The objectives of Faculty of Regional Environment Science are to make our society into better coexisting between humans and nature through the suit each of the societies such as mountainous, agricultural, or city-side area through the technology and sociological substance of our department; Forestry, Agricultural Engineering, and Landscape Architecture, based on technologies and philosophy of tradition in our university.

We have to think better of our lifestyle and match it up with both of our local societies and nature. Because of the evolution of transportation and tele-communication system, rapid urbanization is bringing into rural area. That makes environmental problems or energy and resource problems serious. And also the regions which our lives as mountainous, agricultural, or city-side area, have many problems with forestry or agricultural or environmental factors based on the population change, such as under or over population. It is the purpose of our faculty that conduces to solve global problems acting on integrated with the collaborating nature and the activation of local society. ”Think globally, Act Locally" is this faculty’s Key Words.

The academic curriculum of this faculty has “liberal studies and foundation”, “foundation of specialties and engineering” and “applied engineering”. Especially for the training up engineering specialist, This curriculum is accredited with JABEE(Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education; Signatory Organization of Washington Accord since 2005). We also maintain University Forest, Greenhouse, drawing office, and electron microscope for faculty shared.

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.
