(ICTG class starts in Q3. Prof. Tei, D. is in charge of the class.)
The University of Aizu offers a UNIX-based computers and networking system to students in exercise rooms. Most lectures are designed to be held in this computing environment. In this course, students learn usage of the computing environment in the University of Aizu at first.  They then learn more generarized knowledge on computer and network systems, document preperation and handling, principal and mannar on communication via network, various tools for programming and data processing. The knowledge learned in the course is fundamental for professional activities after graduation from the university.

(ICTG class starts in Q3.And Prof. Tei and Misc. is in charge of the class.)
In this lecture, we primarily provide stories from various perspectives by experts in various fields about computers, understand the contents of academic fields of computer science and engineering and the significance of learning computer science and engineering In an era when computers are used in society at large, we learned from various perspectives what computer science and engineering is expecting from computer science and engineering, such as what society expects for computers, the risk to society that computers bring, etc. Make it useful for course design. Unlike many other subjects, this lecture gives lectures to experts in various fields. Specifically, in addition to the president, department head, responsible professor of each field / track, we also have the opportunity to talk about external experts.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
By listening to experts in many fields of computer science and engineering, it will be a guide for student's own course determination. As a concrete course, we will provide contents that will be helpful for choosing which field and track, research theme and laboratory's decision, direction of graduation research, graduation research, field decision at the time of employment etc. In addition, understand the position of each lesson planned to be learned or planned in the future, grasp the purpose of learning and improve motivation for learning.

授業の概要
/Course outline
  Students who started learning computer science and engineering tend to understand their studies as "Computer science and engineering is like programming, processing with command line interface, web browsing," and so on.  Yet studies of computer science and engineering are broader and deeper than that.

  To purse students’ study efficiently, students must understand what topics they are going to learn in this university and exposure to the breadth of subjects of computer science and engineering early. This class introduces such subjects.

  In this class, students can obtain a perspective of computer science and engineering, and the perspective helps to understand relevance and inter-relationships of subjects students going to learn in this university.

*To enroll in this course, students must first register to the Creativity Development Program through the dedicated registration form.

Creativity is the ability to generate new and useful things. It is especially indispensable in generating original and novel ideas. Each person has the talent to innovate. To demonstrate creativity, however, it is necessary to possess knowledge of the creative process and supporting methods. It is also necessary to regularly practice in the use of that knowledge.
 In this course, beginners of creative activity will work on specially tailored themes to experience and understand the nature of creativity and its process through lectures and practical exercises. Students will work in groups while assisting each other in a collegial atmosphere. In the practical exercises, student groups will work on themes taken from practical existing problems and propose novel and useful solutions/ideas.
This course is an intensive course offered for several consecutive days during the summer holidays. Depending on the theme of the exercise, the class will be held at an off-campus facility. Attendance of all days is required. Furthermore, capacity is limited depending on the theme and venue. Please be advised that in case applicants exceed the capacity, lecturers will select students considering their enrollment in related courses, etc. The themes and venue for AY2019 will be announced around June.

/Grading method/criteria
Grading of this course is combination of quizzes (2nd-14th lectures) and technical reports (Unit 1-5), whose ratio are weighted as 40% and 60%.
Although group exercises are OK, each student must submit technical reports in Japanese or English. Contents would be different from each other (The same contents would be regarded as copied reports.)
Own PC is also available.
