Three Policies of School of Computer Science
Admission Policy at School of Computer Science
The School of Computer Science considers for admission those who apply themselves, with strong interest and eagerness, to the study and research in advanced ICT and aspire to realize their dreams through personal growth, especially those who desire to become creative educated individuals with a sense of humanity and an awareness of ethics and are motivated to build new social systems as ICT engineers, thereby contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.
Curriculum Policy at School of Computer Science
To fulfill TUT’s fundamental mission “To build up human resources that will contribute to the improvements in the quality of life and to the progress of technology,” the School of Computer Science sets forth the following curriculum policy, aiming to educate students to become internationally minded, educated individuals equipped not only with a sense of humanity and an awareness of ethics but also with creativity, specialized knowledge, and skills in advanced ICT to contribute to the construction of a sustainable society:
- 1. Liberal Arts
To foster an international mindset, a sense of humanity, an awareness of ethics, and high creativity, the Liberal Arts subject group is composed of four subgroups of subjects: (a) humanity and social sciences, (b) foreign languages, (c) informatics (computers), mathematics, and other natural sciences, and (d) character building subjects (good citizenship, wellness).
- 2. Specialized Subjects
(a) Basic Specialized and Common Subject Groups
These are designed to give students a solid foundation for studying basic and practical subjects common to all specialized fields at the School of Computer Science, focusing on fundamental knowledge and skills. They are offered as required, required elective, or elective subjects.
(b) Specialized Subject Group
These are designed to put students through knowledge and skills in advanced ICT such as programming, information system development, information networks, and applications development and then to foster the ability to solve field problems or create new values by systematically applying such knowledge and skills.
They include, as required or required elective subjects, a variety of exercises and experiments typical of computer science, so as to nurture the ability for practical application.
They further include, as required subjects, a graduate project and its prerequisite creative exercises, so as to nurture the ability to put to practice what they have learned during the four-year period and ultimately solve real-life problems.
Diploma Policy at School of Computer Science
The requirements for qualifying for a diploma are, first, to enroll for a pre-specified period of time in the School of Computer Science, second, to earn a minimum of 124 credits by completing subjects (liberal arts, basic specialized, and specialized) that are designed adhering to its principles of educating students to become ICT engineers equipped with a solid technical foundation, expansible power of execution, an awareness of ethics, and a business mind, and finally to pass the graduation exam for a bachelor. The subjects mentioned herein include not only lectures but also a graduation paper as well as exercises and experiments that are specified by the School.
The criteria for passing the graduation exam for a bachelor are that the student has adequately mastered both liberal arts subjects, which are offered across all the schools of TUT, and specialized subjects, which are specifically designed by the School and whether the student is possessed of communication skills, logical thinking ability, an analytic mindset, evaluation skills, and problem solution skills.
