School of Marine Resources and Environment

The School of Marine Resources and Environment consists of two undergraduate courses: the Department of Ocean Sciences and the Department of Marine Resources and Energy. One of the mottos of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology is to "understand, protect and leverage the sea." The School of Marine Resources and Environment will be the one that literally embodies these three objectives.

The School of Marine Resources and Environment consists of two undergraduate courses: the Department of Ocean Sciences and the Department of Marine Resources Energy. For the Department of Ocean Sciences, it consists of two major study areas: oceanography and marine biology. Likewise, there are two study areas, ocean development and applied ocean engineering, for the Department of Marine Resources and Energy.

Let me explain the details of the Department of Ocean Sciences a little more. As illustrated on the left side of the screen, it is roughly divided into two areas: oceanography and marine biology. As the distinguished feature of the Department of Ocean Sciences, we provide a group of subjects for both oceanography and marine biology as shown here. Various practical training courses on-board ships differentiate Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology from other universities. The Department of Ocean Sciences offers many practical training courses such as "Practical Training of Oceanography I & II" where students have opportunities to be on-board ships to practice and study in the field.

Now, I will move on to the details of the Department of Marine Resources and Energy. It consists of two research areas: ocean development and applied ocean engineering. There are two major subject groups: ocean development and applied ocean engineering. The students can choose subjects from these groups. As for practical training for the Department of Marine Resources and Energy, we offer special courses focusing on marine resources and energetics. The students also study and research on-board ships or in the field.

Qualifications you can acquire at this new school include the 1st class teacher's certificate for junior high and high schools. The teaching subjects will be science and fishery science. In addition to this, a certificate for a curator and a certificate for a third-class ship's officer can be acquired, although completion of the one-year advanced course is required in the latter case.

Please note that major places of employment indicated here are for the students who are currently enrolled in the Department of Ocean Sciences.
