Course description and aims

The purpose of this lecture is to learn the basic methods of facility planning for emergency and disaster situations as well as for normal situations. In addition to an overview of disasters such as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, landslides, and fires, students will learn how to recognize these risks and how to reflect them in facility planning through lectures and simple exercises. Students will also learn how to recognize the risks and how to reflect them in facility planning through lectures and simple exercises. Students will also understand the background of disaster prevention-related provisions in laws and regulations such as the Building Standards Law and the City Planning Law.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to acquire basic methods of facility planning considering not only in the usual situation but also in case of emergency or disaster.
