Features of the School

Taking on the challenges of exploring the fundamental principles of chemistry and creating the technology for their application

Chemistry covers many fields from atomic- and molecular-level phenomena occurring in the natural world, to the invention of functional materials suited to our environment-conscious modern society.Chemistry supports the development and production of the various chemical products that underpin our daily lives.

Scientists with creativity and technical skills

We motivate you through chemistry to contribute to the development and enrichment of science, technology and culture in order to coexist with nature and sustain a high quality of life, as well as to contribute to various aspects of society.

Introduction

Outline

Admission Policy

Chemistry covers many fields from atomic- and molecular-level phenomena occurring in the natural world, to the invention of functional materials suited to our environment-conscious modern society. Chemistry supports the development and production of the various chemical products that underpin our daily lives. We motivate you through chemistry to contribute to the development and enrichment of science, technology and culture in order to coexist with nature and sustain a high quality of life.
We welcome students who are willing to think independently, are highly motivated academically, and are eager to tackle the challenges of unknown fields.

Education System

We emphasize integrated education. Two core programs are offered: Advanced and Applied Chemistry Core programs. Students can choose a major in advanced chemistry or applied chemistry. In the first year, a liberal arts education will allow students to acquire basic knowledge. In the second year, students are assigned to one of the two programs of their choice and further pursue in-depth knowledge until the end of their fourth year. We inspire students and educate them to become outstanding researchers and engineers with a solid knowledge of chemistry.

Our Principles and Goals

Chemistry at every level from atoms to the universe, from fundamentals to application

Natural science is a vast field that is developing rapidly, and for which chemistry is becoming increasingly important. In order to support the growing needs of society, we prepare you for a career as an outstanding researcher, engineer or educator.

Chemistry in connection with a wide range of natural scientific fields

Chemistry is closely related to physics, biology, medical science, pharmaceutical science, and engineering science, and serves as the backbone of natural science. Therefore, we aim to support students in becoming researchers or engineers by cultivating their knowledge and skills of chemistry in the atomic world, nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy conversion, medicine, and functional materials.

2 Core Programs

Advanced Chemistry Core Program

This program is organized by subject to study basic principles to clarify advanced material at both atomic and molecular levels.

Applied Chemistry Core Program

This program is organized by subject to study applied chemistry management, based on skills in both chemistry and engineering.

6 Advanced Programs

Advanced Material Analysis Program

Learn advanced theory and methodology of material analysis

To clarify both the properties and reaction behaviors of various new functional materials, comprehensive knowledge is studied to learn manifold and logical thinking.
