2. Ecole Polytechnique - Departement d Informatique L'informatique est un ensemble extremement vaste de connaissances, probablement aussi vaste que l'ensemble des sciences experimentales, et les outils utilises dans chacun des domaines qui la constituent (la compilation, la cryptologie, l'informatique graphique, ...) sont aussi differents que ceux de la physique de la matiere condensee et de la biologie cellulaire. Toutefois, toutes les branches de l'informatique partagent un certain nombre de concepts : ceux d'algorithme, de programme et de machine.
3. Harvard - Undergraduate Programs - Computer ScienceParticipate in research on software, graphics, artificial intelligence, networks, parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, and theory
THE ANSWERS TO TODAY'S BIG QUESTIONS - whether in engineering, physics, biology, or economics, inevitably have computation at their core.
Researchers and professionals increasingly need their own version of the search engine: a way to take a flood of information and organize and use it efficiently.
Computer science is of course about creating code and running software, but it takes more than clever keystrokes to go from an idea to an end product or solution. It takes teams of people.
It takes active collaboration. It takes reaching out to other fields. It takes management as well as technical savvy. In other words, individuals with imagination and leadership.
Our computer science curriculum is designed to offer students a great amount of flexibility-with time for related study and for outside opportunities, from sports to clubs to hobbies. You can readily combine your studies with other fields, including mathematics, physics, economics, psychology, and linguistics.
4. Kyoto University - Graduate School of Informatics The capitalist society was an industrial society where land, commodity and capital are worth possessing. A post-industrial society was called an information society where information itself is an origin of worth. This is because information became movable and sharable as information and communication technology (ICT) developed. In cooperation with the arrival of information society, the Graduate School of Informatics at Kyoto University was established in April, 1998 by reorganizing and integrating many chairs related to information. It is to be noted that the new terminology "informatics" was needed instead of more familiar words such as information technology or information science because of the width of related research areas. However informatics is not a union of the areas. We aimed to explore a genuine new research field, informatics, by promoting pioneering, creative and interdisciplinary academic works in the areas. Three main pillars of education and research in the Graduate School of Informatics are "1) interface between people and society, 2) mathematical modeling, and 3) information systems." An individual curriculum has been formed which connects various research areas to each in the following six departments, "Intelligence Science and Technology, Social Informatics, Applied Analysis and Complex Dynamical Systems, Applied Mathematics and Physics, Systems Science, and Communications and Computer Engineering." The most important subjects in the curriculum are "Advanced Study" in Master Course and "Advanced Seminar" in PhD Course, respectively, for preparing thesis. Graduate students usually aim to be independent academic researchers or technical professionals of high level by improving their specialty through such subjects. Most students have experience in making presentation at a conference and in contributing paper in their school days. Many of them have received some paper and student awards or research funds.
A distinguishing feature in education of the Graduate School of Informatics is to cultivate an abundance of talented human resources with a wide range of view as well as a high specialty. Recently a specialization of each university with respect to its missions has been required in Japan. The Graduate School of Informatics has attached greater importance to the missions both academic and technical professionals of high level. For the latter purpose many cooperative chairs and units from some institutes at Kyoto University and some companies have been kept from the beginning. A new cooperative unit between Osaka University, NAIST and three research institutes of companies located in Keihanna Area is placed and Office at UC Berkeley is now opened. In Curriculum many subjects common in the school are formed such as "Perspective in Informatics." Practical subjects are also formed such as communications in English and Japanese and a supercomputer simulation.
By the way serious problems have begun to appear such as a negative face of information society and a bad impression of younger generation about ICT. Therefore the Graduate School of Informatics with the aim of developing sound and harmonized information society should look a new direction of the next age. What is a post-information society? The 21st Century COE Program (2002-2006) and the Global COE Program (2007+) which several departments joined prescribe a "knowledge society" for the post-information society. We thought that an aim of the Graduate School of Informatics is to change the present information society to the sound and harmonized information society, namely, the knowledge society. The foundation of the knowledge society will be established through ICT connected to mathematical and systems sciences which is just an intersection of the three main pillars of the Graduate School of Informatics.
Though it may be a possible viewpoint to place informatics as a theory to develop the knowledge society, it is a destination of the Graduate School of Informatics on the twelfth year. The pillars intersect at one point here and deepen their own theories in symbiotic multi-cultures. Many talented human resources who can consider from the fundamentals and open up a new field in informatics have grown. However we should develop pioneering, creative and interdisciplinary new research fields being explored through mutual interactions among various fields to improve informatics more and more without contenting ourselves with the present level. The fresh air of inside or outside of Kyoto University should blow in from the open windows. If those say that our collective action and an international evaluation are relatively weak with all individual research activity, we should obtain dazzling achieve by systematic expansions. We sincerely welcome any honest criticism or views from inside or outside the school.
5. UC Berkeley School of Information The School of Information is both UC Berkeley's newest and its smallest school. Located in the center of campus, the I School is a graduate research and education community committed to expanding access to information and to improving its usability, reliability, and credibility while preserving security and privacy. This requires the insights of scholars from diverse fields-information and computer science, design, social sciences, management, law, and policy.
