Course description and aims

Students in the Forum of Computing will learn how to plan, practice, and present research in computing by participating actively in research presentations, discussions, and other practical activities. In addition, students will acquire science communication skills related to computing and learn about career development. In this course, students will act as chairperson of the presentation session, in addition to presenting their research topics. By actively participating in discussions with others, students develop understanding of relationships between their main research fields and others, and recognize the role of their research topic in our society. Through this process, students learn to encourage active discussions among students from different research and cultural backgrounds, which is necessary for interdisciplinary communication.

This course aims to help doctoral students acquire the skills in research methods, research presentation, international communication, etc., which they need to acquire before receiving their doctoral degrees through active participation in the class. In particular, this course aims to develop advanced skills for active participation in interdisciplinary discussions at research presentations in other fields.

Student learning outcomes

Students will acquire the following skills, particularly the advanced skill regarding 3), through attending this course.
1) How to plan and conduct research in general
2) Research presentation (presentation, paper)
3) Skills discussing science, interdisciplinary and international communication skills
4) Career development and science communication


Research planning, research execution, research presentation, research discussion, English communication

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Active participation is required by students. In each class, content focused on a student's own research presentation and discussions is dealt with, so preparation in advance is required.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.



Reference books, course materials, etc.

There might be some handout given during the lectures.

Assessment criteria and methods

Will be based on participation including presentation and discussion in the class. Will be detailed in the first lecture.
