Educational Goal and Three Policies of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program

Educational Goal

The Educational Philosophy of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program is to “develop professionals who aspire to seek harmony among members of human society, the natural environment and technology, and to propose new technologies/industrial structure from a global perspective and communicate with both the local and global communities”. To put this philosophy into practice, the program works toward the development of human resources who have a broad perspective as professionals in chemistry and biotechnology and can play an active role in global society. To achieve this end, the program aims to “develop professionals who have learned the chemistry related to life phenomena and can play a key role in the research and technological development in new substances and functional materials, biotechnology, analysis and scientific measurement, pharmaceutical and medical materials, environmental conservation and energy”.

Diploma Policy of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program

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

  1. a good personality, social skills, a good sense of ethics and the ability to learn the laws of nature/environment and the basic knowledge of sciences to maintain the symbiosis with nature/environment,
  2. basic knowledge and ability in mathematics, engineering basics and information processing technology, and chemical engineering,
  3. ability to make the best use of their knowledge in chemistry and biology to discover and evaluate new materials, biotechnologies and pharmaceuticals,
  4. skills in everyday/international communication, and
  5. ability to use knowledge/skills to assess a given demand comprehensively, and to design and propose viable solutions.

Curriculum Policy of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program

We have the following education in practice to develop human resources who have learned the branch of chemistry related to life phenomena and who are able to play a key role in the research and development of new materials and functional materials, biotechnology, analysis and chemical measurement, pharmaceuticals and medical materials, environmental conservation, and energy.

We organize lectures and exercises in the fields related to organic/inorganic/polymer chemistry, life-science-related molecular engineering, functional materials chemistry, environmental chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, protein engineering, cell engineering, bioengineering, drug discovery chemistry and medical materials chemistry. The aim of our specialized education is to develop professionals who will have a good understanding about the mechanisms and functions of living organisms and who will play a key role in the discovery and evaluation of the sort of substances/materials that contributes to the harmony between human beings and the earth’s environment and to the sustainable development of human society.

Admission Policy of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program

1. Desired qualities

  • understand the Educational Objectives of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program; and have sufficient academic skills necessary to acquire advanced professional skills through the education and research offered by the program;
  • think flexibly; be inquisitive; desire to acquire the ability to solve problems flexibly and creatively;
  • desire to make the best use of chemistry and biotechnology to play an active role globally;
  • desire to acquire advanced knowledge and ethical judgment to respond to new technology;

2. Capabilities desired in students

Applicants are required to have sufficient academic skills necessary to acquire advanced professional skills through the education and research offered by the Chemistry and Biotechnology 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 a foreign language ability (English).

3. Basic Principle of Candidate Screening

The General Selection (oral examination) evaluates applicants’ knowledge/ability related to the specialized fields of our Program and aptitude/motivation which are necessary to achieve the status of human resource outlined 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 related to the specialized fields of the Program, reading comprehension in a foreign language (English) and aptitude/motivation through an examination on the specialized subject and a foreign language subject (English), and an interview. These qualities are necessary to achieve the status of human resource defined 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 will evaluate applicants’ ability/aptitude/motivation all of which are necessary to achieve the status of human resource described in our 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.

The Special Selection for Those in Employment assesses applicants’ knowledge/ability related to the specialized field of the Program and aptitude/motivation both of which are necessary to achieve the status of the sort of human resource outlined 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 applicants’ knowledge/ability related to the specialized fields of the Program, reading comprehension in a foreign language (Japanese or English) and aptitude/motivation through an examination on the specialized subjects and a foreign language subject (Japanese or English), and an interview. These qualities are necessary to achieve the status of human resource outlined in the Educational Goals.

The English Course Special Admissions evaluates applicants’ English proficiency, knowledge/ability and aptitude in the specialized field and motivation through the examination on foreign languages (English) and of the specialized subject (questions from the specialized field of the Chemistry and Biotechnology Program) and through the results of an interview. These abilities are necessary to become professionals described in the Educational Goals. Also to be taken into account is the grade at the school the applicant has graduated from.
