Department of Chemical Engineering
Pursue sophisticated manufacturing that has a low environmental load.
In next-generation manufacturing, which creates a sustainable recycle-oriented society that preserves the bounty of nature and the earth’s environment, just making good products is not enough. It is also required to make products without wasting energy and other resources or placing a load on the environment. Chemical engineering is based on the natural sciences, including chemistry, physics, and biology but sometimes uses knowledge from the fields of the humanities and social sciences to create new sciences and technologies. This discipline systematizes manufacturing methodologies that are useful for improving the earth’s environment, society, and the quality of our lives. Chemical engineering not only provides knowledge related to substances and their reactions but also develops substances that are useful to society, and creates, designs, and controls new manufacturing processes.
Use of the wisdom of chemical engineering enables us to make full use of advanced chemical synthesis technology, nanotechnology, and biotechnology to build systems for synthesizing and producing new substances and materials, new environment-conscious energy systems, and innovative recycling technologies for a recycling-oriented society. The fruit of chemical engineering has been contributing considerably to fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) not only in the chemical industry but also in many other fields, including medicine, medical care, food, housing, clothing, electronics, machinery, steel, energy, the environment, and recycling.
The Department of Chemical Engineering teaches not only various elemental technologies but also knowledge and technology to comprehensively construct an entire system, thereby fostering independently-minded researchers and engineers who will play an active role in the international arena as leaders in research and development, and project commercialization in the future.
