Curriculum

Graduate Schools/Programs

Graduate Program in Civil and Environmental Engineering
Educational Objectives

We produce civil and environmental engineers and researchers with comprehensive, practical skills, who are able to plan, design and construct social infrastructure in Japan and abroad, while maintaining harmony with nature, and evaluate the effects of their work. Also, we train our students to become engineers who think and act for themselves, and who are able to accurately judge social situations, as well as create safe, secure and comfortable social environments.

Educational Objectives of Subjects

Fundamental/Applied/Module Subjects
1. Advanced knowledge and application skills in civil and environmental engineering
2. Task-setting and problem-solving skills with regard to technical issues in civil and environmental engineering
3. Investigation methods of conventional technology that involve documents and field studies
4. Abilities required in society such as language skills for communicating in Japan and abroad, and leadership skills as engineers and researchers

Structural Design
Students learn rational methods of design, and study the construction and maintenance of structures using various materials in order to design structures based on advanced structural and geotechnical engineering.

Aquatic Engineering
Students learn about the aquatic circulation mechanism and characteristics in various regions, the relationship between recent global environmental changes and the increase in heavy rainfalls and floods and their forecast, estimation of the risks of water disasters, flow mechanisms of groundwater related to water pollution, preservation of coastal environments, and the mechanism of and methods of preventing nearshore currents and drift sand in order to respond to complicated aquatic environmental problems.

Use of IT Technology in Civil and Environmental Engineering
Students learn the technology related to the creation of a future ubiquitous society based on IT and ICT, methods of creating digital topography data and structures based on 2D, 3D and 4D location and time information, methods of construction, maintenance and real-time revision of efficient social infrastructure in order to construct and develop an advanced topographical information society.

Construction Management
Students learn the methods of planning, constructing and managing social infrastructure in Japan and abroad, as well as disaster prevention in order to identify problems at every stage of construction projects and present solutions.
