In Japan, we have so many natural disasters. We need comprehensive countermeasures to prevent and reduce disasters in terms of both disaster-resistant hardware (structures) and human-environmental friendly software (disaster-prevention training, environmental awareness). Meanwhile, the structure of society is changing rapidly. In rural areas, besides the decentralization of public facilities, depopulation is advancing due to the falling birthrate and aging population. We need to consider what kind of social structure is suitable for the community and the environment.
Now, having experienced the unprecedented Great East Japan Earthquake, we aim to educate and research of the three main fields in our course, “construction”, “environment” and “disaster prevention”.
We strive to foster engineers and researchers who will work for the establishment of the safe and secure society and a creation of a sustainable society that is both human and environmentally friendly.

Field of Environmental Engineering

Environmental problems, such as air, water, and soil, are coming to the surface and there is a great burden on the environment. Furthermore, there is a huge amount of challenges to build a recycling-based society where humans and nature can coexist. In the field of environmental engineering, students will study a variety of environmental subjects, including environmental engineering and resource recycling engineering.

Field of Construction Engineering

For disaster-resistant hardware, durable structures and materials must be used, and long-term diagnosis, repair and reinforcement, and maintenance and management are essential. In the field of construction engineering, students will study a variety of construction engineering, including structural mechanics, construction materials and facility maintenance and management engineering.

Field of Disaster Prevention Engineering

We must increase our knowledge about disaster prevention and town planning for the recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake and sustainable regional development. In the field of disaster prevention engineering, students will study a variety of disaster prevention engineering, including urban planning studies, water and landslide disaster prevention engineering and regional recovery development exercises.

I enjoy everything of my studies, my club activity, and my part-time job

When I was a high school student I experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake, so I chose a major related to recovery from the disaster. I can learn a variety of fields that I’ll need to know as an engineer. I will be able to get a qualification as an associated professional engineer when I graduate. This is the strong point.
Besides studying hard, I also involve myself in club activity. I belong to a mandolin club and we practice hard three times a week. I get really busy when we have a recital when I’m also busy with assignments and tests.
But after I get over it, the sense of accomplishment is even better. What I enjoy about university life is being able to experience many different things, such as studying, club activity, and part-time jobs.

Career Paths

Civil infrastructure supports our social lives itself. It consists of transportation networks such as roads, railroads, airports and ports as well as water, gas, electricity and communications. Experts who can plan, design, build, maintain and manage the infrastructure while considering the environment are needed for a safe, secure, affluent life in our communities. Graduates will be outstanding in a variety of fields.

General contractor / construction and environmental consultants / infrastructure / transportation / high-ranking civil servants of engineering / go on to graduate school, etc.
