Department of Marine System Engineering
Create a variety of systems based on coexistence and harmony with the sea.
The earth is a planet of water, and since its formation, humankind has enjoyed the abundant bounty of the ocean, the source of water. For sustainable and effective use of this resource, we need to protect the marine environment and figure out how to coexist with the sea.
Based on this idea, at the Department of Marine System Engineering, you will learn basic knowledge about marine environment assessment and conservation, and basic theories about safe and efficient marine transportation systems, marine resources, and marine space utilization systems. Furthermore, the Department promotes the development of concrete methodologies through basic theories, experiments, practical training, and field measurements related to system science for studying the coexistence of nature and technology.
Humankind has developed engineering technology, which today’s human activities are based on. The primary objective of marine system engineering is to figure out how these activities can coexist in harmony with the sea, or nature. To achieve this objective, it is essential to multilaterally understand how the ocean works in the earth’s system, create an integrated system of nature and technology, and add a new twist to the engineering technology used in the ocean.
To be more specific, the technological issues experts have been working on include the creation of systems related to safe and efficient marine transportation by ships, effective use of the ocean as a reservoir of food and mineral resources, and utilization of the vast space in the ocean. Marine system engineering aims to make these advanced engineering technologies not merely nature-friendly but effective for sustainable development based on coexistence and harmony with nature.
