Laboratories and Academic Staff

The Department of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering was newly established in 2003 for conducting their missions by reorganizing Department of Civil Engineering and Department of Earth Resources Engineering. The Department, together with the simultaneously organized Department of Urban Management, Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering, comprises the Department System of Geosciences, which is closely connected with the Undergraduate School of Global Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering. The research and education activities in the Department of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering are interdisciplinary, comprehensive, and based on theory and practice in collaboration with other organizations in a number of specialized fields.

Concerning the sustainable development of the public infrastructure, we collaborate with the industry, and with the other related establishments such as the Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies, the Departments of Global Environmental Education and of Global Environmental Research, International Innovation Center, in the University. The Department of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering is placed to conduct on and off Campus joint projects, taking the advantage of the characteristics of the organization to promote creative, practical education through the advancement of collaborative researches.
