Materials and Energy Technology Course

This division aims to foster capable human resources who can play key roles in the development of new functional materials and energy-related materials, as well as in fields associated with these materials. To achieve this objective, this division provides students with practical training and experiments in physics, chemistry, and physical chemistry so they will be thoroughly acquainted with the basic principles of these basic subjects. Students learn systematically proven material production processes and practical applications of physical chemistry for the development of various types of batteries and energy-related materials. Through graduation studies in the fourth year, students are educated and trained to cultivate comprehensive and flexible ways of thinking that will help enhance their capability of developing new materials from broader points of view without adhering to conventional organic, inorganic, and metallic materials; developing and analyzing thin membrane, fine particle, and other extreme material production processes; devising new environmental preservation measures; and developing innovative energy resources. This division requires students to acquire basic principles in physical chemistry essential for the successful development of new functional materials and energy-related materials and associated works. Students are also required to become familiar with new materials production processes and energy resource development technologies.
