Purpose of Establishment
The Graduate School of Energy and Environment was the first established in the nation in 2004 with the goals of cultivating a high quality energy environment technology policy workforce equipped with the technology and competence for energy production and distribution, new renewable energy development, efficient utilization of energy, and related policy development. To cultivate a high quality energy environment technical workforce with field adaptability as well as theoretical knowledge, we will invite excellent professors with superior research performance and field experience. These professors will concentrate on teaching and performing research, and we will continue to endeavor to create a quality education environment.
Students who graduate from the Graduate School of Energy and Environment will develop into experts in these fields, and will work towards resolving the energy issues of our society and country.
