Graduate School of Bioscience and Biotechnology

Challenging the most advanced bioscience research with the concept of "Life, Food and Environment"

About the Graduate School of Bioscience and Biotechnology

The twenty first century is often called "The Age of Biotechnology."  The field of bioscience and biotechnology has been advancing rapidly, unveiling the unlimited capability of creatures and expanding the possibility of human life.  Offshoots of this field vary from bio-industry to medical care, to food, to environment, and many more.  Today’s industries now recognize the importance of these endeavors and they actively seek qualified professionals with special knowledge and understanding of bioscience as well as natural science technology.

The Graduate School of Bioscience and Biotechnology was opened in April 2005 in response to the growing demand from society.  This program offers students the chance to expand upon their undergraduate studies and to acquire useful techniques for research and development by studying advanced modern bioscience, which has three major areas - basic life science, environmental bioscience, and food and nutrition science.  The curriculum is unique and unprecedented among the universities in the nation, which strictly ensures small-group instruction with close individual tutoring and emphasizes training research methodology.  In addition, the program tailors its curriculum design to individually address each student’s prospective course of study.  Students greatly benefit from the many intensive lectures called omnibus classes that are offered by expert faculty members.

The pride of the program centers on its faculty, who play an active role in the cutting edge of bioscience and biotechnology in today’s world. In addition, students are provided an ideal learning environment accompanied by the most advanced facilities and technology. Some of the technologically advanced equipment includes the program’s mass spectroscope, scanning electron microscope, and x-ray diffraction equipment. In such favorable environment the program carries out highly advanced special education to further promote modern bioresearch.
