Chemical Science Course

Outline of Materials Emergence Program

The Material Emergence program @ Graduate School of Engineering (MSP@GSE) offers postgraduate students both Masters and Ph. D. degrees covering all aspects of “Chemistry”.
The field of “Chemistry” encompasses the broad and indispensable basis of today's materials society, and, as such, the keys for the future. The present program is designed to provide a seamless postgraduate program that integrates both the Masters and Ph.D. degrees. In the initial years, you will acquire and establish a fundamental basis for applied chemistry through 18 intensive courses given by more than 40 professors in the fields of Physical Chemistry, Synthetic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, and Biological Chemistry. In the second year and subsequent years, the program is focused on the student's ability to do creative scientific research, leading to your Ph. D. research project after the Qualifying Examination (or Master Degree Defense) at the end of the second year.
In keeping with the goal of fostering an atmosphere of scholarly, independent study, formal course requirements are minimal and vary among the various disciplines; advisors tailor course requirements to best prepare each student for their chosen research field. For example, a student who chooses to specialize in physical chemistry would normally be expected to take two - four courses during the first research student period chosen from such topics such Statistical Mechanics, Polymer Physics, Interactions of Radiation with Matter, Electrochemistry, and many more; whereas an organic chemistry student would choose from the fields of Synthetic Chemistry, Physical Organic Chemistry, Homogeneous Catalysis (transition-metal catalysts as well as organic catalysts), Heterogeneous Catalysis, and related areas. Students are expected to learn the basic principles of synthetic transformations, organic reaction mechanisms, and physical organic chemistry including molecular orbital theory through such courses.
