Tohoku University Department of Applied Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biomolecular Engineering

Academic Programs Academic Programs

Students who enter the Department of Applied Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biomolecular Engineering begin with a general curriculum that is the same throughout the University and covers basic engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and languages (which form the basis for engineering) and basic engineering classes such as basic information science. Subsequently, they add specialized courses that are shared by all three of the Department's specialized courses (Applied Chemistry; Chemical Engineering; and Bioengineering) and that provide the basis for student specializations, followed by individualized courses that are arranged systematically into specialized curricula.

After the students complete four semesters, students choose to pursue one of the Department's three specialized courses (Applied Chemistry; Chemical Engineering; and Bioengineering). Each course has its own series of specialized lectures, but students who are particularly ambitious can complete all of the lectures in all of the courses. To ensure that students acquire knowledge and experience that cannot be absorbed through lectures alone, other modes of learning are provided, including hands-on training and experiments. In this way, they acquire the knowledge and tools they need to build a richer life.
