The University of Kitakyushu Faculty of Environmental Engineering

Dept. of Chemical and Environmental Engineering

With Chemistry as the base,we strive for clean energy, environmental preservation and resource recycling utilization.


Features of educational curriculum and methods

Development of scientific technology and systems that harmonize with the environment.

In order to solve the global scale environmental problems that we are facing, the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering aims for the development of scientific techniques and energy that can exist in harmony with nature, as well as the development of resources recycling systems. The Department fosters 21st century personnel that can be active globally contributing to the development of new materials that are environmentally friendly, the effective utilization of finite resources, and development of techniques, including for materials recycling and the assesment and restoration of environmental pollution from hazardous waste.

Listen to the Earth's voice and become experts at problem resolution and the development of technology that harmonizes with the environment.

Chemical Processes

  • Undertake the development of clean energy and renewable energy such as natural gas, bio-mass and solar batteries, as well as developing chemical processes for environmentally friendly material synthesis.

Advanced Materials

  • Protect our lifestyle space and the natural environment by making full use of the latest nanotechnology that prospers today and developing environment harmonizing materials the transform harmful substances into harmless ones and ultrahigh sensitivity detection methods for environmental pollutants.

Environmental Processes

  • Aim to realize a recycling society (sustainable society) in which people feel safe and relaxed, by making full use of cutting-edge analytical assessment, waste treatment, and environmental restoration techniques, against the challenges from now of real environmental problems such as resources recycling, and the foundations of life, of the water environment and water treatment, and the soil environment.

Pathways students can take after graduation
