Faculty information

Carving out tomorrow’s world with media and information technology

Developments in digital technology mean we can create and access information with relative ease, anywhere and at anytime through the use of mobile phones etc. Companies now require people throughout their business who are capable of creating the necessary information, and making it user-friendly to search for and use. Students in the Faculty of Media and Information Resources will learn the latest in media technology and the expertise necessary to use media to create and utilize information.

The concept of ‘Information Resources’

Based on the concept that Information Resources refers to the creation, or extraction of necessary ‘information’, students use their major subjects to learn how to manage and utilize ‘information’ such as photos, graphics, video footage and other visual media, as well as audio media such as music and background sounds, library books, magazines, company records, archives and other recorded information, and actual things such as museum exhibits.

Three programs aimed at handling all kinds of changes to our information society

While these 3 programs cover a variety of different information resources, students can study not only their chosen specialist field but also related classes in the other two programs. For example, students can make a video in the Audio-Visual Media Program while at the same time taking a class from another program to learn how to distribute what they have created via a network, manage and store it. One of the main features of the Faculty of Media and Information Resource is that it offers a comprehensive focus from creation and distribution through to data storing and reutilization.

The sophisticated video equipment in the Video Studio allows students to learn about actual video creation through practical learning and hands-on experience.
