IS, the Perfect Place to Study


The Graduate School of Information Systems, UEC is an independent graduate school without having undergraduate courses. This makes it unique from others. Since there are only graduate students, you can receive research guidance far more than you can expect. Having students with a wide range of diverse backgrounds is another attractive feature of this graduate school. This is a very effective research and study environment because you can have a lot of opinions from different kind of views, and this will not only broaden your research, but also building up your communication skills as a researcher or engineer. For foreign students that wish to enter this graduate school, there are some support systems provides such as scholarships, tutor system, and Japanese Language trainings. However, the hospitality and help from teachers and staffs at this graduate school to me was the most precious of all. Finally, I just want to say that by studying at this graduate school, you can take an enormous experience that is unable to be found anywhere else. So, don't miss out the opportunity to become a student at The Graduate School of Information Systems, UEC.

Let's Develop Your Bright Future Career

Dr. Agung Budi Sutiono, Medical Doctor at Hasan Sadikin Hospital in Bandung , Indonesia

I am Agung Budi Sutiono, medical doctor and work as neurosurgeon from Padjadjaran University Faculty of Medicine Hasan Sadikin Hospital Bandung Indonesia. I graduated from Department Social Intelligence and Informatics.
It was my great opportunity for me when I passed the entrance examination at The University of Electro-Communication (UEC), through university recommendation of Monbukagakusho scholarships. I am really proud to study here. Although my educational background is from medicine and neurosurgery,
I could follow all the doctoral program in Ohta laboratory under supervision Prof Toshizumi Ohta. He supervised me with excellent teaching and education program so that I could develop my research purpose based on my educational background.

The UEC also provided us the research tools as well as opportunity to present our research findings in the domestic and even in international academic society. There are many collaborative research in our laboratory.
I experienced receiving grant from Matsushita International foundation, Asia Pacific Tele-Community, Asia Pacific Advanced Network, International Medical Informatics Association and at the last of my completion of doctoral course, I was awarded a prestigious Post Doctoral Fellow from JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science). My research theme is development of traumatic brain injury computer user interface.

Therefore I really encourage to all prospectus student at UEC to come and study in order to develop your bright future carrier. The last but not least, I would like to deeply gratitude to my supervisor, Prof Toshizumi
Ohta, Dr Hirohiko Suwa, and the President of University of Electro-Communications and also all staff in our graduate school of Information systems.

An Exciting Experience in IS

Baskara Nugraha, Lecturer at Institut Teknologi Bandung in Indonesia

My life at IS began when I was an exchange student at UEC (JUSST program) for 6 months. I entered a laboratory in IS and started enjoying the facilities and the research topics offered. Then, few years later, I came back to IS as research student and then afterward enrolled as PhD student. Even though I already had some experiences in the lab, being a graduate student is different than exchange student. At first the daily and academic life was a little bit hard, especially the Japanese language related matter. Fortunately, my supervisor was very helpful in guiding me to overcome the problems.

After almost three and a half years as research student and PhD student, I continued my work in IS as research associate and then as assistant professor for more than 5 years. Currently, I am with Institut Teknologi Bandung in Indonesia as a tenured lecturer.

My opinion on IS is that they made being a graduate student an exciting experience. They introduce us what information system is, including the state of the art of research in information systems and technology. They offered wide range of research topics, including mathematical foundation, computing systems, mechatronics systems, and the social aspects of information systems. IS is a place where we could learn how to use information and communication systems and technology to deliver human life's goal.

A Rich and Stimulating Environment

Gibran Fuentes Pineda, Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Autonomous University of Mexico

I had the privilege to spend 4 years at IS, first as an exchange student and later as a Ph.D. candidate. Since I first arrived, I was amazed by its infrastructure and organization. It provides all a graduate student needs to conduct a high-quality research. I was also pleasantly surprised to find such a diverse community with students and researchers from many different countries. For me, the most exciting thing about IS is its cutting-edge research in a wide variety of topics. Information systems now influence many aspects of our lives and it is very gratifying to be able to contribute to their advancement, developing new methods and applications. When I was an exchange student, I found particularly interesting the topic of object discovery from images which was introduced to me by my professors and it later became the topic of my Ph.D. After my graduation, I decided to pursue a career in research at the National Autonomous Universityof Mexico where the experience acquired at IS has been invaluable. All in all, studying at IS was a life-changing experience for me and I feel really fortunate to have had such a great opportunity.
