Department of Environmental Engineering

Practical learning program directed toward real environmental affairs

Comprehensive study in environmental problems in regional and global environment and a series of practical learning programs and field work help students acquire specific skills directly applied to real environmental affairs. The OIT Department of Environmental Engineering operates in four fields: resource & energy, urban metabolism, nature harmonization, and general skills for engineers.

Become governmental officers and environmental planners

Our education program trains personnel who are skilled in making assessments, planning buildings, and implementing governmental programs in the field of regional environments and waste management. The program covers ecological, social, and economical knowledge of which is indispensable for governmental and planning workers.

Become front-line environmental engineers

Our education program trains engineers who have expertise in environmental solutions such as the development, design, operation and control of environmental energy devices and sanitary engineering plants. Special emphasis is placed on developing analytical skills that are fundamental to solving difficult problems concerning water and gas treatment, waste disposal and pollution, and renewable energy.

Graduate Course in Environmental Engineering

From specialist to researcher

Building on the fundamental skills and knowledge gained through the 4-year university experience, the graduate course in Environmental Engineering provides graduate students with further exclusive study. The aim of the master's and doctoral courses is to train specialists who will solve crucial environmental problems, and act as innovative researchers, respectively.

Environmental solutions

The graduate course in Environmental Engineering involves fields of environmental energy, natural environment, resource recycling, and environmental system. The course focuses on global environmental affairs, environmental planning, urban environmental systems, water environmental issues, and techniques for recycling material resources and renewable energy.

Coupling of education and research on current issues

Up-to-date, practical issues are environmental engineering targets, and professors and graduate students naturally work together on current topics. The evolution of critical issues, which depends on social needs and conditions, is also studied.
