As human beings that live on the limited environment we have on Earth, we must aim to coexist amidst our diverse natural world and its living beings while sustaining affluent human society. To do so, we must structure and construct all kinds of highly advanced artifacts and at the same time come up with ways to live so as to reduce and control environmental burdens on Earth and the risks to mankind. We are required to have a high level of ability to analyze the many phenomena contained in human society, reintegrate such information and to build upon them.
The education and research at the Division of Global Architecture are aimed to develop highly advanced expertise in systems and technologies that enable us to integrate nature, human culture and engineering, pursue comfort, harmonize with limited resources, and develop cutting-edge technologies in order to achieve a human society harmonious with nature. The division seeks to foster human resources with a high sense of ethics who can create an attractive human society with consideration for a sustainable future of Earth.
From such perspectives, the Division of Global Architecture seeks:
1. those who have strong interest in sustainable global environment, preservation of the natural environment, creation and preservation of areas and regions, formation of a recycling-oriented society, and who have an interest in things such as ships, buildings, transportation and disaster prevention facilities that appear in human lives;
