The teaching goal of the department aims at the balanced learning between information technologies and management concepts. From the aspect of information technology, students are expected to learn modern computer technologies such as object-oriented programming, multimedia, high-speed networks, database design, and software engineering. Among management-related courses, students can take such courses as production/operation management, financial management, personnel management, and marketing. In undergraduate program, the fundamental knowledge of information technology and management are provided, while the training of the basic skills are offered. In addition, the students are requested to accomplish laboratory training courses and mandatory project for one year so as to practice and apply the knowledge they learned.
Three major aspects of courses related to information management are developed and studied: information technology and applications, enterprise systems and management, and quantitative computing and information security. Based on these research areas three research groups were formed with faculty members and graduate students. Diversified research topics and proliferated cross-group projects have become the major research features for the department. Courses include multimedia systems, grid computing, wireless networks, data mining, object-oriented software engineering, information security, system simulation, performance evaluation, operation research, knowledge management, finance management, and quantitative management.
