The Department of Materials Science and Technology aims to generate new materials and new engineering that contribute to the development of industry by exceeding the existing limits of engineering, and also cultivate human resources who contribute to society based on a foundation of specialization in materials science and technology.

  • Develop an education system where students can understand the characteristics of materials from a consistent and unified perspective from the atomic/molecular level to the macroscopic level, by comprehensively making use of basic science (physics, chemistry and biology).
  • Promote fusion and expansion of basic science based on free ideas, and aim to produce human resources full of creativity who are proficient in basic science.
  • Make full use of all-round liberal arts education at the Oshamambe Campus, which emphasize sociality, cooperativeness and self-motivation at the Katsushika Campus, and carry out specialized education that produces human resources who have mastered advanced, specialized knowledge in materials engineering and who possess a proper sense of ethics and abundant human qualities.
