This is a two-year program leading to a Master of Engineering degree. The department aims to make advances in social analysis technology utilizing urban engineering, traffic engineering, and environmental system engineering to analyze human activities in cities. Research is conducted in urban planning and traffic planning to realize safe and sustainable urban systems. Advances in urban infrastructure relating to building foundations and rivers are examined. The department is working to establish methodologies and engineering techniques for the comprehensive management of urban systems, incorporating assessments of the sustainability of cities based on cutting-edge research and an interdisciplinary perspective that embraces the social sciences and humanities. Advanced information communication technology is integrated with social infrastructure technology in order to realize sustainable, safe, and internationally competitive urban systems that can ensure a high quality of life. Lectures and seminar-based subjects are designed for students to independently plan, implement, summarize and present research results from project surveys and company seminars.
