In the Materials Science and Engineering Course, the scientific study of metals, ceramics and semiconductors are the main focus. Investigation of their physical properties, as well as their microscopic origins, is one of the main subjects tackled by our students. The development of innovative industrial processes for fabricating materials is another important subject studied. A wide variety of educational topics ranging from basic science, e.g. Solid State Physics, Solid State Chemistry, and Ceramics, to the current technological applications of materials, are covered in the lectures.
The main feature of the Materials Science and Engineering Course curriculum is that of a "Step-by-Step" educational program, covering topics from fundamental concepts to applications. Students begin to study nano-scale level phenomena such as atomic structure and electron states that are directly linked with the nature of materials, and subsequently study their physical and chemical properties on the macro-scale. Through this course, we aim to progress beyond traditional materials science and engineering, taking an active interest in the ideas and methods of nano-science and nano-technology. We conduct educational research concerning the development of next-generation advanced materials and alternative resources that it is hoped will replace the use of rare elements.
We are cultivating creative academics and engineers able to tackle the various technological issues facing both Japan and the world in general, through their material science and engineering knowledge and education.
