The Department of Chemical Engineering at the Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University aims at the construction of an accademic platform that can adapt to structural reorganization in the chemical industry and other core industries such as the electronics industry, as well as to social and economic changes, and at the cultivation of specialist researchers and engineer equipped with broad perspective and comprehensive judgment to support this platform. It also aims to position the department as an international center of accademic research and a core institution for the training of researchers. For this purpose, we are making improvements to the existing department, and pursuing joint research with the Advanced Engineering Research Center of Graduate School of Engineering and other labs, to foster researchers who can create and implement advances in interdisciplinary fields of engineering.
