From Staff

In our lives, technologies that are based on various imaging sciences, such as measurement, processing, analysis, reproduction and assessment, are utilized for all visual information. These imaging technologies continue to evolve every day along with the development of digital imaging devices and have therefore become important in our lives. For a long time, imaging technology has been developed as a signal processing application field such as for the improvement of processing efficiency; however, in recent years, it is a challenge to understand it interdisciplinary by integrating various kinds of visual information received by humans with appropriate specialized fields. Furthermore, "shitsukan" representation of images, emotions, and value judgments obtained from images are also important research topics, and their development for industrial applications is indispensable. Therefore, human resources who can grasp various fields related to imaging science with a bird's-eye view and can then utilize it are needed.

The imaging science course, which is based on information science, image science, and vision science, covers a wide range of imaging fields and acquires practical information that is useful in various industries.

Admission Policy

In the classes for this course, students can specialize in image education. In addition, by collaborating with the department of Architecture and the department of Design, students can take courses in the departments related to the environment surrounding the imaging field. Thus, in the imaging science course of this department, we will foster advanced intellectual human resources with wide knowledge on space and design that is essential for imaging technology. Our university provides a comprehensive educational environment related to these imaging sciences, which is a distinct advantage. Furthermore, students will acquire advanced expertise in each field by incorporating imaging-related subjects offered in all major divisions of the Graduate School, which can be opted as electives. In addition, we introduce a project-based learning (PBL) subject, cultivate practical problem-solving abilities, practice international education, and innovation education such as international study practice and venture education, and develop world-class human resources.
