School of Earth,
Today solving global environmental problems is an indispensable task in various
industrial fields in various industrial fields in human society.
Being able to deal with such tasks requires the training of engineers who can act on their own initiative.
The traditional vertical division in educational research organizations in each specialized field makes
it difficult to adequately deal with the tasks and solve issues related to the global environment.
At this school the three fields of energy, environment protection and disaster prevention,
and advanced materials are combined to promote characteristic research from a new angle which is globally
applicable through comprehensive efforts of cooperating faculty members in these fields. In addition,
by teaching students to acquire knowledge, skills and technology that can contribute to solving global
environmental problems from various aspects centered on the above three fields, the school aims to train
students who can independently discover the process from “excavation” to “solution” of the tasks
and who can solve not only national issues, but also global issues in the fields of energy,
resources, global environment etc.
