Department of Urban Environmental Design and Engineering (Formerly the Department of Civil Engineering)

 From the year 2010, the Department of Civil Engineering changed its name to the Department of Urban Environmental Design and Engineering.
 “Civil engineering” mainly deals with the engineering of infrastructure development such as bridges, roads, and dams.
 “Architecture” mainly deals with design and engineering of the living environment such as residential houses and buildings.
 The mission of both studies is to provide well-assured environmental infrastructure in which people can lead a safe and comfortable social life.
 In addition to subjects associated with civil engineering and architecture, the new department provides students with environmental biotechnology-related subjects that deal with global warming, destruction of the ecosystem and other environmental problems faced by modern society.
 Through well-organized theoretical and practical approaches, students will acquire both basic and advanced technological education in civil engineering, architecture, and environmental biotechnology fields as well as a sense of ethics as an engineer.
 The new department aims to develop active civil engineers who deeply understand the importance of harmonious coexistence of nature and humans from a global perspective.
