common thread: the use and control of electromagnetic energy. Almost all information is
captured using e
lectromagnetic, electro
-
optical, bio
-
electrical, electro
-
chemical, or electro
-
mechanical transducers. The first step of developing a cell phone, car’s parking assistance
system, or space probe is designing transducers, related electronics, and algorithms t

Applied analysis and computation are ess
ential to research in virtually every field of science and
engineering. Modern engineering is, to a large extent, computational engineering. Computational and
applied mathematics (CAAM) is the fundamental discipline that underlies practice and intellectual

advancement in mathematical modeling, applied analysis, the development and analysis of numerical
algorithms, and the implementation and dissemination of mathematical software. CAAM provides a key
enabling technology for all aspects of computational engin
eering and numerical simulation.The CAAM
faculty at Rice are leading researchers with international reputations. There are cutting edge research
activities in inverse problems, discrete and continuous optimization, computational neuroscience, partial
diffe
rential equations (PDE), PDE constrained optimization, and large scale numerical linear algebra. Our
work is often highly interdisciplinary and involves interaction with all of the other departments within the
School of Engineering.

Rice
-

Choosing a major in college is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your life. The
Computer Science (CS) department trains technical leaders versed in the skill of "computational thin
king". This kind
of thinking involves taking an ill
-
defined problem, conceptualizing a precise model of the problem, reasoning about
this model, and constructing a computational solution based on this reasoning. How do our majors put this skill to use
afte
r they graduate?




Help solve the major challenges facing the world.

The world faces significant problems in the areas of
health, energy, and the environment. Bioinformatics, a relatively new CS area, applies computational
techniques to problems like
designing new drugs or understanding the causes of cancer. Estimating the
impact of various new energy technologies like carbon sequestration requires sophisticated computer
simulations. "Smart" technologies have the potential to reduce energy consumption
and alleviate many
environmental problems.




Work on intellectually stimulating technical problems.

While helping solve the world's problems is an
exciting goal, careers in CS also provide day
-
to
-
day intellectual challenges like understanding the dynamics
o
f social networks or creating realistic special effects for the next Hollywood blockbuster. Using
computational thinking to solve complex technical problems is an activity that many people enjoy.




Make lots of money.

Starting salaries for CS majors are exc
ellent. One recent Computing Research
Association survey rated CS majors as having one of the highest average starting salaries out of 16
technical and non
-
technical fields. For those interested in bigger bucks, you could sign on with a start
-
up
company (o
r even start your own). Also, CS majors often apply their technical training in lucrative fields such
as commodities trading or patent law.

The goal of the International Graduate Program in the Feld of Civil Engineering
and
Infrastructure Studies at the Department of Civil Engineering is to prepare its graduating students
to become future international leaders in the field of infrastructure technology design, planning,
disaster mitigation, and environmental management. In
volvement in key projects in various
academic fields and industries provides students with crucial experience and skills needed for
developing and integrating the competencies necessary for participation on an international level
in our expanding global wo
rld. Since 1982, the Department of Civil Engineering has been offering
this program, and more than 730 international students from around 60 different countries have
graduated.

In our program, lectures and research supervision are given in English. Selecti
on is made
according to qualification based on submitted documents and the short
-
listed candidates are
recommended to our partner scholarship organizations. All students are entitled to receive full
scholarships and enroll as full
-
time graduate students up
on arrival in Japan. Currently over 90
international graduate students are studying at the department, almost as many as the number of
Japanese graduate students of our department.

Civil and environmental engineers play a vital role in society. Civil engineers build bridges, tunnels, dams and
are involved in designing the infrastructure for transportation, commerce, energy and industry
.Environmental
engineers research and design sustainable solutions for environmental problems. They identify, design, build and
operate systems to restore, preserve and protect the environment.

At Rice, these disciplines offer students a robust
curriculum,

with hands
-
on opportunities for research and design. Because our classes are small, undergraduates get
to know the faculty who teach their classes and learn about research opportunities in their labs. Our degree programs
provide students with the theoreti
cal and practical foundations they need to solve the problems of the 21st century.
Civil and environmental engineers are the backbone of the Rice chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB), which
is one of the largest chapters in the country. Most of the p
rojects undertaken by EWB are water related, and three are
currently underway in Latin America.

Over the past 140 years, Japan has made enormous academic and industrial leaps in the study
and application of science and technology, enabling the country to become highly competitive in these
fields. The emphasis of today's research and development has m
oved from a narrow focus driven by the
desire for knowledge and more affluent lifestyles, to a more socially and environmentally aware approach
that includes the creation of new values, and aims to provide synergistic solutions for humankind's
coexistence
with nature. Following this increased awareness of the significance and scope of our work, the
operations of Japanese universities have greatly changed. It is fair to say that we have been at an
academic crossroads over the past several years, not just in
terms of education, research and operation,
but also in relation to international and social contexts as well. We have now reached a key point in our
university's history.

depth
understanding of the global environmental problems and at producing graduates who will contribute to
the promotion of the sustainable society. The program makes use of the lessons from Japan
's past
experience of environmental problems and the recent advances in analytical methods and technologies
for environmental and social sustainability. Students taking the program will be taught a wide
spectrum of subjects in the natural and social scienc
es such as: climatic change and global
geochemical material cycles; biodiversity in ecosystems; data analysis methods including statistics
and computer simulation; environmental economics, international politics and other social sciences
relating to human
security and sustainable society. Graduates from the program which is connected to
the Graduate Program on Environmental Sciences are expected to contribute to the promotion of

The Department of Environmental Sciences started 1.1.2010 by joining together the Aquatic and
Environmental Sciences and Environmental Ecology. The new department is based at the Viikki campus in Helsinki
and at the environmental campus in Lahti, thus form
ing a strong and broad university unit for environmental
education and research.he major main subjects are: Aquatic Sciences, Environmental Ecology and Environmental
Change and Policy. It is also possible to do a Master's degree which gives qualifications
for teaching in biology.
Research at the department covers both biologically and socially oriented environmental research. Strong skills in
both disciplines and cross

disciplinarity give a good basis for solution
-
oriented research and teaching based on the

most recent environmental knowledge.

Restoration requires a combination of academic knowledge and artisanal
skills.
This Environmental engineering
discipline is both broad and specialised, with on the one hand
similarities in ethical approach, and on the other differences in context and material between, for
example, furniture from the Royal Palace or a painting

by Mark Rothko. Restorers from the
Rijksmuseum work together with researchers from the 'Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed',
and UvA students and lecturers in the Atelier Building, a Dutch centre of excellence.

ENERGY

Stanford uni
Within the Environmental Fluid Mechanics &

Hydrology Program, the focus is on the movement of surface and
groundwater and, jointly with Environmental Engineering and Science, atmospheric related topics.Environmental fluid
mechanics courses address fluid and sediment transport and mixing processes,

turbulence and its modeling, the fluid
mechanics of stratified flows, natural flows in coastal waters, estuaries, lakes and open channels, atmospheric flows and
experimental methods. Hydrology courses consider stochastic methods in both surface and subsur
face hydrology,
watershed hydrology and modeling, and flow and transport in porous media. Planning courses highlight issues related to
sustainable water resources development, both in the U.S. and in developing countries. Degree programs can be developed
b
y combining environmental fluid mechanics and hydrology classes with courses from programs and departments which
both complement and supplement the Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology Program offerings. Some examples
include Environmental Engineeri
ng and Science, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Earth Sciences, Computer Science,
