Achievement of Commitment

Cultivation of the program for “Capacity Building in Global Water Environmental Engineering”

How this will be achieved

Chuo’s Water Program comprises a unique educational curriculum, that offers students an opportunity to master industrial and governmental concerns, as well as the skills needed to become highly specialized technicians in water environment and water treatment, professionals with a global perspective who respect the history, culture and climate of target nations and regions. Through this program, Chuo University will strive to foster international experts capable of proposing and executing comprehensive and fundamental improvement plans regarding water environments in East Asia and around the world. In principle, every year 75% of graduates will be selected as candidates for executive positions in the global water environmental engineering field.

Each year the Chuo University Science and Engineering Faculty will hold an international symposium in Asia and in Japan to report program progress and to hold discussions on water environment research and water environment sustainability.

In five years we will launch a new department focusing on water environment and its sustainability in the Chuo University Postgraduate School of Science and Engineering. From that time forward the new department will produce 30 high-level experts in the following areas each year:
