Outline(The Division of Advanced Sciences)

28.03.2016 Update


The Advanced Sciences division emphasizes the nature of academic fields in the sciences as basic sciences and encourages specialized knowledge in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and computer science. The division also aims to foster broad, flexible attitudes of learning that will be effective in related fields of study as well as new, emerging fields. Students with the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and computer science will engage in further specialized education with the goal of becoming leading experts in their respective fields. The benefits of a small university would be drawn upon to encourage cooperation between the related fields of computer science and mathematics, mathematics and physics, physics and chemistry, and with affiliated centers such as the Center for Soft Matter Physics and the Glycoscience Institute (or advanced and integrated research division), in order to nurture a wide vision unconfined to the framework of the individual fields and the ability to excel in new, yet unknown fields. Through such education and research activities, the Advanced Sciences division aims to create and develop new fields in the basic sciences (such as mathematical physics, or biochemistry, or particle physics that relates to both physics and computer science, or soft matter science that combines physics and chemistry). The master's program fosters professional experts as well as researchers who will go on to receive their doctorates. The Advanced Sciences graduate division consists of four departments: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Computer Science.

Department of Mathematics

We conduct research and education on advanced mathematics together with its newly developed applications to various fields.

Department of Physics

Our education and research programs integrate a wide variety of physical approaches such as quantum theory, statistical mechanics and the theory of relativity, in order to understand various aspects of material properties and in order to predict new physical phenomena, on broad scales from elementary particles to universe, including solids, liquids, and soft matter, which are aggregates of atoms and molecules.

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department involves the study of a variety of organic and inorganic molecules that make up substances, biomolecules, and supermolecules, for a fundamental and multifaceted academic examination of structure and properties, synthesis and reaction, functionality and phenomena.

Department of Computer Science

The Computer Science Department conducts a wide range of special courses and research involving computer science and the mathematical sciences. Students will become familiar with information theory and system technologies and gain an understanding of the mathematical sciences and its applications.
