Mechanism, Assessment and Remediation of Environmental Pollution
The environmental pollution problem is a global issue and efforts from various fields are necessary. However, effects of anthropogenic activities such as environmental pollution do not immediately catch the attention of the general public and are not easily brought under control. To resolve this global and growing issue, contributions from various research filed are necessary, e.g., health science, social science and technologies for environmental remediation. In this course, professors of faculties of agriculture, veterinary medicine, engineering, economics and business, health science and environmental earth science, and specialist of GIS research are jointed to provide basic knowledge in each field in the omnibus classes.
Registration will open in late June.
