This course is designed for beginners as a comprehensive introduction to broad range of the Information and Communications Engineering especially to its fundamental fields, i.e., Communication, Network, Security / Signal Processing / Circuits and systems, VLSI technology / Human-Centric Information Systems. A series of lectures which is designed for students with no prior experience teaches the essential concepts and/or the state-of-the-art technologies in each corresponding domain.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) grasp basic ideas in the fundamental fields of Information and Communications Engineering
2) understand the relationships among many ideas that will be specialized in the advanced courses in the department
3) draw a roadmap of the relevant areas for further specialization
Information Theory, Coding Theory, Communication Systems, Network, Signal Processing, Circuits and Systems, VLSI, Human-Centric Information Systems
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Assuming a prerequisite learned until freshman year, each instructor presents a lecture on the essential concepts or the state-of-the-art technologies in the fundamental fields (i.e., Communication, Network, Security / Signal Processing / Circuits and systems, VLSI technology / Human-Centric Information Systems) of Information and Communications Engineering.

To enhance effective learning, for each class the students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes for preparation and another 100 minutes for review (including assignments) by referring to textbooks and other course materials.
Lecture materials will be given if necessary.
Learning achievement is evaluated by the quality of the written reports and answers to exercises, etc.
As a general rule, we only accept applications from students in the department of Information and communications Engineering.
Applications from students in the department of Transdisciplinary Science and Engineering are also accepted but are restricted if the number of applications is large.
