Department of Life Sciences
The life sciences are an integral part of scientific studies. It basically consists of scientific study of life and organisms encompassing microorganisms, plants, and animals including human beings.
Advances in bioscience are not only able to uncover the mysteries of life, but are also essential to the creation of new industries, as they provide technologies that contribute to the formation of a rich human society and the conservation of the global environment. The purpose of the life science department is to educate students to have broad knowledge and skills in advanced science, to respond to the various problems of global society, and to become successful in various fields.
In particular, university emphasises to educate future researchers and engineers to explore life science, future workers who make use of advanced knowledge, skills, and attitudes of life science beyond the confines of the country, and future teachers who will be involved in the education of students who will lead the next generation.
Life on Campus
The faculty of life science will train you for a bright future to answer, follow and perform innumerable discoveries in this field during the course of your career.
