Master's Course

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental Engineering has been committed to the knowledge of creativity in order to make the better human life possible with harmonization of natural environment. This field produces high potential graduate students who can solve any kinds of problems on infrastructural design and construction, environmental and disaster prevention design, and any issues on geo and water environments with its conservation.

Educational Goals
Civil and Environmental Engineering has been committed to giving a well-organized curriculum relevant to the practice of civil and environmental engineering at graduate level. Two educational courses are provided in this department, which are 1) Civil and Environmental Engineering with Infrastructural Development, and 2) Regional Environmental Design. The former is the subject on the hardware in Civil and Environmental Engineering and the latter is that of software such as infrastructural design and disaster prevention management.

Educational Characteristics
There are four main groups in our department

  1. 1)Urban and Regional Design
  2. 2)Disaster Prevention
  3. 3)Infrastructural Development
  4. 4)Environmental Conservation

The educational and cutting-edge research programs promote the highest academic excellence, quality and competitiveness for graduate students. Our educational and research programs are broad and flexible to support the students to build the skills they need to excel and meet the challenges.
