Curriculum Policies

 In order to achieve the educational goals of the department, we provide an education that allows students to acquire knowledge in the fields related to food chemistry, biofunction, food safety, bio-environmental science, fermentation technology and microbial science. We also provide education to foster their practical abilities through experiments, practical training and practice. The following is an overview.

  • (1) We provide basic specialized subjects in the first and second years, including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, food chemistry, and applied microbiology. The subjects are specialized knowledge fields and provide exposure to relevant general skills required for success in the department.
  • (2) Students are assigned to a specialized educational program from third year. We provide special subjects and subjects for experiments, practical training, and practice of each educational course based on curriculum policies in order to develop higher expertise and skills.
  • (3) In the fourth year, students work on special research themes with an academic advisor. We provide subjects that guide them in their thesis writing and in preparing for the presentation on their study results.
