Chemistry, Biotechnology, and Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemistry, Biotechnology, and Chemical Engineering conducts research regarding material and life sciences on the foundations of key technology to support a sustainable society. Studies comprise of three courses: In the Applied Chemistry Course and Biotechnology Course, research is centered on high-functional materials, new substance creation, chemical measurement, environmental engineering, biomimetic device, molecular conjugates, and drug/medical-supplies development. The Chemical Engineering Course covers high-functional material processing, reaction/separation process, resource circulation process, environmental conservation/improvement, energy utilization devices, material production process, and bioprocess.

Taking a practical approach by tackling the subjects of health, safety, environment, materials, energy, life phenomena and other such pressing issues of our time, we develop researchers and engineers whose capabilities cover everything from basic research to advanced engineering.

Educational Goals (Philosophy) and Prospective Students

Our mission is to educate highly-specialized, globally-minded professionals who will pursue harmony between society, science, technology, and the natural environment and can bring new science, technology, and industrial structure to the world. Prospective students should share our philosophy and have the basic academic ability to acquire advanced specialized abilities through research and study.
