The inquisitive spirit to tirelessly challenge the foundation
of information in the future

How will people receive information in 10, 100, or 1000 years, and what kind of information will it be? In the Department of Mathematical and Computing Science, we conduct top level research focused on mathematical science and computer science, and continue with a tireless inquisitive spirit to tackle fundamental research that will develop the information society of the future.


Open up new frontiers of society
with cutting-edge research

In the Master's Program, we develop individuals who study a broad range of advanced theories of mathematical science and computer science and put their knowledge to use in society, we cultivate creative talent who develop and deepen mathematical science and computer science independently. We develop people with the practical problem-solving skills to propose formulations and analysis methods based on mathematical models for modern, high-level, and complicated problems in global society, and are be able to build computer systems to instantiate and process them.

In the Doctoral Program, we develop talent who can deepen and start their own research based on a firm understanding and knowledge of mathematical science and computer science, and who have the research skills to propose and lead new approaches for solving various problems of modern society, as well as capable talent who open and drive forward new frontiers of science and technology as leaders who can succeed internationally in research institutes and companies.
