COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING OVERVIEW
Promoting LOHAS Engineering for the Future of Human Beings and the Earth
Engineering from a new point of view requires the limited use of resources in the earth while sustaining a better society with affluence. Thus, this College educates and researches engineering from the perspective of Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS). The College of Engineering is located in Koriyama City, Fukushima Prefecture, where there is an abundance of nature, and has a large campus with a size of about 380,000㎡. In this vast campus, the College has a classroom building constructed with great consideration for the environment. The Nihon University College of Engineering Worldwide Research Center for Advanced Engineering & Technology (NEWCAT) is equipped with an experiment room where surgical operations can be performed. This is the first of its kind for an engineering college and the College conducts research in medical engineering and genetic engineering by the collaboration of medicine and engineering. The Cooperative Research Center for Environmental Preservation and Ecological Life Cycles conducts research in global environmental problems from a perspective of environmental preservation for nature, human begins and ecological life cycles. Thus, the College of Engineering promotes advanced research and uses the results in education. This College strives to produce engineers who can function no only locally but also work well in an international environment.
