Understand the foundation of 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 foundation and latest research topics in Materials and Chemical Engineering as an example. Also, group discussion will be conducted on each topic.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Advanced processing metallurgy for up-grade material recycling system and multi-material-intended structure design. Advanced metal fabrication processes and dissimilar metal joining technologies for global environment protection are introduced with the latest related research works
Class 2 Introduction of functional materials for energy and environment Functional materials for solar light energy conversion will be introduced. Students can understand the basic principle and materials for solar cell and photocatalysis, which have already widely been applied in the field of energy production and environmental purification.
Class 3 Construction of aromatic rings to synthesize optically active aromatic compounds New trends to design and understand the principle of softmaterials are explained by intriducing the exampleas of Superelastic Organic Crystals and Ultra High thermal conductivity of Polymers.
Class 4 Thermal energy storages by using chemical reactions Undrestnding methodology of chemical thermal energy storages for utilization of renewabe, nuclear and waste heats.
Class 5 Structural Control and Function of Organometallic Complexes Please explain some organic compounds can be utilized as the ligands for metal complexes.
Class 6 Design of polymers for next generation by chemical approach The aim of this lecture is to understand the importance of chemistry to design next-generation polymeric materials  with functionality such as self-healing ability and mechano-responsivity.
