This is a two-year program leading to a Master of Engineering degree. This course aims to cultivate human resources capable of managing civil infrastructures and addressing environmental issues in various countries, particularly in the developing countries of Asia and Africa. Issues such as how to achieve a stable supply of natural resources and harmonize human activities with the global environment; the development of fundamental key technologies that support public infrastructure and energy development; the creation and development of new versatile technologies and design methods concerning the construction, improvement, operation, and maintenance of public infrastructure and disaster mitigation measures, as well as technologies related to the exploration, development, and utilization of the natural environment, natural resources and energy. The experimental and theoretical integration and deployment of those technologies in the framework of computational mechanics and applied mechanics.
Dr. Tomomi Yagi
Associate Professor at the Bridge Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Civil and Earth Resources Engineering. He is an avid researcher of bridge aerodynamics.
In light of the major shift in the locus of public infrastructure development and resource development from Japan to other countries, we need to nurture highly-qualified engineers from overseas to produce engineers who can make broad contributions at the cutting-edge of conventional civil engineering, resource engineering, and environmental engineering. Our policy is to invite highly-accomplished researchers and corporate researchers from Japan and other countries to participate in seminar courses.
