Transdiciplinary Science and Engineering
In the Transdicipilinary Science and Engineering energy course (called Yugo in Japanese meaning "Fusion"), we utilize knowledge of science and engineering to solve the complex problems for society that open up a new horizons. As fields of expertise related to energy become deeper, the importance of understanding energy from a bird's-eye view and finding solutions with knowledge of sociology and economics will become more important especially in Asia, India and the Middle East, where the world's economic growth is concentrated. The energy field is changing and with it social structures change as well that need broad understanding and insight. We welcome students who seeks to understand energy broadly and undertake research that overlaps various fields such as science, engineering, energy policy and economics to make tomorrow's society safer, more resilent and sustainable.
