Department of Applied Chemistry


Fostering Chemical Engineers Able to Address Wide-Ranging Issues

To safeguard the future of humanity, it will be vital to find solutions to pressing issues such as those related to energy and climate change. Students in this department study chemical phenomena and develop new substances that help to provide solutions to critical problems facing humankind. Applied chemistry encompasses a wide array of subjects ranging from physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and polymer chemistry to medical science, pharmaceutical science, agriculture, and food chemistry. In other words, the scope of applied chemistry spans from the micro-level to the global level. This department places an emphasis on cultivating students' overall competence as well as on the practical study of science.

Project-Based Learning Inspires an Interest in Chemical Phenomena

Whether it's basic chemical experiments conducted by first-year students or advanced graduate research conducted by fourth-year students, this department is designed to help students deepen their understanding of chemistry through hands-on experiments. This curriculum philosophy is perhaps best embodied in our project-based learning classes, where small groups of students plan their own experiments and conduct them under their own initiative in well-equipped laboratories.


Pursuing the Next Level of Chemical Synthesis for Industrial Development

Subjects taught in this curriculum are interrelated, such that students acquire a comprehensive base of academic skills while learning applied subjects at the same time. Students study and conduct research on subjects at the forefront of synthesis and material technologies—for example, nanotechnology and biotechnology—so that they can contribute to future technological innovations.
