In order to foster graduates who can make a contribution to the chemical industry, it is important not only to enhance their expertise in applied chemistry from engineering aspect but also to integrate them with scientific basic chemistry. In this course, we offer three fields of education and research—surface and energy chemistry of inorganic chemistry, organic and polymer chemistry of organic chemistry, and physical chemistry and chemical systems of physical chemistry. We foster chemical engineers and researchers who have a high level of expertise from basic to applied chemistry and can contribute to the sustainable development of the local and international communities.

Fields of Surface/Energy Chemistry

Students will study analytical chemistry, surface chemistry, electrochemistry and environmental chemistry with the basic knowledge of inorganic chemistry.
We educate and research on environment-friendly functional inorganic materials, materials for batteries with high energy density, and the surface function control of catalysts.

Fields of Organic/Polymer Chemistry

Students will study organic reaction chemistry and polymer synthesis chemistry with the basic knowledge of organic chemistry. We educate and research on organic chemical products, pharmaceutical products, functional polymeric materials and organic electronic materials.

Fields of Physical Chemistry/Chemical Systems

Students will study quantum chemistry, reaction chemistry, and materials chemistry with the basic knowledge of physical chemistry. We educate and research on the creation of useful crystals, molecular structure analysis, and the functional expression, maintenance and control of structural, energy-converting and molecular materials.

The attractive point is deepening the knowledge of the most interesting research topic

OGAWA Shinpei

Through lectures, the future potential of organic semiconductor products impressed me. And then I’m interested in research on organic electronics. I am currently studying as a member of the Organic Function Chemistry Laboratory. The interesting points are the control of the electron flow on organic reactions and how to create the desired substance. I want to increase my knowledge and technical capability in the Graduate School and hope to work where I can utilize the knowledge in the future. In high school, I was absorbed in my studies and my club activities, so I experienced some concerns when deciding what to do after graduation. I think it’s important to take a time to think about own future little by little.

Career Paths

Chemistry is not simply the basis of manufacturing. It is also essential to the resolution of the problems of modern society, such as environmental issue, resource and energy issue, and food and water issue. Therefore, society’s need for chemical expert will be high, and high rate of employment is expected. Furthermore, we recommend post-graduate studies to acquire a higher level of expertise.
