Molecular Engineering

Chemistry, a discipline that deals with converting substances, is steadily growing to include the design of molecules and materials with novel functions. The academic study of a substance helps to determine its properties in relation to electronic structure, molecular arrangement, and interactions. Molecular engineering is a new academic field founded on the fundamental study of microscopic phenomena such as atoms, molecules, and polymers. The ultimate goal is to theoretically and experimentally elucidate the interactions among atoms, molecules, and polymers and then directly apply these results to engineering at the molecular level. The Department of Molecular Engineering conducts fundamental research, from a theoretical molecular perspective, to help develop new electronic materials and other materials for energy and information applications. We cultivate researchers and engineers who can apply innovative ideas to develop these fundamentals into real-world applications.
