Overview of the Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering and the Division of Chemical Sciences and Engineering

Hokkaido University reorganized the Department of Chemistry in its Graduate School of Science along with three chemistry-related divisions in its Graduate School of Engineering (the divisions of Chemical Process Engineering, Biotechnology and Macromolecular Chemistry, and Materials Chemistry) to form the Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering and the Division of Chemical Sciences and Engineering in April 2010 (admission quotas in master’s course: 129; admission quotas in doctoral course: 38).

In the Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering, chemistry and biochemistry professors of science and engineering who are affiliated with the Faculty of Science, Faculty of Engineering, Research Institute for Electronic Science, Institute for Genetic Medicine, and the Institute for Catalysis work closely together on research and education activities. Researchers affiliated with the National Institute for Materials Science, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, RIKEN, and the National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center participate as instructors in related fields. These diversely experienced instructors offer not only specialized lectures in the Molecular Chemistry and Engineering Course, Materials Chemistry and Engineering Course, and Biological Chemistry and Engineering Course established within the Division of Chemical Sciences and Engineering but also a rich diversity of classes, including lectures in English, such as those on basic specialized subjects of graduate school education in science and engineering fields. As a result, they are able to provide instruction and research guidance so that students will be able to view the field of chemistry from both the perspectives of science and engineering and contribute to society in related fields.

Educational Goals

By providing a systematic education that integrates research findings in the various fields of chemistry, such as molecular chemistry, materials chemistry, and biochemistry, the Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering strives to equip students with both basic and advanced specialized knowledge in the field of chemistry; to cultivate individuals with broad-based knowledge, a strong sense of discernment, and the ability to use their knowledge in practical applications to meet the needs created by trends toward internationalization, advanced developments in science and technology, and interdisciplinary approaches; and to nurture students who have the depth of knowledge and skills necessary for conducting basic and applied research and who will therefore be well equipped to conduct innovative research going forward.

Admission Policy

The Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering accepts talented applicants who want to learn about the specialized fields of science and engineering and earn their master’s or doctoral degrees in the field of integrated chemistry as well as applicants who want to earn their doctoral degrees while continuing their employment. The graduate school also actively accepts international students. Admission periods are in April and October.

The master’s course entrance examination consists of written and oral exams in specialized subjects. The examination is administered to measure the applicant’s level of knowledge in basic and specialized subjects in his/her field of specialization, but considerations are made to ensure that a wide variety of applicants is accepted.

The doctoral course entrance examination consists of an oral assessment to evaluate the applicant’s specialized knowledge and research skills.

Also, in order to demonstrate the required knowledge and skills of English language, applicants are required to provide the score report of English proficiency exam.
In both the master’s and doctoral courses, applicants with particularly remarkable academic transcripts or especially impressive research and development experience at their companies or institutions may be exempt from taking the written exam.
