Outline of lecture

Sustainable Development has been secured by a various technologies. In the course of Sustainable Engineering Technology, leading engineers and researchers will give lectures on a specific area which is crucial for sustainable development, such as, energy and environment, material production, and information technology. In addition to the lectures, the students will investigate the relation of their specialty to the specific area by various ways, including site visits, and give presentations on the investigation to share the knowledge with the students of different specialty in a seminar (Satellite Seminar).

Purpose of lecture

Sustainable Development has been secured by a various technologies. Through lectures and seminars with the discussions by the students of different disciplines, this course aims to train the students as 窶徂ighly educated, internationalized engineers窶 having a wide spectrum of technical knowledge from basics to their applications.
