Faculty of Informatics
- Main Campus (Higashiosaka City, Osaka Prefecture)
Fostering Information Technology Professionals to Meet Society's Needs
In accordance with Kindai University's founding principles of future-oriented "learning for the real world" and "nurturing intellectual and emotional intelligence," our goal is to nurture information technology professionals who have the insight to grasp accurately core problems from a broad perspective, the expertise to solve technical problems, the progressive thinking and creative ability to respond to ever-advancing information technology, and the responsibility and awareness as members of society. In their first year, students learn the basics of mathematics, programming, and computing through lectures and practical training. In their second year, they are divided into the "Intelligent Systems Course," "Cyber Security Course," and "Physical World Computing Course" to systematically study a wide range of fields related to informatics. Throughout the four years of study, students are given seminar and research guidance in small groups. We provide a learning environment that facilitates active discussions among students and dialogue with the coordinating faculty members, fostering the ability to think creatively, think outside the box, and solve problems.
