Chemistry and Biology

The future technology will be based on materials engineering and biotechnology, and therefore the aim of this department is to educate a student by providing the bases of these two branches and to produce a chemical engineer with flexible thought and ability to cope with new technology who is familiar with materials engineering and biological engineering. At the lower grades, students learn basic subjects concerning chemistry and biology. The upper grades can choose either “Materials Engineering Course” or “Biological Engineering Course” and take other elective subjects as well as their own ones. Furthermore, through experiments and graduation research, they can develop the practical and creative ability.
