an entirely new educational and research system since fiscal year 2016.
In addition, faculty names, the numbers of places available for the school (faculty) and graduate schools, and their admission selection methods have also been changed on the basis of the reform and reorganization.
Please refer to the PDF files as below.
Major points for this reform and new educational system (School(Faculty)/ Graduate School)
- To replace the former educational programs based on the departments and courses, daytime courses/programs in the new undergraduate program have student-centered, flexible and systematic education curriculums, and have been reorganized into 14 educational programs in 3 clusters (Informatics and Computer Engineering, Emerging Multi-interdisciplinary Engineering, and Fundamental Science and Engineering).
The existing two courses of ‘Fundamental Programs for Advanced Engineering (evening course)’, “mature student course” and “internship course”, have been reorganized into an evening program for mature students who wish to study at university primarily in the evenings.
“Admission Guidelines for the School of Informatics and Engineering for 2016 Entry”are attached for your reference. New guidelines for 2017 entry are scheduled to be released in July.
- The former Graduate School of Informatics and Engineering and Graduate School of Information Systems have been reorganized into a new graduate school, “Graduate School of Informatics and Engineering”, to enhance our educational and research abilities. Following PDF also provides the information regarding the entrance examination for the new graduate school.
