This course aims at learning the experimental principles and methods of physical chemistry and related knowledge that are required to carry out bachelor thesis research.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Conduct basic experiments required for bachelor thesis research.
2) Devise a troubleshooting method when the experiment fails.
3) Clearly note the purpose, results, and discussion of the experiment.
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
The experiment will be conducted after explaining the experiment in about 30 minutes.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
