Department of Applied Chemistry

  The courses offered in this department cover a wide range of science and engineering relevant to development, regeneration and application of new functional materials, the effective utilization of chemical energy, and the utilization of bio-systems. It includes fundamentals and a wide range of applications in chemistry, resources engineering and physics as they relate to materials.  We aim at the development of newly advanced technologies which are in harmony with the environment. To realize our purpose, two divisions provide training for students to become sharpened engineers in each research field.

  1. Division of Molecular Chemistry
  2. Division of Chemical Engineering
