Department of Applied Chemistry and Biochemistry

Department Page

The Department of Applied Chemistry and Biochemistry provides education and research covering the fundamentals of chemistry all the way through to the latest applied research, in fields ranging from materials chemistry to biochemistry. Our program is based on our philosophy of training scientists and engineers who can think independently, understand the broader significance of chemistry, and harness their knowledge and skills for the good of society. The department consists of four major research groups, Chemistry for Molecular Engineering, Chemistry for Materials Science, Biochemical Engineering and Bio-Related Molecular Science. Through the collaboration of laboratories, students are broadly educated in the advanced topics of chemical engineering, covering most areas of organic, inorganic and biochemistry with a solid balance of basic and applied research.
