Civil Engineering contributes to the development of safe and comfortable life.

 Civil engineering is a professional discipline that deals with the improvement of wide-ranging social infrastructure in our natural and physical living environment, including public utility works such as electric utility, gas utility, water utility, roads, railroads, and airports while meeting the responsibilities of sustaining a safe and comfortable social life. It is also a discipline that may be appropriately called "integrated engineering", because it deals with the control and prevention of natural disasters (such as earth quake, river flood and debris flow) , environmental conservation, and development of subsurface and ocean.

 Department of Civil Engineering offers two main courses: (1) Environmental Studies Course in which students learn technologies for establishing local communities in harmony with nature and for promoting sustainable development; and (2) Disaster Reduction Studies Course in which students acquire various knowledge and technology dealing with natural disasters and disaster prevention.

 An easy-to-understand explanation is available on the Japan Society of Civil Engineers. For more details please visit here.

FAQ

What is the difference between Department of Civil Engineering and Department of Architectural Engineering? Isn't there a department of architectural engineering at Gifu University?

There isn't a department of architectural engineering at Gifu University. Students in the department of civil engineering deal with the improvement of social structure that sustains a safe and comfortable living, as opposed to students in the department of architectural engineering who deal mainly with architectural structure. Civil Engineering deals with the improvement of wide-ranging social infrastructure, including city planning decision, improvement of roads, railroads, bridges, etc., management of sewer system, and so on. It is also involved with the control and prevention of natural disasters (i.e. earthquakes, floods, debris flow, etc.), environmental conservation, and the development of subsurface and ocean.
