Department of Communications Engineering

The advent of the advanced information society has created an endless cycle of expectations for information technology enabling larger-capacity, faster-speed, and ubiquitous services.

Following in the proud Tohoku University tradition that produced the Yagi-Uda antenna and made major discoveries in optical communications, the Department of Communications Engineering is engaged in leading-edge education and research, broadening the fields of study from computer networks to human interface and human communication.

The Department has laboratories in the fields of Intelligent Communication Network Engineering, Communication Systems Engineering, and Wave Communication Engineering, as well as cooperative laboratories in Transmission Engineering, all contributing to the further growth of the advanced information society.

Why Choose Us?

The Group of Electrical Engineering, Communications Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Information Engineering (The ECEI Group) involves approximately 80 laboratories and 200 faculty members including three graduate schools as well as Research Institute of Electrical Communication, making it a major center for electrical communication and information studies in Japan. Leading-edge researches are being conducted in collaboration with government and industry.

Graduate students receive substantial support, and students starting from the Master's phase of their Doctoral program studies are actively involved in academic presentations overseas and in submissions to international journals.

In the overall electrical and information education of Tohoku University, the Department of Communications Engineering is responsible for graduate school education and research in communications engineering fields. In the well-equipped research environment that the school’s tradition has made possible, the Department is creating and realizing the human communications of the future in diverse research fields that include communications systems engineering, human interface, innovative wireless communications, ultra-high-speed optical communications, ubiquitous communications systems, ultrasonic wave engineering, and photonics.
