The role that is demanded of civil engineers has shifted rapidly from construction of civil infrastructures to the development and maintenance/management of a sustainable social infrastructure that takes the current natural and social environments into consideration.
This is why the educational goal of this department is to train professionals who meet the following requirements: "Civil engineers possessing basic knowledge, as well as rich adaptivity and expansivity"; "Civil engineers capable of working independently while possessing a sense of ethics and an environmental perspective"; and "Civil engineers who have the ability to act, and are trusted".

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Structural Engineering / Applied Mechanics

    Bridges and many other structures are indispensable for civilized life. Structural engineering helps not only to design and construct these structures but also maintain them rationally. Further, applied mechanics engages in basic research providing the mathematical and theoretical foundation for structural engineering.

    Kimura Research Group / Saeki Research Group / Touhei Research Group

  • Concrete engineering/Construction material management

    The consumption of concrete follows that of water. Concrete is absolutely necessary for a social infrastructure which realizes a safe and comfortable life. We consider the design, construction, maintenance and management of concrete structures, as well as the effective use of industrial waste.

    Kato Research Group

  • Analysis and Experiments Relating to Soil and Foundations

    Tunnels, long-span bridges, dams, high-rise buildings, seaside landfills and other social infrastructure around us stand on various types of ground. Using theory and experiments, we explain engineering problems related to the ground.

    Kikuchi Research Group / Tsukamoto Research Group

  • Hydro-meteorology/ Flood disaster and river environment

    A large number of problems related to the environment and disaster prevention involving air and water have come to light, including air pollution, water pollution, flooding, and giant tsunami. We uncover them by on-site observations, experiments and numerical simulations.

    Nakayoshi Research Group / Nihei Research Group

  • Environmental Engineering

    Have you ever thought about your surroundings? All of it is the environment. Do you know where wastewater is flowing? Do you know what trash is? The study of all these things is environmental engineering.

    Deguchi Research Group

  • Infrastructure Planning / Transportation Planning

    Transport infrastructure such as roads and railways needs to be planned to make sure that people can travel comfortably and efficiently. We look into how transportation system is planned and designed, and how it is realized and evaluated.

    Terabe Research Group / Yaginuma Research Group

  • Wide-Area Environments / Processing and Analysis of National Land Information

    Remote sensing is continuing to evolve as an earth observation technology. This field works on research tasks involving the processing and analysis of remote sensing data from satellite observations and the like.
