Course description and aims

In this lecture, we will outline how to combine material science and information science, to lead them to researches containing various expert knowledge, and to open up a new field. Researches currently carried out at university will be explained examples.

The aim is to acquire basic skills to become "complex human resources" to advance creative material and information research by linking material and information, and thinking from a compound eye viewpoint.

Note) Complex Human Resources: Human resources capable of actively engaging in things concerning materials science, information science, and social services

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Gain knowledge of trends new methods and ways of thinking across both material and information fields, and to evaluate research
2) Participate in discussion about research on material and information based on expert knowledge
3) Draw conclusions from experimental results related to both material and information fields through logical thinking


Materials, Informatics, Interdiscipline

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Topics change every lesson. Remote class from Okayama and Suzukakedai lecture rooms.
