The Faculty provides three interdisciplinary courses:

Media Information

"Media Information" area focuses on the theory and practice of media and communication technologies as well as their application in real-life settings such as home and school. Students learn to understand the issues of media and communication from linguistic, psychological, sociological, educational, social and cultural points of view. They also acquire technical skills in designing, producing, evaluating, and managing the development of interactive digital contents and services for the Internet and other media.

Social Information System

"Social Information System" area deals with the effective use and management of computer-based information systems in businesses and organizations. Students take a variety of courses, such as policy formulation, organizational behavior, management information, and innovation theories, through which they gain the ability to analyze business and organizational issues from an information point of view and find effective ways to design implement and manage information systems to meet the organization's tactical and strategic needs.

Computing

"Computing" area addresses the design and implementation of software systems, from small- to large-scale, from personal to organizational, and from centralized to distributed systems. It offers a variety of computer-science related courses, including computer architecture, networks, programming languages, algorithms, graphics and image processing, simulation, Web and mobile technologies, human-computer interaction, and artificial intelligence. Students gain technical, theoretical and practical understandings of information and communication technologies with particular emphasis on the symbiosis of the human and the computer.
