What is the significance of the Bespoke curriculum?
In a mere half-century, from the dawn of the IT and computer era in the 1960s to the present day, the IT field has advanced tremendously, transforming the shape of work and technology. In tandem with this transformation, the knowledge and skills required of students of IT and the problems they are required to address have transitioned and diversified. To cite one example, applications for smartphones have to be planned and designed for applications based on far different assumptions about use cases than for traditional PCs, such as connections to cameras, sensors and cloud services. The greatest opportunities for the debut of innovative technologies and solutions in IT lie beyond the bounds of current convention, where conventional concepts no longer apply.
In order to respond to students' future visions and diverse needs, the university has established a "Bespoke Curriculum" that allows students to structure their curriculum based on a flexible selection of subjects according to their own learning objectives, without being bound by existing concentrations or industrial fields.
The field of IT is sure to continue to grow and diversify across multiple fronts. It is by no means impossible for enterprising people to create new careers by opening new fields. The Bespoke Curriculum is a course of study designed to allow students to construct and study a unique curriculum that goes beyond existing concepts by making the most of the generality (versatility) of ICT, which can be applied to all fields and can be combined in various ways.
