To acquire specialized knowledge and advanced technology related to life science, food science, and environmental science from a comprehensive viewpoint of biological production. Therefore, We provide under the sharing and collaboration of the fields to which the course belongs, by comprehensively combining lectures, exercises, and experiments, a wide range of education from basics to applications related to life phenomena, bio-produced substances, environmental conservation and restoration, food, health, etc.
This research area is geared to nurture students understanding of the structure-function relationships of biomolecules involved in various biochemical reactions. Students can opt to engage in research in a wide range of molecular biosciences, including organic chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology, gene technology, bio-energy, genetic engineering and many others. We conduct research and studies that seek to clarify the various life phenomena engaged-in by living creatures, chemically breaking down the structures and functions of the diverse substances they produce and analyzing the interaction between the creatures and their environment from a physical standpoint. We use this knowledge to enhance our own primary and secondary production processes and ultimately aim to contribute to the welfare and prosperity of humankind.
Food Science and Technology
This research area carries the banner for bioscience based on life science and its technologies. Therefore, the kind of study we shall engage in is not just a parallel of biology, chemistry, and engineering, but rather a truly interdisciplinary domain that unifies these three subjects. Our research and education involve: (1) the advanced utilization of the functions of food materials and their by-products, the conversion of unused resources into food, and the development of new bioresources; (2) confirming the safety, quality and nutritional status of secondary and tertiary products of food; (3) clarifying the physical, chemical, and biochemical changes that occur in the production processes and their controls; and (4) the principles of food processing, related machinery, and the biological treatment of organic waste products.
