The goals of Oceanic Architecture and Engineering are to create safe and comfortable areas within the ocean’s environment where people can live and work, while simultaneously protecting the natural environment from damage. The curriculum is designed to educate students to become multi-skilled oceanic engineers through such courses as Planning and Designing Oceanic Structures, Planning Oceanic Environments and Waterfront Development, and studying other aspects of the coastal zone.
The study of oceanic architecture starts from the understanding of the ocean and environment.
Practical space design, which is essential to this area, is taught in the freshman and sophomore years using models and experiments. At the same time, students will learn about the ocean environment for oceanic architecture.
Freshmen study fundamental subjects related to architecture and ocean environment. In their sophomore and junior years, students study many major subjects on architectural design, planning, environmental engineering and structural engineering required for the design of oceanic architectures.
The aim of each program is for students to acquire requisite engineering knowledge to pursue specialized fields in the future, for example, to become certified as a first-class Kenchikushi (certified architect) or an expert on the marine environment.
