Educational Aims of the Degree Programs
Faced with today’s increasingly unstable social conditions, our biggest challenge is to create resilient social systems capable of recovering from and flexibly responding to unforeseen contingencies, while maintaining and providing necessary functions. This requires establishment of appropriate risk management systems to provide the strength and flexibility needed to achieve safety and security for an information-based society and economy, at both national and regional levels.
The purpose of the Master’s program is to foster highly specialized professionals capable of giving back to society as a result of studies pursued in view of real-world issues. The aim is for our graduates to help create a resilient society by applying the results of risk analysis and assessment obtained using engineering methodology.
In the Doctoral program, in addition to the above, we aim to foster academic and global human resources equipped with both research skills based on theoretical understanding and advanced practical skills.
