Message from the Dean

Through resource sciences, let’s spread our wings to the world.

In recent years, the cost of energy resources has continued to rise. Furthermore, ensuring a stable supply of critical minerals, particularly rare metals, presents a significant challenge for our nation. The concept of sustainable resource circulation, closely linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is gaining traction, emphasizing the need for global-scale strategies to achieve carbon neutrality.

The Faculty of International Resource Sciences is dedicated to addressing these global challenges through the lens of resource sciences. Our focus is on exploring Earth’s valuable resources and optimizing their production. This encompasses not only traditional sources like oil and natural gas but also emerging resources like renewable energy. Furthermore, we recognize the importance of integrating knowledge from social sciences such as economics, policy studies, international cooperation, and international law into our approach.

Wouldn’t you like to study these cutting-edge aspects of resource sciences and engage in research? You can even conduct field investigations on a global stage.

After four years in our faculty, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue advanced specialization in the Graduate School of International Resource Sciences.

Let’s soar across the globe through the realm of resource sciences. I eagerly anticipate the day when we can join forces in research, paving the way for the advancement of future generations in this field.

Dean of Faculty of International Resource Sciences
