Curriculum/lecture system chart

1S - 2S Semester

Electromagnetism, calculus, and linear algebra that you learn at Komaba will be the foundations of the studies at EEIC.
In addition, EEIC faculty members offer general subjects and university-wide experience seminars, so that students can experience a part of EEIC's academics before deciding to go on to the next studies.

2A semester

The 2A semester mainly deals with the basic areas of study at EEIC. The Department of Information and Communication Engineering, and the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering share the same timetable, and students study basic fields in both the physics-related department and information-related department, including mathematics and electromagnetism.
By offering information-related lectures for students majoring in physics and physics-related lectures for students majoring in information, students can gain a broader perspective.
In the 2A semester, there is a tutoring system by seniors in the department, and with the assistance of the seniors, students work together with fellow students in the department to complete assignments and have opportunities to make friends.

3S semester

In the 3S semester, students continue to study each basic field of the physics-related department and information-related department. You will have a wider range of courses to choose from, making it easier to organize courses that match your interests.
In addition, the student experiment (first term experiment) will begin. The purpose of the student experiment is for students to actually use their hands to learn what they have learned in 2A and 3S. Students majoring in physics fields and information fields are mixed and divided into groups, and work together to carry out the same experimental assignments.
This experimental group is called a “contact group,” and each group has a faculty member in charge, and there are opportunities to talk about student life.

Course selection

At the end of the 3S semester, you will choose a course. Students majoring in physics fields and students majoring in information fields can each choose from three courses. Each course requires slightly different content, and students can decide on a standard study plan for laboratory assignment.
On the other hand, as long as you meet the requirements for each course, you can freely choose other lectures. Also, there are no restrictions on laboratory assignments depending on the course you belong to.

3A semester

In the 3A semester, the number of lectures offered increases, and students can freely choose which lectures to take. The content will also become more specialized, and it will be an opportunity to dig deeper into your own interests ahead of being assigned to a laboratory for the graduation thesis in your fourth year.
In addition, second term experiments will be conducted. In the second term experiments, you will choose multiple themes that interest you from nearly 30 themes and participate in them. The feature is that you can choose a specialized theme that will serve as a bridge to your graduation thesis research and in some cases, the results of experiments are published as papers and accepted by international academic conferences.

Laboratory assignment

Laboratory assignments are made after the 3A semester. Assignments are decided based on grades and student wishes, and regardless of whether you belong to the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering or the Department of Information and Communication Engineering, you can be assigned to a laboratory in the other department. Even if your interests change throughout your academic life, the system allows you to flexibly choose a laboratory.

4S - 4A Semester

Graduation research will be done. There will be a mid-term review in October and a final review in February. A plan is made according to these reviews and the research will be conducted. The results of the graduation thesis are often presented at academic conferences both in Japan and abroad.
