About Tokyo Tech
School of Materials
and Chemical Technology Encompassing the Disciplines of Science
Tokyo Tech boasts top-level research teams in the fields of chemical and materials science and engineering, with some excellent achievements to their name. In the School of Materials and Chemical Technology, students learn how to improve our lives and solve environmental, resource, and energy issues by creating new substances and materials of direct use to society, and creating new methods for their production. The School consists of two departments — Chemical Science and Engineering, with its roots in molecular chemistry, and Materials Science and Engineering, with its roots in solid materials. Students will learn a broad range of basic theories related to matter and materials, and how these theories can be applied to better support our lives. We also have affiliated research centers designated as national research hubs for research in chemistry and materials, where students come into contact with and engage in cutting-edge research as they advance through their studies.
Experience the joy of discovering new materials and possibilities.
University research aims for breakthroughs that lead to the discovery of never-before-seen materials and substances. When you discover a novel substance, you come to appreciate this research and its impact on society.
Finding a field that matches your interests is easy, and your future options open up.
There is great diversity in substance and materials research, with everything from science to engineering topics. That is why substance and materials professionals are needed in all sorts of sectors, such as cars, machines, electrical devices, textiles, medicine, and energy.
This field is connected to key industries, so you do not need to worry about not finding a job.
In addition to plentiful options, this field is connected to areas crucial to Japanese industry, where many of our graduates are enjoying great success. It is fair to say that if you study hard, you will not have a problem finding a job — another benefit to studying at the School.
