Special Graduate Course on Disaster Mitigation Study for Asian Students

The main research objectives of running the Special Course on Disaster Prevention Study for Asian Students are to understand and elucidate characteristic features of natural disasters in Asia and to develop their preventive measures, while the educational motto stands at producing first class researchers and technical experts with frontier research capabilities and advanced knowledge in the field of natural disasters. The research topics in this course mainly include landslide hazards, flood hazards, earthquake hazards, coastal hazards, structural damages, information dissemination, and related fields.
