HOME > ACADEMICS > Undergraduate School > Faculty of Science and Technology > Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry


The Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry carries out thorough education on the basics and application of chemistry, fosters researchers and engineers full of creativity, and provides education and research that looks towards future trends in the chemicals industry. Research topics include energy, which is the most important issue for human beings today, fields related to living organisms, functional materials and chemistry that is based on environmental harmony. In addition, as the gap between the basic scholastic ability of students and scientific technology, which is becoming specialized, should be filled, students are guided to true understanding of academics through experiences based on labs and discussions and easily understandable lectures.

  • Students are able to receive detailed guidance in labs and discussions, which serve as motivators.
  • In addition to basic scholastic ability regarding industrial chemistry as a specialty, students are also able to acquire laboratory techniques.
  • Students are able to systematically learn principles and application through education on the most recent research results.
  • Build up creativity in graduation research, through participation in cutting-edge research.
