For students seeking to become engineers able to play roles in all the various fields related to chemistry

Philosophy and Goals
For humanity to endure, we will need advanced material conversion technologies to enrich our lives; promote the biotechnology required in the life science, pharmaceuticals and foodstuff sectors; develop environmentally friendly materials, resource and energy-saving technologies; and devise the environmental systems required for coexistence with natural ecosystems. This program trains engineers and researchers to handle the challenges of interdisciplinary fields that are even more advanced than the usual specialized fields so that they can use their grounding in chemistry to provide solutions related to these vital issues.


Educational Goals
We train students to:
  1. Acquire practical, specialized expertise in everything from the basics of chemistry to cutting-edge technologies and practical skills—underpinned by profound knowledge of the fundamentals and principles of chemistry—in one of the fields of material conversion chemistry, biotechnology, environmental materials, and resource and energy conservation systems. They also pursue wide-ranging studies in other fields so they can provide solutions for the key issues noted in our philosophy and goals above.
  2. Develop strong problem-solving skills (technology development skills) in one of the specialized fields and pursue wide-ranging studies in other fields. We also ensure that they can identify the underlying causes of problems, unearth issues and select and develop methods of analysis, organization and research (experiment) through research activities and discussions with faculty advisors.
  3. Build communication and presentation skills that are also applicablein other countries, and that they improve these skills bypresenting research results at workshops and academic conferences in Japan and other countries.


Research fields
  • Life sciences
  • Organic chemistry
  • Inorganic chemistry and metals
  • Environment and systems


Teacher’s licenses and curator's credentials available:

Master’s degree holders who fulfill the prescribed requirements can acquire specialized junior and senior high school teacher’s certificates. The specialized teacher’s certificates this graduate school offers are listed below. A type 1 license is a prerequisite for acquiring a specialized teacher’s certificate, but that can be acquired by auditing undergraduate courses if the student does not have one.
  • Specialized junior high school teacher’s certificate (science)
  • Specialized senior high school teacher’s certificate (science and technical)
  • Curator's credentials
The undergraduate department offers curator’s credentials courses, but students can obtain these credentials by auditing undergraduate courses.
