Masterfs Program Admission Policy

Computer science and information technology have had a very strong impact on the entire society so far, and will be a core technology for our future world. The information network system is now a crucial infrastructure for all mankind. While we can enjoy various benefits in our daily life and economic activities, we are now facing an increased risk of security such as system vulnerability against safeness and reliability, information exposure, leakage, and falsification. Therefore, it is of growing importance to approach information security from various viewpoints. However, there had been no systematic study and research specializing in information security at graduate schools in Japan before IISEC was established. There has been serious concern over the lack of IT specialists who have advanced technology, knowledge and analytical ability in information security. This issue could be a great obstacle in the development of information security.

IISEC boasts of distinguished faculty staff of information security, which is a synthetic science of technology, management and operation, legal system and governance, and information ethics. They are active in front lines of both academia and industries, and are professionals with top-level knowledge and technology, with deep insight into moral and ethics. IISEC promises to bring up both information security engineers who can take technical countermeasure, and information security managers who can be leaders in operating and managing information security systems.

IISEC Doctoral program aims to foster promising students grounded in a interdisciplinary science "information security", who will form new theory and/or develop systems to pursue the future direction of the drastically changing advanced information society. The graduates are expected to be distinguished researchers and research leaders who will contribute to our future society by discovering the seeds of information security problems, and solving them proactively with broad insight.

In the admission process, we check first your basic scholastic achievement enough for your research in the institute, then we ask your sense of ethics and awareness of issues in information society, and how you will be responsible and active for your future research. We hope you are working hard together with colleagues with various backgrounds, and pursuing self-fulfillment and social contribution.
