About the TMU Material Lab.
The Material Lab is one of the “Safety and Disaster Prevention Filed” group
of the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering field in the Graduate
School and Faculty of Urban Environmental Sciences, Tokyo Metropolitan
Based on observation and analyses, the Graduate School and Faculty of Urban
Environmental Sciences clarifies the interactions among 1) the natural
environment, 2) humans, 3) materials, 4) energy, 5) information, and 6)
man-made structures such as buildings and automobiles, as crucial elements
that construct urban environments. The Graduate School and Faculty aims
to develop methodologies for predicting, designing, and controlling the
interactions and concentration of each element in any space and at any
time, and to establish a system of urban environmental sciences that leads
to a construction of a sustainable society. The Graduate School and Faculty
promotes advanced research on each element as a priority area, not only
to solve, but also to discover problems in realizing a sustainable “Mega-City.”
In our research we seek to understand human society and ecosystem, to promote the intelligent use of limited natural resources, and to design sustainable infrastructure systems.
