Building the infrastructures for the next millennium.
This Institute emphasizes on the development of practical technologies. For the past few years, in order to meet the needs of the society, we have been integrating faculty members with various kinds of expertise to form research teams to study subjects such as debris-flow prevention, structure seismic retrofitting, post-disaster spatial analysis, environmental protection, hillside hazard mitigation, construction safety, planning management, and supporting system of disaster prevention. Currently, the focus of these researches is on consolidating and strengthening the research projects conducted by our research teams. We will then cooperate with scholars and experts in relevant fields to develop new research areas. Our long-term goal is to become a leading institute in civil and disaster prevention engineering in our country.
