In the Graduate Major in Urban Design and Built Environment, it is our goal to unravel the various complex problems faced by the cities and environments of today using rich imagination and cutting-edge technology. We conduct research for the creation of cities and environments which are resilient (are able to recover by themselves flexibly), encompassing many facets such as its safety, comfort, and culture. We also aim to develop individuals who will be able to undertake the work of building such future cities and environments.
In the Master's Program, we aim to cultivate students who, having acquired and combined the wide range of knowledge and technology required to understand relevant phenomena, can contribute to the creation, renewal, and effective use of resilient cities and environments.
In the Doctoral Program, we aim to develop individuals who will lead the creation, renewal, and effective use of the new cities and environments supporting our future, equipped with the ability and creativity to carry out advanced research independently in addition to the knowledge and technology developed in the Master's Program.
