Engineering and Policy for Sustainable Environment

Engineering and Policy for Sustainable Environment (EPSE)

This division supports the development of experts who can elucidate the nature of complex environmental/social problems and issues relating to the creation of spaces and environments essential for safe, comfortable and well-developed social activities in northern regions. The approach of the specialists fostered in this way involves the use of systems engineering and socioeconomic techniques based on their knowledge of natural and social sciences. Graduates are also equipped with a perspective broad enough to address problems while building consensus with local residents based on their engineering ethics and sense of mission in society.
