The role that is demanded of civil engineers has shifted rapidly from quantitative and efficient construction of civil engineering structures to the development and maintenance/management of a selective and 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

    To run civil engineering facilities properly, it is necessary to build bridges and many other structures. Structural engineering helps to construct these reasonably. 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 Structures / Civil Engineering Materials

    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, as well as the effective use of concrete 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

  • Environmental Hydraulics

    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

  • Roles and Planning of Transport Faclities / Facilities and Planning for Urban Areas

    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 social capital 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.
