Civil Engineering

We foster engineers to design cities that are resilient to disasters and eco-friendly.

"Civil engineering" is an engineering discipline that designs public facilities forming cities and supporting our daily lives such as parks, roads, bridges, monorails, tunnels, airports, ports, rivers, dams, and coasts. "Design" is an ability to propose optimal solutions that meet the needs of society under the constraints of public welfare, environmental conservation, and economic efficiency by utilizing a wide range of knowledge and advanced specialized skills to challenge. In this course, it means the ability to create safe, secure, and comfortable cities that are resilient to disasters and eco-friendly.

The Civil Engineering course fosters engineers who can contribute to the creation of sustainable social infrastructures by acquiring systematized expertise in the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of social infrastructure facilities. The Civil Engineering course also fosters engineers who can contribute to solving interdisciplinary problems related to disaster prevention against climate change and natural disasters by acquiring specialized knowledge that integrates advanced methods such as field science, experimental science, and computational science. Furthermore, we promote education and research utilizing the unique characteristics of subtropical, island, and oceanic regions in Japan to foster engineers who can contribute to global society.
