Tokyo University Of Agriculture


Examining agricultural, rural, and food issues from an environmental engineering perspective

Department of Agricultural Engineering

Environment Engineering Approach toward Agriculture/Rural Villages/Food Problems.

This major, through placing on emphasis on theory acquisition and on-site experience, is striving to foster excellent human resources with a high degree of specialist knowledge who understand the technologies for effective utilization of water, land and food resources together with those related to engineering biological production that take into account environmental creation and conservation. To achieve this aim, the major comprises four subjects being, Land and Water Resources Use Engineering, Environmental Information and Planning, Infrastructural Engineering and Agricultural Production Systems Engineering, under which related education and research are conducted.

Teacher-training Course

This is a course for obtaining a regular teaching certificate for junior high schools and high schools based on Japan’s Education Personnel Certification Act.

Teacher-training Course

Students who take this course are awarded a teaching certificate at the time of graduation by earning specified credits while taking specialized education in their department. This course creates a heavier workload compared to other students, as it entails taking more classes, with many lectures in the evening and many practice sessions off campus, but this could lead to a student life that much richer.

Many students who have completed this course are playing active roles as teachers in junior high schools and high schools as well as other educational institutions around the country. In the academic year 2016, 130 people obtained 291 teaching certificates (including specialized certificates for those who completed a graduate program). While passing the teacher employment examination is a difficult hurdle, every year about 150 NODAI alumnae (including former graduates) become teachers.

Scientific Information Course

The objective of this course is to train natural sciences librarians and curators by having students learn the foundation of being a technical expert

Scientific Information Course

The objective of this course is to train natural sciences librarians and curators by having students learn the foundation of being a technical expert (including information usage education using computers), which includes surveying, accumulating, organizing, storing, searching, and providing (including displaying) information related to science and technology in public institutions such as museums, science museums, children’s facilities, and public libraries, as well as corporate information departments and R&D departments.
