Invitation to the nanoworld which manipulates atoms and molecules

   Nanotechnology is attracting attention as the fundamental technology of the 21st century. There is great hope for chemistry for which the mission is to create substances from atoms and molecules as its core technology. Since the dawn of civilization, mankind has been satisfying their probing intellectual curiosity, efflorescing scientific and industrial technologies and have been contributing to the progress of human society. The Applied Chemistry Function Course of Kyushu University aims to develop advanced chemistry including the development of optical functional organic molecules and organic EL devices by sophisticated molecular designs, development of high polymers with characteristics of high intensity, conductivity, medical usage and optics, development of environmental and energy materials focusing on ceramics, nano-biotechnology for biopolymer DNA and RNA, and building of the guiding principle of structures and reactions by computational chemistry. The diffusion of organic EL display TV, progress of medical technology by biopolymer and the realization of sustainable human society by the development of fuel cells are not a dream in the future. I hope you will participate in the nanoworld which manipulates atoms and molecules.

   You will have often heard the word nanotech. Nanotechnology is an area of research which creates a completely new function by designing, lining or organizing substances on a molecular or atomic level and it is the matrix of various industrial technologies. With the progress of science and technology in the recent years and by the merger with various fields and progress of collaborations, it is developing into a discipline which is indispensable for the future. Against this background, our Applied Chemistry Course has top-ranking findings and facilities in the world and is working towards the development of new technologies which can be applied in a wide range of fields including IT (Information Technology), environment and biotechnology, and the education of science which serves as their foundation. The goal of the Applied Chemistry Course is to open up new disciplines which will be responsible for the next generation.

The Applied Chemistry Course (Function Class) provides you

  • Advanced Chemistry Experties, 
  • Diverse Scientific Researches.

You are sure to find what you want to carry on and dreams in the future.
