Faculty of Urban Environmental Sciences
Fostering human resources who can realize vibrant cities where all can live happily
Based on observation and analyses, the Faculty of Urban Environmental Sciences clarifies the interactions among: (1) the natural environment, (2) humans, (3) materials, (4) energy, (5) information, and (6) man-made structures such a s buildings and automobiles. The Faculty of Urban Environmental Sciences was established to add a sustainability and environmental perspective to the study of engineering (including civil engineering, architecture, and construction), geography (focusing in particular on surveys of the natural environment), applied chemistry (from micro-level substances to energy and the wider environment), tourism science (emphasizing a multi-faceted approach to tourism that incorporates environmental, cultural and IT-based perspectives) and urban policy science (which seeks to develop solutions to urban problems from a contextual perspective).
In addition to the specialized knowledge pertaining to each of these areas, the Faculty also endeavors to cultivate the knowhow and skills needed to make a positive contribution toward the development of the techniques and methodologies that can help to solve environmental problems and foster sustainable development.
