International Undergraduate Program in Chemistry ADVANCED MOLECULAR CHEMISTRY COURSE


Welcom Messeage

Welcome to the website of the Advanced Molecular Chemistry (AMC) course at Tohoku University. The AMC course is the fruit of collaboration between the Department of Chemistry and two research institutes (Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials and Institute for Materials Research). As one of the leading Chemistry Departments in Japan, we offer high quality education in English where students work in close contact with our faculty members. By collaborating with internationally recognized research institutes, we are able to offer our students a diverse range of well-funded research programs and opportunities to use world-class research equipment. The graduates of this course will be expected to work as professional chemists in Japan as well as in other countries. I invite you to explore the webpages of our faculty members to learn more about our research offerings and teaching program. We hope that the AMC will be your choice to obtain professional knowledge and skills required for your future success in knowledge-based societies.

Professor Shin Mizukami (IMRAM)

Eight years have passed since we accepted the first students in this brand new educational program, the AMC course, established to train international students in chemistry and materials sciences. We are proud of the steady development of our course materials, including basic classroom lectures, problem-solving classes, and laboratory classes. We have also worked hard to support the students starting their new lives in Japan with the help of our staff members and teaching assistants. In addition, from our experience over the last eight years, we have learned the importance of education in small-sized classes and the joy of interacting with promising students from various cultural backgrounds. Tohoku University is the place where an idealistic education of chemistry is practiced because of the credible tradition, top-level researchers and students, and the state-of-the-art facilities in the field of chemistry. We are looking forward to meeting new students, especially those who are ambitious towards studying chemistry and related sciences, in the AMC course.
