To help achieve a future smart society, the Department of Network Design provides students with opportunities to study and learn the technologies for designing, creating, and operating strict security systems, communication application software, and reliable information networks that enable people to share secure information anytime, anywhere, and with anyone.
Students in this department study the basics of information technology, such as computer architecture, operating systems, databases, and software engineering, and then hone their ability to develop programs on their own, using C, Java, Python and other programming languages. To meet the growing need for wide-ranging technologies that are applied in a vast number of useful tools, from communication devices to network applications, and to develop security technologies that will protect information systems from various threats, this curriculum covers a wide spectrum of specialty subjects, including communication theory, network design, information security, mobile access networks and various types of applications on smart devices. Students are also expected to cultivate practical skills through laboratory exercises.
No information system can exist without security technologies and information networks. Internet has globally connected among humans and things in many societies in the real world. To achieve their further evolution in the cyber-physical space, the roles that security and information network engineers are expected to play are more and more increasing in number and complexity. Department of Network Design fosters engineers who are capable of going beyond the demands of the times.
