The objective of the Department of Materials Science and Technology is to cultivate human resources who possess creative capabilities and new perspectives relating to materials engineering and to contribute broadly to human society, by clarifying the qualities of materials from a consistent and uniform view ranging from the atomic and molecular level to a macroscopic level while maintaining a linkage between each field regardless of the existing framework of materials, and by carrying out research and education with this as the basis.
