Regardless of domestic or foreign, this is a subject to grant the unit to master course students who have off-campus experience in the fields of science and engineering relating to applied chemistry for a certain period. In this course, academic supervisor and coordinators of the program support the dispatch of students to overseas universities, companies or research organizations.
Students will choose Internship I or II, according to the total effective working hours.
I (1 credit): Longer than 40 hours and less tan 80 hours.
II (2 credits): Longer than 80 hours.
The Industrial fields related to chemical industry in Japan is an important technology areas that support the international community. It is important to study the actual state of industry with people from different fields and cultures and to get the opportunity to gain experience to contribute to discover and solve problems in an accommodating way. Through the off-campus experience in the field of science and engineering, this course aims to increase the general knowledge on leading-edge research and product development and intends to cultivate the ability demanded for future researchers and engineers by learning how to read the actual state.
