Faculty of Bioresources and
Environmental Sciences

Providing a range of learning opportunities
based around the various living organisms that exist on earth

At our university, we have set up three departments as part of the Faculty of Bioresources and Environmental Sciences, namely the Department of Bioproduction Science, the Department of Environmental Science and the Department of Food Science. Defining the common theme over the three departments of ‘Bioresources and Environmental Sciences’ as an academic field to pursue and practice ‘The Principle of Coexistence of Humans and Nature’, the university provides education and conducts research on the relationships between ‘nature’, ‘living organisms’ and ‘humans’ from the three perspectives of ‘Bioproduction’, ‘The Environment’ and ‘Food’.

In each of the departments, students use these three perspectives to explore the utilization of bioresources such as animals and plants, rather than fossil fuel resources such as oil. Global warming and desertification, damage to the ozone layer… Bioresources and Environmental Sciences is an area of learning which attempts to revitalize our earth which is gradually losing its beauty due to wealth and greed. Here, students are involved in learning with the long-term future of the earth in mind.

Liberal Arts Education Center

Our university has a wide variety of Liberal Arts courses available so that students can acquire the skills to deal with and solve issues they are confronted with, as well as become well-rounded.

Research Institute for Bioresources
and Biotechnology

The purpose of this institute is to use bioresources to develop products and technologies that are helpful for society, and together with the three departments of Bioproduction Science, Environmental Science and Food Science, the institute functions as a base for research that supports local development.

University Farm

The University Farm is a field for hands-on study with nine hothouses and a barn for livestock practicums in addition to approximately 3 ha of farmland. Here, we hope that students can learn a wide range of the latest agricultural technologies.
