Ehime Univercity Infrastructure Engineering Course and Civic Design Course,
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

About Our Courses

Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Our modern cultural life has been underpinned by the various kinds of infrastructures such as logistic facilities (e.g. roads, bridges, railways, airports and harbors), lifelines (e.g. electricity, water, and gas services), and information and telecommunication facilities. It is very important issues to construct and manage those infrastructures so as to make our life more comfortable and convenient against natural disasters. Furthermore, it is also required for the next generation to utilize our beautiful and rich land for a sustainable development in harmony with nature. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering aims to train students who become capable of managing the regional and national societies and of creating the next-generation rich urban environments. The department offers the following two courses, "Infrastructure Engineering Course" and "Civic Design Course", and the students choose either course based upon their individual future directions.

Infrastructure Engineering Course

Infrastructure Engineering Course

Japan's civil engineering technology is the world highest level, and has been contributing to construct various kinds of infrastructures around the world, including the ultra long-span bridges and the cross-channel tunnels. The main purpose of this course is to raise the civil engineers who will become active in the world construction sites, and become in charge of developing the next-generation infrastructures.

Civic Design Course

Civic Design Course

The wide range of knowledge and skills are required to conduct the urban development and management, which include the cultural grounding, the social and economic perspectives, and the sense of designing landscape as well as the technologies in the civil engineering field. This course welcomes students with liberal arts background, and provides the engineering education that integrates the liberal arts and the science to produce the engineers with the above abilities.

Civil and Environmental Engineering, Graduate School of Science and Engineering

A wide range of research activities aimed at producing high level professionals and developing the infra- structure along with a balance in the natural environment is being carried out in this department. Commitment to producing the highly professional specialists and at the same time, making them internationally able to have a creative and comprehensive view on the environ- mental problems all over the world is the main theme of this department. The department consists of three divisions namely(1)Infrastructure Technology and Design, (2)Urban Planning and Management, and(3)Watershed and Coastal Environmental Engineering that have been covering fields from the top of the mountains to the bot- tom of the seas.

Infrastructure Technology and Design

In this field, the research work and course curriculum include a large variety of topics related to construction materials, design and construction methods, and seismic behaviors of infrastructures such as bridges, dams, roads, underground facilities, etc.

Urban Planning and Management

Towards building a highly convenient urban environment of the 21st century, the research work in this field of study includes a variety of topics related to urban life, industrial environment, disaster management, traffic / transportation systems, operations and maintenance.

Watershed and Coastal Environmental Engineering

Scientific researches in the fields of river, watershed, and coastal environment are indispensable for the sustainable development of infrastructures. Interdisciplinary educational programs and researches from physical, chemical, and ecological aspects, are provided for a better understanding and elucidation of the natural environment in river, urban/natural watershed, and coastal/ nearshore areas as well as for exploring solutions against natural disasters.

Bunkyo-cho 3, Matsuyama, Ehime 790-8577

Matsuyama is the largest city on Shikoku, the capital of Ehime Prefecture and the home of Ehime University. It has an international airport which is connected to Osaka and Tokyo by about 30 flights a day. The city can also be easily reached by train, bus, ferry or hydrofoil. With a population of half a million, it is a calm, regional center with a famous hot spa. In the center of the city sits Matsuyama Castle 132 meters above sea level. Dogo Hotspring Spa, located in the northeast corner of the city, has a history of over 3,000 years; it is said to be the oldest hot spring spa in Japan. Matsuyama is also one of the few cities left in Japan to have streetcars.
Our department is located in "Johoku campus" of Ehime University. Most of our office exits in Engineering bldg.(No.2)
