Agro-Biomedical Science Group seminar

There is a wide range of issues associated with food and health from familiar problems to global issues. In this group seminar, each student group survey food and health issues, and propose the solution idea to solve a particular issue. Specifically, each group will first identify “issues related to food and health” and investigate the social, scientific, and business backgrounds related to the issues. Then, based on the research, they will put together a proposal for solving the issue, including elements of research, social practice, and business value, and make a group presentation. In addition to research and discussion by student groups, the group seminar will include excursions to related companies and research institutes, and business thinking training.

Introduction of Agro-Biomedical Science

“Food” and “Health,” two issues central to human existence, are inseparable in their relationship. Food-related health problems and lifestyle-related diseases, threats to food security, and the increasing cost of medical care are just some of the many challenges society now faces. In this course, students will study the scientific fundamentals to understand such Food and Health issues, especially focusing on “Relationship between Food and Health”, “Health Security”, and “Food Security”. The global view of “Health and Food related issues” will be given by the instructors from University of Tsukuba as well as University of Bordeaux and National Taiwan University. In addition, to understand “Research Ethics”, we will introduce the learning material, GLidD, in the course. 1. General Overview: What Is Agro-Biomedical Science? (Yoshito Kumagai,

Online(Synchronous). face-to-face Students are evaluated by their class participation and report assignments. A passing grade (“C” or greater) requires students to sufficiently show an understanding of global issues in food and health from their report assignments. A “B” grade may be awarded to students who, in addition to this, show a thorough understanding of issues in food security and health security from their report assignments. Furthermore, an “A” grade may be awarded to students who, in addition to these, show to be consistently participative in class through questions and discussion, and show that they are able to connect their classwork with their Comprehensive Report on Integrated Themes and career pathway planning. The deadline of the report submission is two weeks after the last lecture.

Special Lecture in Architectural Design Theory

住宅論、建築論、都市論の視点から敷地周辺の環境や都市を観察し、その結果がどのように建築意匠に定着されるかについて、具体的な事例を取り上げて講述する。また、建築意匠論の実践として、受講生は各自で建築プロジェクトの提案を行う。提案は、任意で設定した敷地のコンテクストを分析した上で行うものとし、その場所で可能な建築意匠のあり方について学修する。授業の最後に、各自がまとめた建築プロジェクトの発表会と講評を行う。 Degree Programs in Comprehensive Human Sciences Master’s Program in Design Tsukuba Campus (汎用コンピテンス)知の活用力
