TO ACADEMICS & PRACTICING ENGINEERS

Our group runs research programmes on an ever widening range of topics in geotechnics. We have an established reputation in soil sampling and natural soil characterisation, with the aid of sophisticated laboratory and physical model tools. Based on such expertise, we have been advising on many projects, both locally and nationwide. We are keen to expand our activity range through casual discussions, collabotations and any sort of international interactions. Any suggestion of possible research collaboration or technical sessions is very welcome.



TO STUDENTS WISHING TO STUDY WITH US

Our group has had a steady stream of overseas students  coming to study with us. Our academic staff work internationally, and can share the overseas students' international aspirations and visions (all the three academics themselves studied or researched in the UK for some time). The research life may be led in the English language, although we can surely help you learn Japanese to further facilitate the campus life. The university is particularly enthusiastic in recent years in further internationalising the whole campus environment, and number of foreign students is expected only to grow. If you are interested in studying with us in this unique, vibrant city combining urbanity and natural beauty, please contact one of our academic members.

The details of the post-graduate program in the graduate school of Engineering at Hokkaido University (called "e3 Programme"; Engineering Education in English) is found
here. The link also explains how to apply.
