The first half of this course will be presented by instructors from the NEC central research laboratories. The second half of this course will be presented by instructors from the Fujitsu laboratories. In the class, the teaching material is projected on the screen. Using lots of related pictures and photographs, each technology is explained according to the course schedule. Through the Questions and Answers, the correct and deep understanding is enhanced. Real products and samples will be shown in the class if necessary for better understanding.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
All course materials will be provided in each class.
Learning achievement is evaluated by the quality of the written reports on specific themes.
Students may approach the instructors at the end of class upon securing an appointment through e-mail.
