This course comprehensively presents various issues which have been charged to civil and environmental engineering to solve, for example, global environmental problems as well as local community planning problem. It also includes lectures on the latest initiatives in technology, policy, and planning theory.
Students will understand that civil and environmental engineering is an academic system concerned with the methodology of technologies and policies for constructing a secure, safe, and sustainable human society and the philosophy of planning.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
- View all the aspects included in civil and environmental engineering as one whole.
- Explain the basic technical, policy, and planning theories of civil and environmental engineering.
Civil and environmental engineering, Sustainability, Secure and safety, Planning theory

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Lecture materials will be provided at T2SCHOLA.
-Small quiz during the class (3%*14=42%)
-Three assignments (20%*3=60%)
Note 1: If the total sum exceeds 100%, the score will be rounded to 100%.
Note 2: Assignment categories are: Water and soil environment, Landscape and planning, Secure and safety
None in particular.
Not fixed office hours. Therefore, please contact the organizer or each lecturer in advance by email for the appointment.
