Applied Chemistry

Objectives in Education and Research

Development of science and technology has been brought about not only prosperity of material civilization but also serious environmental problems such as global warming, environmental pollutions. In chemical industry, materials of high function and environment-friendly in the processes of production, usage, disposal, technology enabling the removal of contaminants and the recovery of rare resource have been required to be developed. In addition, the development of technology for the production and usage of renewable energy alternative to fossil fuel has become significant. The Applied Chemistry Course aims to foster researchers and engineers having not only extensive chemistry knowledge and skills, but also a broad culture and flexible and appropriate problem-solving skill, and to provide them to the international society as deserving human resources.

Diploma Policy

The Applied Chemistry Course’s research activity covers the core discipline of analytical, organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry, as well as the interdisciplinary of biological science and chemical engineering. Through classes, seminar and laboratory work, the course fosters students to acquire a deep understanding of knowledge and skills in the major chemistry field and a broad understanding of basic knowledge and advanced technology in the relevant chemistry field as well. A candidate of master degree as chemistry major is required to acquire the following abilities.
1. A planning skill to accomplish a given project based on the precise understanding of the project and collected necessary information.
2. Skills to conduct experiments along with a research plan and to interprete obtained results properly.
3. Skills to present and discuss his or her research results in chemistry conferences and as technical papers, and to complete his or her master thesis.
4. A Japanese skill to explain the significance of his or her project to other people appropriately, and a basic English skill to send and receive information precisely.

Corse requirement for the master degree of applied chemistry
1. Accomplish the laboratory project under the supervision of specific professor and submit master thesis by the deadline.
2. Pass the assessments of master thesis and oral defense, which will be examined by not only supervisor but also two more professors. In both assessments, approval requires over 60% of score.

Curriculum Policy

To acquire a deep understanding of knowledge and skills in the major chemistry field as well as a broad understanding of basic knowledge and advanced technology in the relevant chemistry fields, the Applied Chemistry Course provides 44 subjects as lectures (12 subjects provided in English). Master candidates must earn 18 and over credits including the subjects offered by a supervisor, which leads to acquire knowledge and skills related to the core topics in analytical, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry and the applied topics in biological science, chemical engineering. The laboratory project is offered to foster problem-discovering and -solving skills practically. In the latter half of the course after earning the credits, students may concentrate on the laboratory project to complete their master’s thesis.

Admission Policy

The Applied Chemistry Course dedicates to foster researchers and engineers having not only extensive chemistry skills but also broad culture and a high level of skill for problem-discovering, -establishing and -solving, and to produce deserving human resources to the international society.

We, applied chemistry course, will give a big welcome to the following students.
1. Students who have acquired basic knowledge and skills related to chemistry-based science and general engineering.
2. Students who can take the initiative in discovering and solving various issues related to chemistry by applying chemistry-based knowledge and skills
3. Students who are able to participate in operations related to chemistry with responsibility, ethics, and cooperativeness.
