Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering

The mission of the Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering is to develop chemical engineers and researchers capable of flexibly meeting the needs of society. To achieve this mission, we offer students common education programs on fundamental chemistry, and faculty members of science and engineering departments work together to provide expansive education programs that meet student’s career goals (engineers and researchers working in the corporate environment, researchers working in public institutions, and educators in higher education).

In order to gain entry into a Master’s or Doctoral Program, applicants must:
  • Hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent and have completed at least 16 years of education.


Find a Supervisor

Graduate and research students conduct research under the guidance of a supervisor. To enter Hokkaido University as a research or graduate student, you need to find a faculty member who is willing to give you instruction on your research. Find a prospective supervisor from our website:
