We aim to train students to become experts who have the comprehensive intellect necessary to gain a thorough understanding of the field, who will discover the physical and chemical properties of the materials necessary for building a new materials system that can contribute to the sustained development of a thriving society, who will make processes more efficient, and who have foundational knowledge and the ability to apply technology as it relates to recycling so that they can respond flexibly to the many fluctuating needs of society from a scientific and technological standpoint based in material science.
- We aim to organize an education program for training students to become professionals. In order to measure its effectiveness, we have continuous opportunities for students to evaluate their classes, FD activities among our professors, self-evaluation, and external evaluation, as we strive for constant program improvement and balance.
- We will continue to refine our expert-level education in the material sciences in order to equip students with the abilities to explore material structure, physical and chemical properties, and mechanical features from a broad perspective from the nano level to the macro level.
- We will strive to provide a rich education in the essential foundational theories needed for a comprehensive intellect that leads to thorough expertise.
- We will encourage students to gather new information and extrapolate problems, providing the most up-to-date information about new materials and recycling and the environment, both in Japan and abroad, so that students can solve problems in each of the research areas related to creating new materials, evaluating their properties, and the manufacturing process and recycling thereof.
- We will develop students’ abilities to discover issues, draft and carry out experiments, see issues from an academic viewpoint, make objective decisions, question information, have insight, think logically, and express themselves, through courses and dissertation research that require students to search, compile, and give oral presentations on academic papers.
What We Offer
This program is designed so that students can use the knowledge gained at the undergraduate level to take courses that cover materials engineering at a deeper level or take courses in applied and developmental subjects. This program is also designed so that students can gain the ability to gather information from the international community and use it to and draft and carry out research methods that aim to discover and resolve problems in each of the research areas related to creating new materials, evaluating their properties, and the manufacturing process and recycling thereof.
