Human Environmental Systems

Human Environmental Systems (HES) 

This division teaches students to plan work and identify/solve problems concerning constructed environments and regional spaces, and motivates them to develop advanced logical thinking based on symbiosis with nature. Students also develop the ability to understand social and physical phenomena occurring in various conditions, develop control technology and planning methods, and apply their results to the planning, design and construction of human environments.
