The New GIGA Program at SFC

The web site for Keio's new undergraduate program, Global Information and Communication Technology and Governance Academic Program (GIGA), is now up and running.

Starting in fall 2011, we'll be accepting freshmen into GIGA to study networking, novel computing systems, international relations, and all of the other fun things we do (including computer architecture and quantum computing, two of the things I teach), with the language of instruction to be English.
