A Message from the President

Developing professional expertise and technique and "human power" to their full potential.

"Kobe Institute of Computing - College of Computing" is focusing on developing "human power" which is taken as "basic" for professionals: today's professionals must possess public morals, communication and management skills, and a sense of professionalism. The bottom line is to educate students to be socially acceptable as professionals. This is because "human power" is essential to make the most of their potential in practical situations, and will be an unfailing survival power for over 20, 30 years. Thus, the professional expertise and technique which education will add to this "basics" will have actual chances of being used in cooperation with the industrial world. Through having this practical experience in the industrial world, students will assimilate the expertise and skills obtained through education as their own skills, not as armchair knowledge. What is enabling this is the fact that "Kobe Institute of Computing - College of Computing" has a cooperative relationship with the industrial world which is starving for promising human resources. This ideal educational system consisting of "basic" , "specialty" and "practical achievement" is the culmination of the nearly 50 years of educating history of "Kobe Institute of Computing - College of Computing".

A Message from the Chief Director

Meeting new talents is great joy to me
At the time of the Institute's foundation, I was busy juggling technical research and teaching.

Looking back on the days of the foundation of the school in 1958, I feel overcome by deep emotion. In a rented classroom, I was the only teacher. Students were only a few more than 10. In this period, the word "electronic calculator" was generally used instead of the word "computer" . And, much worse than you can imagine, the computers in those days could break down so easily. In addition, the computer maker was located in Tokyo, so that maker's staff could not come at once to support us because of the distance between Tokyo and Kobe. Therefore, I decided to fix them on my own. The days of wrestling with computers began. However, this experience led me to perfectly comprehend the structure of the hardware of general-purpose computers. Shortly after, I started to make computers by myself. I bought necessary component parts and assembled them. However, this did not go as planned. Even though the speed of an electric circuit is theoretically correct, it does not work when the performance of the same standardized IC varies widely. I spent many days changing designs many times and assembling parts again and again. This story may sound unreal today, but it was almost impossible, back then, to find a treatise comprehensively describing the principles of computer operation in terms of both hardware and software. This fact is the social background on why the publication of my text, "Electronic Calculator-General Designing and Basic Programming" , received a big response in 1971.
