The contents of the program have been updated with the latest knowledge and most advanced technologies from Japan and the world. It focuses on three fields, in which Japan has a superiority. 

  • The first is design, construction of transport infrastructure, such as bridges and highways, with modern technologies.
  • The second is planning, management and maintenance of infrastructure projects toward a sustainable development.
  • The third is the utilization of new advanced materials in construction. The program includes general knowledge, fundamental and specific knowledge.
  • The general knowledge courses help students with a broadened view of sustainability science about society and environment. Then the fundamental courses help them accumulate knowledge and core skills related to the field of Infrastructure Engineering. From these knowledge foundation, students can carry out in-depth research in the fields mentioned above.

More than 50% of program’s lecturers come from the University of Tokyo and other prestigious universities in Japan. The program also aims at enhancing practical skills for students through experience in modern laboratories, as well as through a three-month internship in Japan.
