Course content
In order for the students to understand the current problems in the civil engineering field and to obtain knowledge about newly developed or developing technologies to overcome such problems, faculty members in several fields in the civil engineering department (e.g. planning, survey, environment, fluid mechanics, soil mechanics, concrete and steel structures) give lectures on hot topic in their respective fields. Each professor will give class in English.
Purpose of class
The objective of this class is that through the classes given by all professors in civil engineering department about their own research field and field trips to fabrication site or factory and so on, students can understand the current problems in the civil engineering field and to obtain knowledge about newly developed or developing technologies to overcome such problems.
In addition, student can learn technical English terms through this class.
Goals and objectives
  1. Understand the current problems in civil engineering field
  2. Obtain the knowledge about newly developed technologies in civil engineering field
  3. Obtain the methodology to solve the problems in civil engineering field
