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 three research institutes (Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials, WPI-Advanced Institute for Materials Research 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 Kenji Inaba (IMRAM)

Five years have passed since we embarked this brand new educational program, the AMC course, aiming at training international students oriented to chemistry and materials sciences, and began accepting the first students. We are proud of the steady development of our course materials including basic classroom lectures, problem-solving classes and laboratory classes. We have also made significant efforts to support students to start their new lives in foreign country with the help of our staffs and teaching assistants. In addition, this five years' experience taught the teachers of the AMC course, including me, the importance of education in a compact small-sized classes and the joy of interacting with young students with various cultural backgrounds. This is the place where an idealistic education of chemistry has been practiced. We would like to encourage new students, especially those interested in chemistry, to enter the AMC course.
