Study Flow

Building the base of engineers who can play an active part in society through various experiments, exercises, and practice.

Participate in small-group seminars from the first year and thoroughly solidify your knowledge base
Small-group seminars are offered from year one, with the instructor carefully guiding you on fundamental thinking in specialized areas, on undertaking experiments and practice, on handling experimental and measuring instruments, and more.

Select the course that suits your desired future and toward more specialized study
Keeping in mind the type of occupation that you hope to be involved with in the future, in year two you will select a course* that enables more selective study in a more specialized field. The chance to be involved in experiments and practice also increases during this year through various seminars.

Participate in experiments and practice almost every day, and transform your wisdom to be able to use the knowledge you obtain
The opportunity for experiments and practice will increase even further in your third year, the content of study becomes even more advanced, and more in-depth learning is accomplished. The aim is at a deeper understanding of the knowledge that you have learned to this point as theory.

Develop even further through graduate research and polish your ability to be useful in the real world
In the fourth year, you will select a theme for your graduation research based on the expertise that you have studied to that point. Forge an aptitude for making presentations and refine your skills toward having an active role in your chosen specialty field.

Course Content

  • Biology
    Participating in research toward medical innovation, including drug discovery
    Investigate the mechanisms of life that have yet to be answered and challenge the development of new medical technologies. This course unites bioinformatics, which employs both biotechnology and computer technology, with conventional biology, toward study that enables the development of pharmaceuticals that will lead to the complete recovery of conditions seen as incurable, such as cancer and new infectious diseases, and the investigation into cell function in regenerative medicine.
  • Environment
    Scientifically approaching nature and the food that is indispensable to life from the perspectives of biology and environmental chemistry
    All "environments" are subjects of study and research in this course. Not just the natural environment, but also the living environments and food that humans produce, including "food, clothing and shelter". While valuing the "civilized" manner of existence of today, you will study scientifically how to maintain and improve the healthy environments that are indispensable to life. The aim of this course is at solving environmental problems from new perspectives and with new technologies.
