The mission of Major of Architecture is to develop socially-committed architecture, urban designer and technician through the study of major field, related to creating and maintaining life and living environment of city and architecture in advanced and complicated modern society.To develop the ability of designing, planning that is rich in originality, advanced skills, expertise in wide range and communication skills, our education is offered with number of professors and facilities in Hachioji and Shinjuku. The education also offered that makes most of conveniently-located Shinjuku campus.In line with the global demands, Major of Systems Design offers courses in extensive fields, from up-to-date technology to management and communication skills.Also, our education system offers and highly considers training for practical skills for finding subject and solution.Our students in graduate school received number of prizes at planning competition, and we are also active external activities, international exchange and research presentation in overseas.

Principles and Objectives

Architecturally, it is a big task to create and maintain comfortable and safe living life. However, new problems and tasks such as decreasing birthrate, aging society, information society, globalization, ethics of architectural engineers, have been piled up in recent years.As to solve these issues, we aim at acquisitions of skills, advanced expertise, and broad views related to architecture, and develop internationally-minded talent.
