Material & Biological Engineering Course
The Material and Biological Engineering Course aims to foster chemistry engineers who are also proficient in biology. Students first learn and understand the fundamental principles of chemistry, metals and biology, based on the atoms and molecules that compose materials. Later, in specialized subjects, they learn how to design substances with specific functions, as well as how to develop production systems.
In addition, the curriculum appends metal-based lectures and inorganic chemistry corresponding to metal process companies. In fourth year, the course is divided into the Material Engineering Course, which emphasizes industrial chemistry and metal material engineering, and the Biological Engineering Course, which focuses on the use of bio functions.
Ultimately, we aim at fostering practical and creative engineers with wide-ranging expertise that enables them to tackle complex tasks outside their major field. To do so, our students also learn basic specialized knowledge of Mechanical Systems, Electronics and Civil Engineering, and study cross-disciplinary subjects common to all four courses.
