Department of Environmental and Materials Engineering

We aim at environment-friendly material science.
We develop environment-friendly new materials with our cutting-edge knowledge, skills and passion.
Environmental and Materials Engineering will protect and develop our precious Earth.

Humans have always been laying a path to technologysince their birth, using materials.
New technologies were formed as new materials were made.

Now, new materials that embodies state-of-the-art technologies are sought to develop and protect global environment as well as to achieve dream cyclical society.

Let's build the future together at Department of Environment and Materials Engineering with your enthusiasm and creativity!

Educational Objective

Considering environment and being gentle with humans, manufacturing can be said to evolve and develop modern society.
Materials engineering is the prerequiste manufacturing base and it changes substance structure into shapes which have views on both micro-world, such as atoms and molecules, and macro-world.
Making attempts to fuse physics and chemistry is extremely important.

Needless to say, every field in the 21st Century is required to achieve environment-friendly cyclical society.
Various approaches to switch from a material-rich and energy-intensive society to a safe and spiritually rich society have started.

Department of Environmental and Materials Engineering develops environment-friendly materials and meets social trend instead of merely dealing with materials.
Also Tokai area, Central Japan, has a great number of manufacturing industries.
We welcome students who will take an active part to achieve world-class environment-friendly society together with local industries and industry-university-government cooperation.

Curriculum

Ceramics Program

Ceramics mean artificially-made "Nonmetallic, inorganic and solid materials".
For instance, artificial dental roots and artificial bones in medical field, cutting tools in machining field, fuel batteries as energy, glassware and chinaware in commodities, IC boards, condensers and fiber optics in telecommunication and information field.
Ceramics are one of the closest materials to us.
Materials design, which exceeds levels of nano and macro, enables to develop new materials.

On the axis of ceramics science, students will learn materials structure and function in consideration of environment.
Also students will learn comprehensively how to create those materials.
Ceramics program aims at cultivating human resources capable of constructing environment-friendly ceramics materials sciece.

Materials Function Program

Students will learn to build various functions into materials, which have the key to support manufacturing, as well as to educe skillfully those materials.
Understanding materials' structure, property, function and process comprehensively, students will learn the means of environment-friendly development.
For example, students will search which materials are effective on designing systems of automobile, aerospace transport, electronic device (ex. semiconductor, sensor), energy conversion (ex. fuel cell).
Using advanced materials as nanotechnology, Materials Function Program aims at training engineers capable of considering global environmental protection, such as recycling efficiency of materials, to pursue "New Function".

e-Materials

Words that start with "e" are the keywords of material science paradigm in the 21st century.

five"e"s
