The goal of the Civil & Environmental Engineering Major is to cultivate expert civil and environmental engineers by utilizing the research infrastructure and world-class faculty, who are capable of conducting global research to pioneer the advanced and environmental technologies which are necessary for the future development of land and cities as well as converging and integrating those technologies in order to resolve land and urban issues. This major provides more advanced curricula through its concentrations: Construction Environment Engineering, Urban & Transportation System Engineering, and Geotechnical & Geo-Space Engineering.
Construction Environment Engineering covers the whole field of environmental engineering and water resources such as advanced wastewater treatment, advanced drinking water treatment, disposal and recycling of waste, contaminated soil and underground water restoration, watershed environmental management. Study progress in each subject combines lectures about fundamental theory with field studies through pilot plants prepared for research projects.
Urban and Geotechnical Engineering provides an academic curriculum for real-scale fundamental studies and geotechnical applications to characterize mechanical behavior of the ground. On this basis, we will develop technologies in order to optimize the narrow nations’s land use and deal with geotechnical engineering technologies with extreme and futuristic conditions such as earthquake and space. And focuses on theory and technology for mobility and safety essential to SmartCity, planning, construction and evaluation of national transportation system, service design, operation, profit management, and maintenance. In addition, diverse research facilities can be used to conduct all relevant education about cutting-edge technologies and application of urban and transportation.
