Tackling societal problems in a global era — international development,
the environment, resources, and energy

We uphold the concept of co-innovation that comprehensively includes engineering approaches and humanities/social scientific approaches. We promote research on global issues, urban problems, the environment, resources, and international development on both the macro and micro scale.


Become an expert excelling beyond the boundaries of
science and engineering with global leadership

The Master's Program trains individuals to be global scientists and engineers with abilities that enable them to solve complex problems shared by global society, comprehend the systems of science and engineering without being bound by them, and contribute to the innovation of novel technology, values, and concepts.

In the Doctoral Program, we cultivate individuals to be global experts with the leadership and abilities to solve the complex problems faced by global society, based on the understanding of science and engineering systems without being bound by their existing framework.
