Outline

Master’s Program

Educational Objectives

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 the required functions. This requires establishment of risk management appropriate for providing the strength and flexibility needed to achieve safety and security for an information-based society and economy, nationally and regionally. To that end, the purpose of this degree program is to foster highly specialized professionals, who as a result of studies pursued in view of real-world issues will be able to give back to society. The aim is for them to help create a resilient society by applying the results of risk analysis and assessment obtained using engineering methodology.

Graduate Qualities and Capabilities

We aim to foster professionals who acquire both basic theory and related information processing skills for analyzing and assessing risk and resilience based on a strong foundation in engineering. They are able to take a broad view of real-world problems in risk and resilience engineering, using communication skills to fulfill their assigned role on a research team or research project. As required they are able to assume leadership while taking an engineering approach in defining problems, and in devising and developing concrete methods for resolving those problems.
