All-English Program

  • Special graduate program [Infrastructure]
  • By extensively utilizing a studio-teaching format, the IGSI trains students to gain useful knowledge of Civil Engineering, which they put to actual use when they confront various different urban problems in emerging and developing countries. All lectures, studio classes and consultations on master’s thesis will be conducted in English. The course is offered not just to Japanese students but also to foreign students in general. The IGSI thus functions as a foreign-student teaching arm of YNU Graduate School of Urban Innovation.

  • Infrastructure Management Program (IMP)
  • This program was established in 1995 with the receipt of a grant from a special scholarship program funded by the Japanese Government for government officers from developing countries of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank). The program examines approaches to infrastructure management at all levels from the planning of infrastructure to its construction and operation while bearing in mind the welfare of the local population and preservation of the environment. A new cohort will begin in October 2016 at the Graduate School of Urban Innovation.
