Freedom and challenge characterize IIS. Here, an intellectual climate where graduate students are treated as independent researchers has taken its roots. Students can enjoy various support from their supervisors and lab members, and at the same time, they can engage in discussions with faculty and researchers on an equal footing. If necessary, they can also go seek outside resources such as experts and the general public on their own. In short, the students at IIS have many opportunities to act freely and grow with their own initiative. While IIS covers almost all fields of engineering, it is smaller in size and more closely-knit compared to the Graduate School of Engineering. Moreover, at IIS, students can be close to the faculty, industries, and the international community, enabling them to be daily exposed to diverse values and research achievements. The IIS community has more than 1000 members, consisting of some 300 faculty and staff and some 750 graduate students. Building on our pursuit of academic truth, together, let us bring innovation to solve various issues in society.
