The Department of Chemical Systems and Engineering comprises five courses: Molecular Systems Chemistry, Molecular Information Chemistry, Bioprocess Chemistry, Biochemical Engineering, and Environment-Benign Systems Engineering. Specifically, the Molecular Systems Chemistry Course offers education and research opportunities aimed at discovering new functional materials based on molecular physical chemistry, and then developing processing methods to learn about their functions. The Molecular Information Chemistry Course provides education and research opportunities aimed at developing a system that measures materials at an atomic and molecular level to uncover a material's new features, designing a system of converting chemical information, and designing the functionality of materials with a new systemization of atomic molecules. The Bioprocess Chemistry Course offers education and research opportunities aimed at developing productive processes. The Biochemical Engineering Course conducts education and research aimed at developing novel techniques for tissue engineering and bioartificial organs related to biotechnology, and at designing bioreactors utilizing cells or livestock to produce useful biological substances. Finally, the Environment-Benign Systems Engineering Course offers education and research opportunities aimed at analyzing and originating a large scale system of environments, energy resources, and other resources needed for human survival.

Molecular Systems Chemistry This course covers the development of chemical processes with functions of highly controlled molecular clusters. It also offers education and research opportunities aimed at analyzing the physicochemical properties of molecular clusters, and at demonstrating and controlling fluids to produce materials effectively. (Process Physical Chemistry, Fluid Property, Molecule
Molecular Information Chemistry This course offers education and research opportunities that involve developing analytical instrumentation using a laser to find new phenomena in science, as well as finding practical applications, and physical chemistry related to environmental chemical analysis methods or molecular nanotechnology with bioanalytical chemistry applications. In addition, this course attempts to design and develop a chemical conversion method.
Bioprocess Chemistry By using biological or biochemical reactions, one can produce various useful chemicals for people. This course teaches and studies issues of bio-processes from such fundamental angles as organic chemistry, biochemistry, reaction rate theory, chemistry and biochemistry measure, and mass transfer engineering.
Biochemical Engineering This course offers education and research opportunities to develop novel techniques for tissue engineering and bioartificial organs related to biotechnology, and to design bioreactors utilizing cells or livestock to produce useful biological substances, as well as the design and synthesis of biomaterials and biologically active compounds.
Environment-Benign
Systems Engineering
This course offers an education and research opportunities related to the development, design, and management of an environmental measuring system, energy use system, and substance producing system in order to address global environmental and energy problems, and also to build a system of environmentally benign materials production.
