Chemistry that explains and unravels molecules that make up substances. Biotechnology that delves into gene-modification and fermentation utilizing the vital functions of living organisms. Deepening understanding of these two categories, students learn about the chemistry that can be applied to environmental issues and life, such as aqueous environments and cosmetics. Experiments in basic chemistry and biology are incorporated into each 1st and 2nd-year curriculum themed on the analysis of water, microorganisms, and cells. The most up-to-date experiment and research equipment such as DNA analysis devices and gene-modification experiment rooms and equipment including electronic microscopes and mass spectroscopes prepare students for the future. We develop human resources who will play an active role in research involving pharmaceutical products, foods, cosmetics, the environment, and the manufacturing industry.
