This course will provide a comprehensive overview of human security engineering, a system of technologies for designing and managing cities that enable inhabitants to live under better public health conditions, and also to live free from potential threats of large-scale disasters and environmental destruction. The Millennium Development Goals will be evaluated from the viewpoints of four existing fields: urban governance, urban infrastructure management, health risk management, and disaster risk management. Furthermore, we will explore the relationship between the four existing fields.
The student presentations about urban human security engineering were conducted from the viewpoints of four existing fields: urban governance, urban infrastructure management, health risk management, and disaster risk management. They considered what is indispensable for human security engineering on the basis of their academic background and their doctoral research activities position in the human security engineering. In addition, in this presentation and discussion, fruitful discussion was carried out for establishment of human security engineering.
