Electronics and Materials Science Department has the distinctive feature that it offers the possibility to study topics from both fields of Electronics and Materials Energy Chemistry.

Curriculum stages

During the first year, basic science and general studies courses will be offered in liberal arts, mathematics, physics, chemistry, English, and so on with the main aim of offering to students a wide range of knowledge, as well as basic academic and language skills for proceeding to the expert-level studies.
In the second year, students will have to select one of the two specialization tracks in either Electronic Devices Physics or Materials Energy Chemistry.
During second and third years, in the Electronic Devices Physics track, students can take more specialized subjects related to electronics, such as Electronic Circuits and Imaging Devices. On the other hand, in the Materials Energy Chemistry track, students can attend more specialized subjects such as Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Materials, Energy-related Chemistry and so on. One special characteristic, though is that even after cohorts branch out into either of the two specializations track, many subjects are common for both courses, such as Basic Electrical Circuits, Electrochemical Energy and others.
During the fourth year, graduation research begins and students have the possibility to become engaged in international-level state-of-the-art research and to test their research capabilities.

As described above, our department aims at fostering the graduation of experts with basic knowledge of electronics in addition to basic professional knowledge of materials energy chemistry related to electronics, based on which they can contribute to the progress of the society. Such experts are currently strongly sought after by the society. It is possible to be employed in companies which are closely related to the topics of each of the courses, but there are also many companies that seek experts with knowledge in both electronics and materials chemistry. In fact, merged knowledge from both fields of electronics and materials has been incorporated in many industrial products for personal use. In Japan in particular, there are key industries for electrical equipment and automobile or automobile parts, the choices of employment after graduation are greatly expanded.
In addition, after graduation, more than half of the students go on to Graduate School (Master’s degree for two years) to further acquire highly-specialized knowledge.
