instrumentation. This course covers the fields of Aquatic Bioscience, Fisheries Biology and Marine Bio-Engineering and works in collaboration with other research institutions — the Fisheries Research and Education Agency and the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology — to educate professionals capable of working in the field of marine life science.
We seek students who are interested in elucidating the mechanisms of the biological activities that are specific to marine organisms, and in conducting research that makes use of the characteristics of same, who actively address application of the results to the conservation and sustainable utilization of living marine resources, and who have the ability to advance research independently.
Education and research are conducted on the principles and advanced technologies for the manufacture, storage, distribution, and consumption of various foods, mainly marine products. In particular for the promotion of human health and maintenance of homeostasis, the following themes will be addressed from chemical, microbiological, physical and engineering viewpoints: ensuring the safety and soundness of food from material procurement through to consumption, improving the quality and functionality of food, and advancing food manufacturing systems. Also, interdisciplinary development of technologies will be examined in a comprehensive manner, including the development of the related design and implementation abilities.
We seek students who are interested in the field of food science and technology, such as guaranteeing and improving the safety of foods, the elucidation of trophic/health functions of foods and optimal control of food quality,and who have the drive to acquire the ability to identify and solve issues by themselves in order to realize these.
The Course of Marine Resources and Environment provides students with educational and research opportunities to learn about cutting-edge theories, from physical and engineering perspectives, in connection with issues related to the structure and conservation of the ocean, relationships between marine life and the environment, and development and use of ocean and ocean-floor resources and energy, as well as to learn about relevant applied technologies, in order to achieve the sustainable use of marine resources while preserving the marine environment. This course consists of the following four fields of study: marine biology, Aquatic environmental chemistry, physics and environmental modeling, and ocean environmental technology. Programs are designed to develop specialists who can play leading roles in the fields of marine environmental science and resource engineering.
The Course of Marine Resources and Environment seeks students who are interested in various issues pertaining to the marine environment and its conservation, the relationships between aquatic organisms and the applied development and sustainable utilization of marine resources and energy, and who have the drive to actively pursue ways to solve to issues through the mastery of extensive knowledge and skills.
This course consists of three fields: the field of marine policy, the field of marine management and the field of marine environment and culture. Those fields practice “interdisciplinary education” including natural science, social science, cultural science and marine science technology through the study/research of comprehensive management and policy of ocean/coast such as marine environment, marine resources, marine industry and marine economics. It trains students to devise policies to study, utilize and manage the marine conservation and the utilization of marine resources comprehensively and systematically and to play a role in creating/developing an international order concerning the ocean. Therefore, the course provides education and training based on “international viewpoint” while placing an emphasis on “practical education” such as case method and field training.
We seek students who are interested in comprehensive management/policies for systematically utilizing and conserving the oceans,which are used multilaterally, and have a strong drive to pursue solutions to interdisciplinary issues extending over the three fields of natural science, social science, and humanities.
The marine engineered facilities comprise a wide range of components such as these for ocean observation or surveying, and work equipment, ships and mechanical structures as well as their integrated operation system. From the viewpoint of harmony between marine engineered facilities and the marine environment, this course provides education and research in the development, designing, building and manufacturing technologies for engineered facilities under a scientific system focusing on systems engineering, environmental engineering and safety engineering.
The Course of Marine System Engineering seeks students who are interested in the machines/equipment that marine artificial objects such as marine observation/operation machines, ships/marine structures consist of and in systems in which these are integrated, and who will actively address development/conservation/restoration from a broad viewpoint, from the point of view of "harmony between the marine environment and marine artificial objects" and under an academic framework centered on systems engineering, environmental engineering and safety engineering.
We conduct educational and research activities aimed at realizing safe operation of the vessels that play a central role in international transportation. We adopt the most advanced technology in our efforts to improve maritime transportation efficiency while paying attention to environmental preservation, and apply accumulated vessel operation technology to new fields such as the development of marine structures.
We also conduct educational and research activities on logistics from a socio-technological perspective whereby commodity flows are reviewed throughout the cycle from production to consumption, including such aspects as land, sea and air transport. And, we conduct analysis, planning and design, operational management and policy from management and economic perspectives.
The Course of Maritime Technology and Logistics seeks students who have a field of view with a global scale, will identify various issues related to the safety/efficiency of marine transportation and logistics, and have a strong drive to master the theoretical/practical core qualities necessary to obtain solutions to them.
In response to globalization, food safety management is required to provide the appropriate measures in primary production, food manufacturing, food storage, and transport of food products to the final consumer. The Safety Management in Food Supply Chain (SMFSC) course aims to not only train students who can understand and have fundamental knowledge of food safety management, but also develop excellent professionals of food safety management/quality control in the process of food manufacturing, food processing, and food supply chain to meet the needs of the society.
In addition, the SMFSC course is aimed at developing students’ practical ability to identify/analyze issues and devise strategies, eventually becoming leaders in the field of food risk management. We provide with HACCP Manager Course, Food Logistics Business Training Course, as well as ISO 22000 Standard Auditor Training for the international standard for food safety management systems, to produce highly specialized, professional food logistics safety managers.
We seek students who will systematically learn about food safety/quality control in the various processes of food supply chains and accumulate the basic skills, and who also have a strong drive to develop their own abilities by training their problem solving abilities / judgment abilities, with the aim of becoming specialists in food safety/quality control, and furthermore, of becoming managers/administrators who have comprehensive abilities that will enable them to draw up management policies having considered the risks pertaining to food safety and take the lead in implementation.
