For Prospective Students
Have you ever considered what the world will be like in
10 or 20 years? We currently face many pressing issues, such as global
warming, terrorism, H1N1 influenza, and low birthrate and longevity,
but the desire for a long and secure life is shared by all of us.
Civil engineering is vital to continue living a secure, safe, and comfortable life.
It is a form of integrated engineering aimed at to solving a wide range of problems, such as the development of technology to protect society from natural disasters; to plan, design, and maintain infrastructure vital to life, like water supply, electricity, roads, railways, ports, and airports; and to devise a system to construct a livable environment. Civil engineers who specialize in social infrastructure are indispensable to our society for as long as we live. We sincerely hope that the young people become interested in this field and join the world of civil engineering.
To the first-year underground students
The first-year undergraduate students seem to lack the
requisite knowledge to understand education research and its
characteristics related to the course subjects, because their
curriculum mainly comprises of general subjects. The website of the
Civil Engineering Course will acquaint you with the wide range of areas
that are covered and the great contribution that it makes to the
The Civil Engineering Course involves education and the conduct of research on subjects related to human beings and society in terms of urban restoration, environmental preservation, protection and mitigation of disaster, and creation management and ranging from various phenomena in the global environment to the development of a sustainable community; it fosters many competent engineers and researchers.
I am sure that you will be able to find an area of interest for your specialization for your future in the Civil Engineering Course. We look forward to the transfer of aspiring students.
Students are not allowed to transfer to the Civil
Engineering Course until they advance to the third year. Therefore,
they are required to receive education and conduct research for at
least two years after admission, or to study for four years if they
advance to the first stage of the doctoral course, in the Civil
Engineering Course and the Civil Engineering Division.
Students will become accustomed to the atmosphere of the Civil Engineering Course during the two or four years at the university and will be prepared to venture into the professional world. Transfer may be a better option than admission to the graduate school, as it will provide the students with the opportunity to attend classes and work on their graduation and master theses, in addition to acquiring diverse basic and professional skills.
In the case of a transfer, students will not be disadvantaged in employment opportunities and advancement to the next stage of education. Every student can achieve his or her goal by working hard and being active in taking up challenges.
