What is a “Faculty”?
There are currently three research organizations called “Faculties(研究院)” at Yokohama National University. Unlike Colleges and Graduate Schools (which are essentially educational institutions), these Faculties were established to promote research activities at the university more efficiently and effectively. Academic staff of the Engineering, Environment and Information Sciences and Urban Innovation departments belong to one of these Faculties and conduct their research along with their educational activities at the Colleges and Graduate Schools.
