Data Center Description
The keywords for the 21st century are “food,” “resources,” “environment,” and “region.” The various “strengths” of living things must be put into effect in order to secure the resources needed to support the ever-increasing human population, while protecting the limited environment of this earth. Agriculture is the field of study that will lead the way in the 21st century through systematic, comprehensive research on these critical issues.
With a history of more than 100 years, the Ehime University Faculty of Agriculture seeks to solve the various problems related to food, resources, and the environment and to create a recycling-oriented society that harmonizes humans and nature. Its goal is to train individuals who, on the basis of a thorough understanding of the phenomena of nature and the concept of circularity (recycling), have acquired a high level of specialized knowledge and skill in areas such as the development and dissemination of biological production technologies, use and management of biological resources, and the conservation and creation of environments, and can contribute to the creation of a recycling-oriented society that harmonizes people and nature.
