Course description and aims

Students will conduct research on a research topic decided in consultation with their academic supervisor. Students will deepen their understanding of topics related to their research topic through surveys of the literature, define a problem through research activities and debate, and attempt to solve it. During the course of conducting research, students will use expertise learned from various prior courses and related general knowledge, learning techniques to solve these problems. Students will become familiar with research methods such as acquiring data, and analyzing and examining the acquired data, while honing the skills to view things from multiple perspectives. In addition, students will organize their findings to write, publish, and debate their dissertation. Dissertation research is the core of research lab education in which students each work on a specific research topic, and complements course work based on a systematic curriculum. Through conducting research, students are expected to enhance their expertise while learning the skills to discover and select new topics and problems, the skills to guide unsolved problems towards their solution, and the comprehensive development skills required in the real world.

Student learning outcomes

Students will learn the following skills.
1) Apply expertise in Mathematical and Computing Science to problem solving
2) Learn the basics of a specialized field other than Mathematical and Computing Science on their own, and connect it to problem solving
3) Understand the position in society of an unsolved problem in Mathematical and Computing Science, judge the influence the problem's resolution will have on society, and work on its solution
4) Learn logical explanatory skills, expand discussions, and organize into writing
5) Have the awareness of an independent researcher, and the knowledge and explanatory skills necessary for attempting to communicate with others in discussions

Keywords
