Faculty of Information Science

The main mission of the faculty is to serve for the country's IT sector directly, train competent IT experts capable of designing and developing operating system programs, artificial intelligence programs and various applications, and to play a leading role in developing up-to-date software and accelerating the IT industry in various sectors of the national economy.

The Department of Automation, established in August 1977, was renamed the Department of Computer Science in 1997 and promoted to the University of Computer Science, a college in September 1999. The University of Computer Science was renamed the University of Information Science in 2016 and has been called the Department of Information Science since October 2019.

The faculty has three institutes (Intelligent Science Institute, IOT Institute, AI Institute) and four departments (Information Security Department, Information Communication Department, Computer Education Support Program Department, and Software Engineering Department).

There are four research labs (AI research laboratory, visual information processing laboratory, language information processing laboratory, voice information processing laboratory) in the Intelligent Science Institute and there are three research labs (big data application laboratory, cloud computing research laboratory, embedded system research laboratory) in IOT Institute, as well as eight research labs in the AI Institute.

The course includes "information science", "information communication", "artificial intelligence", and "programming".

The typical subjects are "programming", "computer hardware systems", "data structures and algorithms", "computer graphics", "software engineering", "information theory and coding", "information security", "operating systems," "compilers", "embedded OS", "artificial intelligence", "deep learning", "natural language processing", "image information processing", "voice information processing", "computer networks", "communication system simulation", and "semantic web technology".

The Faculty of Information Science has over 300 teachers and researchers including three candidate academicians and 40 doctors, and there are 60 lecturers with with academic titles like professors and associate professors.

About 2 000 students are enrolled in the faculty.
