Chiba University announced that it will expand the entrance examination method for "jumping in" that can be studied at the university from the age of 17. From the spring of 2020, in the Information Engineering Course of the Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, we will start accepting "jump-in students" through preliminary results, assignments, and second interviews for the "Japan Information Olympics".

 Chiba University aims to develop advanced IT human resources who have acquired cutting-edge technologies such as big data processing and artificial intelligence, and will provide specialized education in information science to "jumping students" who are good at programming from the first year. ..

 In 1998, Chiba University accepted Japan's first jump-in student under the current school system. From 2020, jump-in enrollment utilizing the Japan Information Olympics will be introduced in the Information Engineering Course of the Faculty of Engineering, Department of Comprehensive Engineering.The target is second-year high school students who are good at programming and have a strong interest in everything from the basics of information engineering to a wide range of applications.

 After enrollment, in the Information Engineering Course of the Department of Comprehensive Engineering, we will provide education to new students from the first year (1 years old) so that they can become researchers in related fields.Normally, students are assigned to the laboratory and carry out the latest research from the 17th year (4 years old and over), but in the 21st and 1,2nd year, small-group education on information mathematics, which is the basis of programming, Experience the depth of information science through assignment exercises (PBL).

 In the third year, he will visit several laboratories and experience information science and its application to the real world, relationships with related fields, and expansion of basic fields.Then, in the 3th year, one laboratory will be selected, and the latest research will be conducted while discussing with the guidance of the instructor and graduate students.In addition to regular subject lectures, there are small-group seminar-style classes and overseas training for incoming students, providing an environment for developing excellent abilities and qualities from an early stage.

 Chiba University's jump-in admission system (= advanced science program) is a system that promotes the discovery of "young talent" and the development of scientists by enrolling in the university one year earlier than usual after completing the second year of high school. It started in 2 and accepted Japan's first jump-in student.Currently, it is held in 1998 classes in 4 faculties: Faculty of Science, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Horticulture, and Faculty of Letters.We have also set up Japan's only promotion center specializing in admissions.So far, 14 graduates have been produced.Of these, 71 (61%) went on to graduate schools such as Chiba University, the University of Tokyo, and Kyoto University, and famous overseas graduate schools such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ratgars University. There is.
