Graduate School of Creative Engineering
|Educational & Academic Purposes of the Graduate School of Creative Engineering
The Graduate School of Creative Engineering provides students with the opportunity to learn and acquire at a high-level the specialized knowledge and skills in the field of urban environmental engineering, which is a combination of all areas of architecture and design. In addition, the program seeks to educate professionals so that they maintain the ethical perspective and social responsibility of advanced specialized engineers and acquire the communicative ability and creativity as well as logical thinking and other knowledge aspects necessary for deducing solutions to problems, putting forth plans and proposals, and translating these into execution. During the two-year program, students acquire greater practical presentation and teambuilding skills that are put to use in the production process.

Master’s Program in Architecture
From a basis in architecture and architectural engineering that is supported by fundamental knowledge about creative engineering, students acquire even greater specialized knowledge through their study of various architectural fields as well as practical architectural and design methods. Furthermore, students gain practical skills as they create designs and give presentations in conjunction with their research. The program seeks to educate advanced engineers capable of being creative and taking the initiative to find solutions to global environmental problems as well as other issues facing the international community, which undergoes continuous change due to economic globalization and other trends.
Master’s Program in Civil and Environmental Engineering
Through the study of natural sciences, social sciences and other fields related to urban environmental engineering, students acquire greater specialized knowledge. As they pursue laboratory work and research activities that utilize knowledge gained, students develop advanced capability to take the initiative in finding problems with public infrastructure or other components necessary for people’s lives, then comprehensively and creatively utilize design and the urban environment to provide solutions to such issues through planning, designing, constructing as well as managing and maintaining various structures, which comprise our social infrastructure including urban facilities, environmental conservation facilities, and transportation facilities.
Master’s Program in Design
Through the systematic study of a variety of scientific methods for fostering the ability to act, ability to think and creating new things and mechanisms as well as digital fabrication and prototyping to realize ideas, students acquire more specialized knowledge. As they pursue fieldwork, lab work and research activities that put these concepts into practice, students develop the practical competencies of a designer embodied with a wealth of wisdom, technical capabilities, and creativity to foster the ability to act, ability to think as well as create mechanisms for independently finding issues and resolving them from within actual life and society.
