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 pursue 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 the relevance and inter-relationships of subjects students are 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.
  For AY2022, this course is scheduled to be conducted from Aug. 16 to Aug. 19. The schedule may shift slightly depending on requirements of the venue. The fixed schedule will be announced by mid of July.

成績評価の方法・基準
/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.
