Motto of wind engineering education and research

"Selection of research theme with purpose rooted in affection for human beings, earth resources, and air environment"
Affection of human beings
Research on strong wind disaster prevention
Affection of earth resources
Research of ventilation
Affection of air environment
Research on air pollution and wind environment

All researches on wind effects on buildings and the urban environment must be motivated by "Affection" of human beings, the earth, and the air environment. A deep feeling of "Affection" of these things is sure to produce good ideas and high attainment targets, leading to extra research efforts. This is the motto of wind engineering research and education at the Tokyo Institute of Polytechnics.
