About the School

Feature & Curriculum

The three fields of IPS

The Graduate School of Information, Production and Systems comprises three fields of study: Information Architecture, Production Systems, and Integrated Systems.
Your postgraduate work will give you an integral view of these three fields, enabling you to acquire the most advanced professional knowledge as a foundation for applying information and system LSI technologies to a broad range of production systems and their management.

A fusion of management and technology

We offer lectures that introduce state-of-the-art knowledge from a technology-management perspective of interest to the general public students.
It is possible to choose from among various patterns for the taking and completion of classes. Here, the aim is a general one: to assist the student in becoming a technologically well-informed specialist.

How IPS is organized

IPS is cross-disciplinary, giving you broad and interconnected coverage of both software and hardware across various areas of investigation.

Curriculum and projected subject

A progressive, flexible curriculum from theory to application

  • Fundamental subjects
    Acquire basic knowledge and skills
  • Advanced subjects
    Proceed to the most advanced and specialized knowledge
  • Laboratory work
    Gain practical grounding as an engineer
  • Specialized subjects and seminars
    Deepen your knowledge and explore your understanding of methodology

New curriculum is going to begin in April 2020. For more details, click the tab, “For Admission 2020 and later”.

The master’s degree program offers three options: (a) a research-oriented course dealing mainly with advanced research; (b) a standard course; and (c) a lecture-oriented course designed primarily to impart new specialized knowledge. Students can choose any one of the three courses once they have fulfilled a certain credit requirement defined in each course as explained below. Additional courses can be taken even when the credit requirements have been fulfilled.

Course a

Research-oriented. Students obtain 18 required credits over a six-month period and, if accepted into a laboratory through an interview with faculty, spend one and a half years primarily engaging in research for their master’s thesis.

Course b

Standard type. The first year is mainly dedicated to lectures and practical training. Students obtain 22 required credits and, if accepted into a laboratory through an interview with faculty, spend one year primarily engaging in research for their master’s thesis.

Course c

Lecture-oriented. Students concentrate on lectures and practical training for the first one and a half years to obtain 26 required credits. If accepted into a laboratory through an interview with faculty, they carry out an assigned research task over the remaining six months.
