Educational Goal and Three Policies of the Chemical Engineering Program

Educational Goal

Our Educational Philosophy is to produce “highly specialized professionals who will aspire to achieve harmony between human society, the natural environment and technology, and sustainability, who will propose new technologies/industrial structures from an international perspective, and who will be able to communicate their message locally and globally”. To put the philosophy into practice, we aim to “develop human resources who will possess a broad perspective and be able to play a key role globally as professionals in chemical engineering”. To realize this objective, we work to “nurture professionals in chemical engineering who will have the ability of flexible thinking and inquisitiveness, who will be able to pursue world-leading technologies, who will have the ability of ethical judgment, and who will play a creative and leading role in society.

Diploma Policy of the Chemical Engineering Program

According to the diploma policy of the university and the Educational Goals of the Master’s Course, the Graduate School of Science and Technology, and those of the Chemical Engineering Program, we will confer a Master’s Degree on students who have obtained the designated credits at the designated GPA, passed the examination on Master’s Thesis and the final examination and who have acquired the following abilities.

  1. the capacity for flexible thinking and inquisitiveness, and the ability to propose creative and viable solutions to problems,
  2. the ability to realize that it is their mission to utilize their knowledge in chemical engineering to play a key role globally, and
  3. the ability to make the best use of advanced knowledge and ethical judgment to cope with new technologies.

Curriculum Policy of the Chemical Engineering Program

We have in place, pursuant to the following principle, high-quality education that we provide through the curriculum of the degree program designed to develop human resources who will have a broad perspective as professionals in chemical engineering and who will be able to play an important role globally.

  • We conduct lectures and exercises in various processes such as reaction/separation/energy transmission and conversion/resource-recycling/functional material processing, and in the advanced system engineering that brings together these elemental processes, and provide specialized education to develop human resources who will have the ability to create and evaluate highly sustainable, high-performance materials and the fusion technology of environment and biotechnology, to play a key role in constructing energy systems which will contribute to the sustainable development of human society in harmony with the environment, and to construct environmentally friendly materials production system.

Admission Policy of the Chemical Engineering Program

1. Desired qualities

  • commit to the Educational Objective of the Chemical Engineering Program and have the sufficient basic academic ability necessary to acquire advanced professional ability through the education and research offered by the Program,
  • desire to develop the ability of flexible thinking and maintain inquisitiveness to acquire the ability to solve problems flexibly and creatively,
  • desire to make the best use of knowledge in chemical engineering to play a key role globally, and
  • desire to acquire advanced knowledge necessary to keep pace with new technologies and to develop the ability of ethical judgment.

2. Capabilities desired in students

Students must have the sufficient basic academic ability which is necessary to acquire advanced professional skills through the education and research offered by the Chemical Engineering Program. However, if you apply for the Special Admissions in Other Fields, you are required to have the knowledge/skills in your specialized field and foreign language ability (English).

3. Basic Principle of Candidate Screening

The General Selection (oral examination) evaluates applicants’ knowledge/ability in the specialized fields of the program and aptitude/motivation all of which are necessary to achieve the status of human resource defined in the Educational Goals through an interview including an oral examination. Also to be taken into account is the grade achieved at the school the applicant has graduated from and the Statement of Reasons for Applying.

The General Selection (written examination) evaluates applicants’ knowledge/ability in the specialized field of the program, reading comprehension in a foreign language (English) and aptitude/motivation through an examination on the specialized subject (questions from the specialized fields of Chemical Engineering) and a foreign language subject (English), and an interview. These qualities are necessary to achieve the status of human resource described in the Educational Goals. Also to be taken into account is the grade achieved at the school the applicant has graduated from.

The Special Admissions in Other Fields appraises applicants’ ability, aptitude and motivation all of which are necessary to achieve the status of the sort of human resource outlined in the Educational Goals. The appraisal is conducted through an interview, including an oral examination. Also to be taken into account is the grade achieved at the school the applicant has graduated from.

The Special Selection for Those in Employment evaluates applicants’ knowledge/ability related to the specialized field of the Program and aptitude/motivation both of which are necessary to become the sort of human resources defined in the Educational Goals through an oral examination. Also to be taken into account is the grade achieved at the school the applicant has graduated from and the Performance (Operation) Report.

The International Students Special Admissions evaluates students’ knowledge/ability in the specialized fields of the Program, reading comprehension in a foreign language (Japanese or English) and the aptitude/motivation necessary to achieve the status of human resource outlined in the Educational Goals through an examination on the specialized subject (questions from the specialized fields of Chemical Engineering) and a foreign language subject (Japanese or English), and an interview.
