The main research area roughly falls into several categories such as; Social systems engineering/Safety system, Sociology/History of science and technology and Multimedia database.
•Social systems engineering/Safety system; we study on development of safety technology and intelligent informatics based on global safety standards, safety design, risk management, safety management. Nowadays, engineering systems are required not only having high effectiveness but also being secure and safe for our society. We aim to conduct system safety, engineering process, management principles using advanced control technologies which assure that engineered systems provide operational effectiveness, accident prevention, saving cost and lives.
•Sociology/History of science and technology; as well as the field of science studies, examine how humanity's understanding of Science and ability to manipulate technology have developed. We also study the cultural, policy, economic, and political impacts of scientific innovation. We interested in multidisciplinary study of how computation and evaluation technology leverages information to better understand policy and realize innovation in governance process and management.
•Multimedia Databases and Information Retrieval; we intend to improve the quantity and quality of information manipulated by computer users in computer aided design, and information retrieval. We apply and manage different types of data potentially represented in a wide diversity of formats and sources. Our research in this area involve content-based retrieval, data mining, and informatics.
You will learn a lot about your research field both in practice and theory. You will get much information and support. We have a several seminar in every week. You can report and discuss your research as well as you will be practiced your communication skills. Not only the suggestions from our teacher, you can ask and consult with our lab members who are willing to talk with you. There is no discrimination called junior or seniors but we are a family. There are many international students, include master and doctoral students. You can get a lot of cross-cultural experiences and different values. The international activities, symposiums and field trips are also provided the opportunities to learn many experiences and innovative development.
