Faculty Interview

Takeshi KawamuraAssociate Professor

◎Profile: Completed the former period of the doctoral program in precision engineering at the Graduate School of Engineering, Hokkaido University. Later, obtained a doctoral degree in engineering. Research interests include control engineering and vehicle guidance in snowstorms using near-field communication.

You have only one life to live.
There are things that you can
experience only at this very moment.
I recommend finding something you can devote yourself
to during campus life.

In this course, students learn about both hardware and software involved in computer science and information and communication, which are indispensable in modern society. Information engineers are in short supply in various sectors. To respond to such demand, this course offers a curriculum with broad subjects from the basics to advanced fields, such as artificial intelligence. These days, computers, robots and automobiles are connected to networks using information and communication technologies. It is essential for students entering these fields to systematically learn basic subjects from electromagnetics and electromagnetic wave engineering to applied subjects such as information networks, wireless communication engineering and advanced optical communication engineering. KIT offers an easygoing atmosphere for learning. Students are advised to find something they can be proud of after graduation while nurturing mind and body at KIT.
