Overview of the graduate program

[Program Outline]

The goal of the education in the department is to produce the engineers who can take the leadership in the sustainable development of the global society by utilizing the science and technology. The areas of their contributions include the industry, public works, information and communication technologies, and environment. Toward this goal, several unique components are integrated into the course: first, skills on project formulation and management are emphasized. In addition to the case method, the ongoing international development projects are used as the course materials for the analyses of the problems and their solutions. The skills provide the vision of the high level “problem solution” to the engineering students. Second, advanced knowledge in engineering fields is provided with the focus on the sustainable development. Third, internship and field work are provided as an elective course. Fourth, thesis writing provides an opportunity for the training to build the capacity as the engineer. The searching for solution for a specific development problem is emphasized in addition to technology itself. Therefore, a co-advisor from different engineering fields may be appointed on request. The weights of the curricula in international development and the engineering are about 3:7.

[Guide to Study – Master’s degree]

The student is required to study for two years and to get 30 credits to complete the Master course. One 2-credit course consists of fifteen 90-minutes lectures including examination. In addition, the student should submit the master thesis and pass the final examination. Among the 30 credits, 8 compulsory credits are obtained through the seminars and the laboratory activities, which are supervised by the advisor. At least 16 credits including above 8 credits should be the courses provided in the Department. Among the rest 14 credits, 4 credits should be the courses provided in other departments. In addition to 30 credits, the student can take the Minor certificate by getting 8 credits provided in a single department.

[Guide to Study – Doctoral degree]

The student is required to study typically for three years and to take the seminar credit in each semester. In addition, the candidate must complete and submit a thesis for the degree, and pass the final examination and evaluation of his/her thesis.
