“Special International Program for Urban Infrastructure Engineering in Developing Countries (‘Civil and Development’ program)” and “International Graduate Program for Innovation of Civil Engineering through ICT technologies (‘Civil and ICT/IoT’ program)” are belonging to the Department of Infrastructure and Urban Society for the master course and Department of Urban Innovation for the doctor course in Graduate School of Urban Innovation, Yokohama National University. It is the all-English graduate program at the doctor and master level in the field of civil engineering.
We have initiated the program since 1989. The Japanese government (MEXT) scholarships have been collocated to the program as a priority, and at present, two MEXT scholarships for the master course and five MEXT scholarships for the doctor course are allocated every year for the “Civil and Development” program, and one MEXT scholarship for the master course and three MEXT scholarships for the doctor course are allocated every year for “Civil and ICT/IoT” program. The program is rather research-oriented although coursework (attending lectures) is required. Courses are offered in English, and all dissertation works including adviser's guidance, progress report, writing, and presentation in English.
