Organizational Restructuring Proposal

Reorganization Points

Reorganizing and Integrating Science and Engineering Studies

To better prepare students for a world of rapid technological advances, basic engineering studies in electrical/electronic and mechanical areas of the Faculty of Urban Liberal Arts will be combined with applied and general engineering studies of the Faculty of System Design and reorganized within the Faculty of Systems Design. In particular, computer science and biomechanical engineering will be strengthened to meet the extraordinary demand from society and industry.

Faculty of Urban Liberal Arts to Become Four Faculties

To more clearly communicate the content of education and research in specific areas of study within the Faculty of Urban Liberal Arts, and to more clearly indicate what type of graduates are produced, the Faculty of Urban Liberal Arts will be reorganized into four separate faculties̶the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, and Faculty of Science.

Urban Science and Policy Reorganized

Urban science and policy studies within the Faculty of Urban Liberal Arts and Graduate School of Urban Environmental Sciences will be reorganized to draw upon the unique strengths of each and to train students to resolve increasingly complex urban issues; education and research will also be further developed within an integrated humanities and science program.

Graduate Schools to be Reorganized

The graduate schools will be reorganized to match the new structure of the undergraduate faculties, and interdisciplinary programs will be introduced to foster talent that combines broad-based knowledge.
