Course Description

Civil Engineering is the study which provides the essential technology and knowledge to improve social infrastructures. In this course, the fields of Civil Engineering are explained clearly in terms of how technologies and knowledge, which have been evolved as academic disciplines, have been applied and integrated to realize a safe, comfortable and sustainable society. It is expected to learn the essence of Civil Engineering, especially on expected roles of civil engineers including engineering ethics. Also, lecturers are invited from outside of school.

Grading

Grade is given based on the examination (or reports) and attendance to class.

Course Goals

To understand how technologies and knowledge developed in Civil Engineering can be applied in the field of development of infrastructure, disaster management and mitigation, creation of environment and so on; to understand challenges of Civil Engineering and its directions of development, through recent research trends.
