Department of Chemistry and Biological Science

Students research the structure and nature of substances and closely examine the wonders of life phenomena.

"Chemistry" is a field of study whose research covers the nature of substances as well as their potentialities starting from the molecular level. Building on this foundation, "Biological Science" seeks to understand the nature of life by investigating the nature of biological molecules and their interactions in actions.

Today, the studies on these two closely related fields are influential and the Department challenges the sciences for the contribution to environment,resources, life and information, and the engineering for the industries which advance in the welfare of humankind and in the building of better society. Thus, students study the five basic areas of, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological science. By doing so, we aim to support students in becoming researchers or engineers who can cover diverse areas, to cultivate knowledge, technology and methodologies fit for a technical expert, and to assist in their ability to execute flexible analyses. We have prepared a curriculum that can respond to students' motivation to study by implementing suitable lectures on such topics from the basic science to cutting-edge researches, several experiment-based courses for students to conduct tasks on their own in courses where they can practice in society or industries.
