Along with recent computerization and technological innovations, most of the machines in common use, such as household appliances, humanoid robots and hybrid cars, are equipped with some kinds of embedded microcomputer systems. Unlike general-purpose computer systems, embedded systems are designed to deal with the growing sophistication and complexity of electric/electronic devices. By installing a developed software, embedded systems can dramatically increase the productivity of these devices. Electronically-controlled products, including household, industrial, and medical equipment, generally contain the embedded systems.
Department of Intelligent System Engineering offers courses in the embedded systems, as well as in the basics of software/hardware technologies, with the aim of developing engineers who excel in utilizing information and communication technology.
