The IT industry underwent a tremendous evolution in the second half of the 20th century and has since achieved remarkable development based on a foundation of ultra-fine nanofabrication technology. The fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, and environmental technology have sprung from this fertile soil.
By developing these next-generation technologies further, the Department of Applied Chemistry aims to develop new materials, building from the atomic and molecular levels, and expand new learning that can lead to solutions to environmental problems and resource and energy issues.
- New science/technology department capable of responding to the unknown potential and increased importance of chemistry.
- Three core disciplines of synthetic chemistry, materials chemistry, and environmental and energy materials.
- In cooperation with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, a joint curriculum is being offered, giving students the opportunity to study related fields and develop a broad perspective.
