MEDIA ARCHITECTURE – Three Courses Strands
1. Information Systems Course
The aim of this course is to foster scholars who can imagine, conceive and create new relationships between computers and humans while learning state-of-the-art knowledge from the two major technologies in system development - networks and databases.
Like humans who invented the automobile out of the desire to move faster on land, and aircraft from the desire to fly, this course strand aims to “enrich human lives” with the use and application of computer technologies. This course includes a number of lab courses and practices for the student to ‘discover’ novel possibilities – such as a new generation Internet, which enables people to exchange information and ideas with people over the world.
2. Advanced ICT Course
The aim of this course is to foster people who are skillful in advanced information and communication technology (ICT).
3. Information Design Course
This course aims to foster people interested in developing the field of Information Design by providing state-of-the-art knowledge and skills from the field of Information Science and Cognitive Science, in addition to Design Theory and Human Interface (the field of Information Representation).
What differentiates this course at FUN from other art based universities and design schools is that students learn the scientific dynamics concerning how senders’ messages are carried to message-recipients. Furthermore, this course offers a flexible curriculum that aims to improve the student’s sensibility in parallel with computing skills.
