Principles and Goals

To preserve our society and natural environment, and ensure the development of civilization, it is essential for appropriate measures to be taken against environmental problems, to create a country in harmony with nature, and to establish safe, secure urban systems and infrastructure that enable sustainable development. Our school teaches the fundamentals and applications of natural sciences; design, construction and maintenance of the infrastructure that underpins safe and comfortable living; measures against environmental problems related to air, water and land; measures for the prevention of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and landslides; and methods of investigation, analysis and design of urban systems and transportation systems.

Educational Goals

We aim to turn out graduates who are able to recognize their responsibility to develop infrastructure that is in harmony with the history, culture and nature of the local area, who have the practical skills to solve problems using their originality and ingenuity, who think flexibly from a wide perspective, and who make judgments and act appropriately according to the conditions. To that end, we place importance on teaching the humanities as well as the sciences, and the curricula of all the courses of our school meet the requirements for the civil engineering subjects prescribed by the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE).


The School consists of the following three courses, one of which is selected by students when they advance to the third year:

Civil Engineering Course

Covers the theories for the planning and design of a safe, comfortable country and infrastructure.

Environment and Disaster Prevention Course

Covers the scientific properties of environmental components such as water, air and land, as well as waste, and environmental management theories and skills. Students learn about actual natural disasters such as earthquakes, disasters due to rain, wind and snow, floods and landslides and preventative measures.

Urban and Transportation Design Course

Covers the features of regional systems, urban systems and transportation systems. Students investigate and analyze city planning in order to design vibrant cities.

Students are able to enroll in the subjects of fundamentals of architecture as their second major.


Civil Engineering Course

Design, construction and management of structures, properties of construction materials, fluid dynamics of water, ground properties

Environment and Disaster Prevention Course

Environmental management of water, air and land, analysis and management of natural disasters, analysis of waste properties and development of treatment methods

Urban and Transportation Design Course

Urban and transportation problems and countermeasures, analysis, control and management of transportation systems, structure of city landscapes and problems and countermeasures, barrier-free environments, theories and practice of participatory city planning
