The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics (KCGI) opened “Sapporo Satellite” in Sapporo, Hokkaido on April 1, 2012, and began education for the development of top leaders in the IT application field in Hokkaido.We have already notified the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.We will begin recruiting students from a wide range of fields, including working professionals, regardless of whether they come from arts or science backgrounds.
The Sapporo Satellite is located at 5-11 Odori-Nishi, Chuo-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan.Mr. Masaki Nakamura, President and Representative Director of Dezic, serves as Chairman of the Hokkaido Information System Industry Association (HISA) and Chairman of the National Association of Local Information Industry Associations (ANIA).Mr. Nakamura will be lecturing as a professor of practice.
At the Sapporo satellite, in addition to face-to-face lectures on site, real-time lectures will be held using the university's own state-of-the-art e-learning system and connecting to the main campus in Kyoto (7 Tanakamonzenmachi, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto City).Recorded lecture contents are stored on the server, and students can study anytime and anywhere via the Internet.Lecture times are also available on weekday evenings and Saturdays, making it possible for working people to study while they work.
Sapporo is the first time that KCGI has opened a satellite outside of Kyoto.
Since its opening in April 2004, KCGI has developed technical education in the IT field across two specialized fields of information technology and management, awarding graduates with a Master of Information Technology (Professional), the highest degree in Japan in the field of IT applications (terminal degree).
