The study of chemistry is for clarifying the laws of material conversion, for synthesizing unknown compounds, and for clarifying the mechanisms of manifestations of physical properties. In the Department of Chemical Science and Engineering, our aim is to deeply understand the basic properties and the responsiveness of substances at an atomic and molecular level, and to study the most advanced chemical technology systems. In the curriculum, study and education goals are set in order to develop individuals who are capable of pioneer chemical technologies that are essential for sustaining a rich society. Our aim is to produce scientists, engineers, and researchers who can take responsibility for society and the environment in the 21st century, and expert professionals who open new industries and civilizations.
We live surrounded by a multitude of different chemically processed materials. The clothes we wear, the plastic on computer components, the medicine we take and the fuel we use in our cars are some examples of what humans have created to make our lives better. In order to maintain and develop our society we must find sustainable ways to obtain these materials. It is the goal of the Department of Chemical Science and Engineering to deeply understand chemical phenomena in all their forms, from research into atomic and molecular interactions, to studies on global dynamics. We endeavor to offer a leading-edge education to aspiring scientists and engineers who will build a better tomorrow.
