Seeking coexistence with nature
and a safe society
With the rapid development of science and technology, our lives have become more convenient and comfortable than ever before. However, due to the huge growth and increasing complexity of both science and technology, understanding the interplay of these two areas from a big-picture perspective has become increasingly difficult. For anyone who aspires to become an engineer, it is essential that his or her learning span multiple technical fields, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, and civil engineering. In addition to engineering knowledge, an understanding of environmental safety and energy is a key requirement, one which demands deep insight and international communication skills, as well as a sound grounding in the social and human-health sciences.
Environmental safety engineering is a newly established field of fully integrated engineering based on interdisciplinary knowledge and techniques. Through four-year programs of study and research, the department aims to produce “green engineers” who have acquired the theoretical and practical skills and techniques necessary to meet the challenges presented by an implementation of the concept of sustainable manufacturing and who combine unique perspectives on environmental safety with advanced knowledge in a variety of technical fields in order to attain goals which will improve the world we all live in, such as ensuring product safety, preventing industrial and other types of accidents, and securing a long-term supply of stable energy resources.
Environmental Safety Course
Students acquire an understanding of laws related to safety as well as techniques to reduce society’s current impact on the environment. The course also cultivates a student’s ability to communicate such accomplishments effectively within a worldwide professional environment.
Sustainable Energy Course
Students acquire knowledge of next-generation energy sources in order to promote harmony with nature while simultaneously continuing a sustainable pace of growth and development.
