Origin of Our Logo


The progress of a student is portrayed as a fanning bouquet of flowers, presenting the educational offering of our program.
In the bouquet, the flowers offered through the Minor, which consists of reinforcement of fundamental knowledge (Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science) and development of basic skills for creating innovation as a future global leader, surround a core flower of the expertise in the Major. We expect the students to make the flowers bloom in future by themselves after creating their own bouquets through our program.
