Department of Geoscience
Natural Hazard Engineering
Research and education in the Department of Geoscience is based on geology and some aspects of engineering geology. The aims of the department are: (1) to encourage systematic understanding of earth materials and resources, (2) to promote better understanding of the mutual relationships among humanity, living things, and the earth from geological viewpoints, and (3) to establish effective prevention engineering against natural hazards based on a wide knowledge of geological processes and environmental changes.
Our education programs are aimed at producing high-level scientists and engineers in the earth sciences and related fields. Field work and practical skills are important components of our undergraduate courses.
