Course Features

What is the Information and Communications Engineering Course?

In this course, students systematically learn the basic technologies of information and communication from both aspects of hardware and software. Students will learn a wide range of topics including computer science,  electronic circuits, signal processing, optical and wireless communications, networks, AI and human interaction. In the experiment and practice courses, students will learn the basics through hands-on experiments such as programming to understand principles of the internet, and fabrication and evaluation of optical communication circuits.

THE World University Rankings 2024

THE (Times Higher Education) has been providing “THE World University rankings” every year since 2004. It uses the data from universities and ranks with the following indicators: teaching (the learning environment); research environment (volume, income and reputation); research quality (the outputs of research); industry (knowledge transfer) and international outlook (staff, students and research). The table shows the ranking of the major private universities in Japan. Shibaura Institute of Technology was ranked 4th in the research environment ranking and it was ranked 6th in the international outlook.
