Course description and aims

In this course, methods on planning, execution, and presentation of research on computing science and engineering as well as skills for science communication and carrier development related to computing science and engineering will be considered through active participation on presentations and discussions. Concerning the "planning of the research, execution, and presentation methods", the attendees should acquire methodologies on how to set research challenges, planning, execution and evaluations through their achievement's presentations and discussions over the presentation of other attendees. Also, they will learn how to summarize research papers and present them as well as skills to write research proposals. This lecture will also foster interdisciplinary and English communication through discussions over different research fields, and inter-cultural matters involving non-Japanese students. On "science discussion and carrier development", there will be considered the role of researchers who had a computer science and/or engineering training in the society, and some thoughts about their carrier.

The objective of this course is the acquisition of research methodology, presentation skills, discussion in English that a doctoral program student must have until obtaining the degree through active participation in the classes.
