Information Technology Center
Constructing a Leading-Edge Campus-Wide IT System
By taking full advantage of state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Kansai University Information Technology Center (IT Center) provides broad supports for study and research as well as school affairs. Students access websites on a daily basis for a variety of reasons such as writing reports, scientific computing, class registration and job seeking. The use of personal computers in a safe and comfortable Internet environment has become indispensable for students and faculties. To meet the needs of users, PCs are available along with a help desk at the Center. In addition, there are wireless access points set up on campus allowing students to use their own devices and access the university network.
Supporting Education and Research in a Global Network Environment in the ICT Era
KAISER, Kansai University's gigabit science information network, has been established with the aim of providing support for advanced research and education, and it is available at all five of the university's campuses (Senriyama, Takatsuki, Takatsuki Muse, Sakai and Umeda). The university connects to SINET5, which is a science information network operated by the National Institute of Informatics (NII) as a Japanese academic backbone network. The network is used to collaborate with research institutes both inside and outside the university, as well as to provide high level education through the use of multimedia tools.
