The mission of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is to protect human lives and society from earthquakes, tsunamis, and floods, to prevent environmental pollution, and to build pleasant, safe and secure cities, countries, and towns. The Department uses high-performance simulation technology and advanced experimental facilities. Our curriculum covers a wide range of areas such as planning, design, development, and creating systems for use. We teach basic engineering expertise related to the maintenance and operation of social infrastructure, and basic knowledge related to the natural sciences. The Department develops individuals who, based on an understanding of the effects civil engineering technology has on natural and social environments, pursue the preservation and utilization of the natural earth, and rationally form, maintain, and manage high-quality social capital.
Welcome to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Build and manage social infrastructure such as roads and rivers. Protect human lives and society from earthquakes, tsunamis, and flood damage. Create pleasant, prosperous cities and countries. Solve environmental issues, from regional problems such as air, water, and soil pollution to global issues such as climate change. Our mission is ambitious and diverse. We educate advanced engineers and researchers who can display leadership and sketch out a sustainable future not only through lectures, but also extensive experiments and practical training courses.
