The Course promotes an in-depth understanding of Earth Science and provides advanced studies on frontier topics in Geoscience based on Geology. Students can specialize in one out of three research fields:
1) Geoscience: Research on constituents of the earth’s interior such as rocks, minerals and earth resources and the circulations of material, including ore and resource formation processes.
2) Geoenvironmental Science: Research on formation processes of strata and geological structures in sedimentary basins, environmental geology of estuaries and deltas as well as historical geology and paleontology.
3) Geo-disaster Science: Research on mechanical properties of soil, rocks, and rock mass, geotechnical properties of alluvial deposits and their environmental evaluation, groundwater simulation, and natural hazards.
Environmental and Sustainability Sciences
The Environmental and Sustainability Sciences (ESS) course aims at contributing to the realization of a prosperous society for which nature and humankind truly coexist. The ESS course provides students with capabilities necessary to understand, evaluate, manage and preserve environmental resources ranging from matter to life. Students learn various approaches to cope with environmental issues with a solid sense of responsibility and ethics. Our graduates have many career opportunities ahead of them as researchers, teachers, engineers, and administrative officials who can lead community activities in an environmentally friendly manner.
The Chemistry Course offers comprehensive programs encompassing diverse fields of fundamental chemistry and applied chemistry including environmental chemistry, green and sustainable chemistry, and functional materials chemistry, in order to educate future engineers and researchers
In Architectural Design Course, researches on various issues related to urban planning, architectural planning, building structure, building environment and so on are conducted. This master’s degree program aims to nurture human resources who have creativity and judgment capability based on comprehensive perspective by providing students with scientific and technological knowledge and evaluation methodology of architectural fields through experiments and lectures.
By completing certain subjects of this course, students will be recognized to have a maximum of two years practical building-related experience which is required to be eligible for taking examinations of a first-class architect qualification.
We welcome all students who are interested in urban planning, architectural planning, building structure and building environment.
