Message

I have been serving as specially appointed professor since April 2011 after I quit in January of the same year the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (former Ministry of Construction) for which I worked for 32 years and nine months. My career includes positions such as directors of river offices in the Kanto and Shikoku areas, the director-general of River Department, the National Institute for Land and Infrastructure Management and the deputy director-general of the College of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

The subjects in the global water environment course are aimed at equipping the students not only with highly professional knowledge but also various skills to enable them to work as a professional immediately after graduation. I hope to see your active participation.
