The Computer Science English Program fosters the development of qualified researchers in interdisciplinary computer science.

This program is for those earning the Master of Engineering degree at the Department of Computer Science in the Graduate School of Systems and Information Engineering.

Until 2013, the Computer Science Department, together with the Center for Computational Sciences, offered the "G30 Computational Science English Program". That program aimed at developing skilled researchers on the fields of High Performance Computing, including parallel numerical algorithms, parallel programming, and optimization of large-scale computing environments.

Starting in 2014, the "G30 Computational Science English Program" has changed into the "Computer Science English Program". In its new form, the program aims to cover a broader area than before.

  • A total of at least 30 credits must be earned, including 12 mandatory credits from the three Common Courses and at least 18 credits from the Elective Courses. Courses held within the Graduate School (including Campus-wide Courses for Graduate Students) may all be deemed Elective Courses, with no special restrictions applied.
  • Up to 10 credits earned for courses completed in other graduate schools (including Campus-wide Courses for Graduate Students) may be included among the earned credits required for Course completion, subject to approval in advance by both the faculty advisor and the Chair of the Department.
  • The requirements for Course completion are the earning of at least 30 credits and successful completion of both the master's thesis and the final examination.
