Human life is composed of the fundamental elements food, clothing, and housing. Architecture is directly related to “housing”. In addition, Architecture has a close relationship with human society because it forms cities and the environment.
Thus, architectural engineers must strive to create comfortable and beautiful living spaces that are harmonized with climate and nature. They must also pursue both safety and comfort, and improve quality of life. Furthermore, they must deal with urban problems, environmental problems, and the rapidly aging society. Additionally, they are responsible for saving human lives from natural disasters. They make use of their knowledge not only in architecture but also in other fields such as mechanical engineering and information technology.
To develop engineers who can accomplish these missions, the architecture course aims to nurture practical engineers who:
– Recognize the relationship between architecture and society, and contribute to safe, comfortable and attractive living environments.
– Deal with current social issues such as urban problems, environmental problems and aging society problems.
– Acquire knowledge related to architecture and engineering in order to apply it to community needs.
Therefore, this course welcomes students with the following qualities.
1) Students who are interested in studying various academic fields including social science and fine arts, as well as mathematics and science.
2) Students who are interested in house building and community planning.
3) Students who are willing to contribute to society through architecture.
1) To develop engineers with both basic academic knowledge and technical skills related to architecture.
2) To develop practical engineers who recognize the relationship between architecture and society, and contribute to safe, comfortable and attractive living environments.
3) To develop engineers who acquire knowledge of architecture and engineering, and respond to the needs of communities including urban problems.
