The Faculty of Symbiotic Systems Science was established in October 2004, with the aim of developing human resources with the requisite knowledge and executive qualities to deal with 21st century issues such as the ageing society, the global environment, and energy crises; and contributing to the creation of a sustainable and recycling society where people can live in safety. This cross-disciplinary department is the newest science and technology field within the national university system. Our three pronged approach of people, industry and environment handles issues that were not dealt with sufficiently in a vertically segmented academic system. This approach is how we are vastly different from most science and technology departments.
