The student conducts research on a theme determined through discussions with his/her academic supervisor. While carrying out research, the student learns how to solve problems by applying specialist knowledge in his/her field as well as fundamental knowledge of other related fields that have been acquired through enrolling in various courses. In addition, the student writes a thesis and an abstract, and makes a presentation detailing his/her research findings.
By carrying out research, it is expected that the student will increase knowledge in his/her field and that he/she will acquire comprehensive skills to identify and develop solutions that will solve new and unsolved problems as well as communication ability.
By the end of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Understand the significance of research subjects, and judge their influence on nature, human and society.
2. Apply knowledge of civil and environmental engineering and related fields to solve problems.
3. Discover new subjects and solve them, using knowledge of civil and environmental engineering and related fields.
4. Work as an independent researcher and solve research subject systematically.
5. Explain concepts logically, discuss them and put them in writing.
