The Graduate School of System Informatics, which consists of three departments: Systems Science, Information Science, and Computational Science, was established on April 1, 2010.System Informatics is an academic field that strives to contribute to the development, processing, and utilization of "system information".
What is system information? It is meaningful information that exists within a large-scale, complex "system" based on high-speed, large-capacity computing technology. The term "system" used here does not refer to the so-called information system, but rather to a broad "system" covering a variety of areas, from engineering to nature and society, including, people, living organisms, social activities, artificial products, space, earth and the like.
The Graduate School of System Informatics offers Master and Ph.D. programs in System Science, Information Science, and Computational Science. Students can continue in a consistent program from Master's to the Ph.D. degree. Upon completion of the Master's Program, students receive a Master's degree in System Informatics or in Engineering.
