The Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences (IGSES) consists of 5 departments and plays an important role in advanced research and education in Materials Science as well as Energy and the Environment in cooperation with the Institutes for Materials Chemistry and Engineering (IMCE) and the Research Institute for Applied Mechanics (RIAM).
IGSES actively accepts excellent international students from various leading universities by providing graduate programs, such as the Green Asia Program and the IEI Program. IGSES has achieved remarkable academic success through its coordinated interdisciplinary research activities to contribute the realization of sustainable development and economic prosperity.
The objectives of this department are to educate the next generation of Earth resource engineers and to contribute to the sustainable development of minerals and energy resources. This department is one of the cornerstones of the Green Asia Program.
Our department consists of seven laboratories: Economic Geology, Exploration Geophysics, Geothermics, Resource Production and Safety Engineering, Rock Engineering and Mining Machinery, Mineral Processing, Recycling and Environmental Remediation and Energy Resources Engineering. This wide range of research fields cover all the key topics of resource development from exploration, production, remediation, and recycling. Our research interests also extend to volcanic hazards, geothermal and urban mining.
