Course description and aims

Learn concrete examples and prospects from the fundamental science based on the latest research topics in the field of materials and chemical engineering, mainly focusing on freshmen from the School of Materials and Chemical Engineering. It also aims at acquiring the attitude of study learning by gathering information themselves.

Student learning outcomes

Understand the task assignment of materials and chemical engineering.


Fundamentals and techniques, research themes required for materials and chemical engineering

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This lecture is an omnibus format by six faculty teachers and introduces the latest research topics in Materials and Chemical Engineering as an example.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Molecular design and synthesis in organic and polymeric materials Learn the foundation and application to advanced researches of organic and polymeric materials
Class 2 Fuel cells and their constituent materials Learn the structure of automotive fuel cells and their constituent materials, and understand the importance of material research
Class 3 Development of inorganic materials using supercomputer Current development of inorganic materials using state-of-the-art supercomputers will be discussed, alongside "materials informatics", which is a new paradigm of materials science that deploys theoretical calculation and artificial intelligence technology.
Class 4 Design of functional polymers for next-generation by spectroscopic approach Understand the importance of spectroscopic methods to design next-generation functional polymers.
