International Doctoral Program in Earth Resources Engineering

The Graduate School of Engineering at Kyushu University boasts a 100-year history of producing breakthrough research with global implications.

The School is composed of twelve Departments, offering ten international programs. One of our major objectives is to foster ethically conscious graduates who have a deep understanding of society and the environment, in addition to their technical abilities. Furthermore, in order to exceed at the international level, our graduates are educated in matters of international culture and communication. For this reason, the School provides classes in communication, engineering ethics, and engineering management, along with the conventional engineering disciplines.

Through these innovative courses, the Graduate School of Engineering cultivates students with a wide range of views and strong decision-making skills.

Our Department consists of seven specialized laboratories: Economic Geology; Engineering Geophysics; Geothermics; Resources Production and Safety Engineering; Rock Engineering and Mining Machinery; Mineral Processing and Recycling; and Energy Resources Engineering. This wide range of research fields covers the many technical and engineering issues that may arise at any stage of resource development, from exploration and production to remediation and recycling.

Programme Structure

  • Currently, our faculty members are engaged in the following research areas, all of which are related to resource development: predicting natural disasters such as volcanoes; utilizing ground heat; recycling valuable resources extracted from products and waste (urban mining); remediating contaminated groundwater resources; CO2sequestration and more.
