The Department of  Biomedical Information Sciences

Graduate School of Information Sciences: Doctoral Degree Program
Department of Biomedical Information Sciences

For pioneers of the future with an interdisciplinary background in information sciences, physics, chemistry, biology, and neuroscience.

Course Description

With the Japanese art of creative manufacturing, monozukuri, as its core principal, the teaching and research in our department is interdisciplinary and integrates a wide range of subjects such as information sciences, physics, chemistry, biology, and neuroscience. Within the course, the field of integrated circuit devices is aimed at the creation of future semiconductors and integrated circuits, which involves research and development in integrated circuits and the analysis of semiconductors. The field of biological engineering covers measurement, analysis, and applications related to the complicated and sophisticated information-processing systems of the brain. The fields of optical systems engineering and biosystems engineering focus on the development of new techniques to analyze complicated and varied environmental and bio-systems, and the application of this data for engineering purposes.
