Educational Policy

The Department  of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering aims the creation of the safe sustainable society with energy in harmony with the environment. Specifically, targeting the biotopes on the earth, structures therein and the resources underground as research object, we challenge technical innovation for construction of basic social infrastructure, effective utilization of resources and energy and creation of safe and sustainable global society. We foster practices based on such technologies and thorough basic skills and practical applied skills necessary to be engaged on research and development, cultivate abilities to explore new technologies and human resources that can address flexibly the complexity in the society from international and multilateral prospective.

The fundamental policy of the Departmentis to provide a thorough basic education and cultivate real-world skills. We also aim to provide an education which nurtures the ability to discover new technologies and develop flexible thinking skills. Ultimately, we aim to cultivate experts who can utilize intellectual, information and communication technologies in new ways. Our approach to education prioritizes information analysis, with a focus on computational dynamics. We ensure that our students master the basic and rational technologies that will enable them to become leading engineers who can contribute to the public infrastructure.

In light of the major shift in the locus of public infrastructure development and resource development from Japan to other countries, we are well aware of the need to nurture highly-qualified engineers from other countries to produce engineers who can make broad contributions at the cutting-edge of conventional civil engineering, resource engineering, and environmental engineering. It is our policy to actively invite highly-accomplished researchers and corporate researchers from Japan and other countries to participate in seminar courses that are held by the Department of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering to discuss the latest developments and societal needs.
