Tokyo University of Science


Chemistry is an academic field that covers constructional principles and aspects of material changes from diverse perspectives, ranging from a micro perspective (atoms and molecules) to a macro perspective. The Department of Chemistry contributes to sustainably constructing an easily-livable society by producing environment-friendly substances that are academically meaningful and useful for human lives.

  • Contribute to advances in chemistry through research, in order to realize the university's philosophy of "advancement of science."
  • Produce researchers and engineers who possess fundamental scholastic ability regarding chemistry and interdisciplinary capabilities to support a broad range of fields, from life sciences to environmental sciences, as well as educators that represent the tradition of the university.
  • Let students acquire fundamentals for the knowledge to earnestly pursue, understand and advance chemistry.
