Introduction

The Department of Advanced Materials Chemistry aims to develop an advanced workforce specializing in science to lead the field of fine chemistry, particularly in the area of new materials such as semi-conductors, precision ceramics, liquid crystals, functional high-polymers, organic metal compounds, nano-structured materials and superconductors. To achieve this aim, this major emphasizes the theories and experiments covering materials science, physical chemistry, organic chemistry and analytical chemistry. Students will also learn technologies related to new materials. In this way, graduates can apply what they have learned when employed by industry and continue higher research at graduate schools or research institutes or agencies.

Required Student Skills and Qualities

1. Analytical Ability
Talented individuals who possess problem-solving ability, deep understanding of various chemical applications area, and analytical ability related to the study of materials.

2. Mutual Understanding for Collaboration
Talented individuals who possess the ability to communicate in the areas of language, culture, and scientific capability, and have communication skills and social convergence capability for cooperation in not only business and research institutes, but also in the global environment.

3. Coherent & Creative Ability
Talented individuals who have the ability to scientifically observe and understand phenomenon in natural science, and are qualified to perform advanced materials chemistry-related research and tasks.

Career Paths after graduation

Graduates can take part in R&D pertaining to Advanced Materials Chemistry at national, state-funded or corporate research agencies related to chemistry. They may enter more typical chemistry industries such as petrochemicals, high-polymer chemistry, pharmaceutical and organic/inorganic chemistry and apply their chemistry knowledge. They will also expand and develop new areas in industrial fields such as semi-conductors and liquid crystals. In addition to hardware, they will also engage in software affairs based on new materials and chemistry.
