Course Description

This course provides various kinds of engineering issues related to atmospheric environment and solid wastes management in English, which cover fundamental knowledge, the latest technologies and regional application examples. These lectures, English presentations by students, and discussions enhance English capability and internationality of students. The course is conducted in simultaneous distance-learning from Kyoto University, or from remote lecture stations in University of Malaya, and Tsinghua University. For the distance-learning, a hybrid system is used, which consists of prerecorded lecture VIDEO, VCS (Video conference system) and SS (slide sharing system). The students are requested to give a short presentation in English in the end of the lecture course. This course may improve students’ English skill and international senses through these lectures, presentations, and discussions.

Grading

Evaluate by class attendance, Q&A and presentation.
