Courses and lab
Environmental adaptation: By surveying contemporary action and techniques on lowering the environmental load, develop cleaner nano-technology and appropriate course of action.
Environmental metrology: Study several quantitative measuring methods. Offer support for certified measurer candidates.
Environmental remediation: Learn several remediation methods as well as the development of adsorption and substitute material, analysis of contaminated material, and technique of consequence assessment.
Environmental analysis: Practical training on environmental adaptation, measurement techniques on environmental remediation and technique on separation cleaning.
English (Foreign students may take the Japanese language) and/or English score test (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS)
Special subject Either one of the following 2 methods can be taken
Method A Mandatory: Short thesis regarding environmental science or environmental issue. NB this has to be submitted in the first 60 minutes of the exam. Selective: Choose two questions from the following subjects: Environmental science, Physics, Chemistry, geosciences, Ecology and Geography.
Method B 10 minutes long oral examination, presenting the graduation thesis (PowerPoint, use your computer) for those of whom first-choice were Environmental Adaptation Science. If second, none of these are necessary. Mature students can present recent activities.
