International students can also apply.

In today’s world, there is a definite need for technologies that are inherently in harmony with the environment. More specifically, in Japan, as the first developed nation face to a rapidly aging society, knowledge of food and medicine as well as technological foundations are rapidly becoming a necessary commodity. In particular, there exist important issues in the fields of: harmony with the environment; resource-saving; development of chemical processes based in energy-saving technologies: high-performance materials: electronics: biotechnologies; new energy development: the search for performance in foodstuffs: prevention of lifestyle diseases, etc. All of the above are issues that can be tackled with applied chemistry and bioscience. Our goal is to produce capable chemical engineers, bio engineers, and professional people who are active in food and health with creative powers and a wide view to meet the social needs by developing the basic knowledge of subjects and applications.

This course is divided into two sections: applied chemistry and bioscience. By imparting students with broad-based foundational knowledge in both fields, we bring them to the level where they can become highly skilled chemical engineers, biotechnology specialists, food and health specialists, and more. Our graduates are also known for their broad perspective and high degree of creativity.
