home College Information > College of Natural Sciences
The educational goal of the College of Natural Sciences is to explore and polish the profound theories of pure science and to discover inherent objective law through various phenomena found in the natural world. The goal of the College is not only to help students equip themselves with the latest theories and knowledge in their respective fields of interest, but also to produce well-trained specialists who possess the scientifically inquisitive minds and practical skills necessary to understand highly advanced technological science. By welcoming highly qualified scholars and installing the latest experimental and laboratory facilities, this College plans to increase its educational standing and revitalize applied science research.
With the rapid development of the information society and the increasing emphasis on the importance of mathematical research related to that development, study units in this field of study are organized into three respective fields. The first field includes those subjects that focus on understanding the basic principles of mathematics such as analytics, algebra, topological mathematics, and the like. The second field includes those subjects that can be applied in engineering and social science fields such as information mathematics, numerics and cryptology, fuzzy theory, insurance mathematics, and the like. The final field includes those subjects that can be applied in information industries such as computer science, programing, graph theory, and the like. To sum up, the objective of this field of study is to cultivate pure and applied mathematicians as well as information industry experts.
In today's information-based society the demands for information analysis using statistical technology is rapidly increasing in nearly all academic fields including natural and social science. In accordance with these needs, and to cultivate the statistical experts required today, this field of study invites outstanding major-specialized faculty members from various fields of study, especially those who collaborate with both industry and academics applications. In addition, this field of study operates an efficient curriculum that meets the needs of both its students and society with an on-campus computer education system and outstanding statistic-exclusive computer laboratories.
The study of physics is essential to the understanding and development of cutting edge scientific techniques. In particular, to understand the nature of nanotechnologies, knowledge of physical concepts are essential. As such, the Department focuses on developing research abilities in specialized fields. As physics is at the foundation of all scientific techniques, graduates often achieve remarkable results in various fields including chemistry, biology, electronic engineering, medical science, and the like.
As chemistry is at the center of all natural sciences, it is not only the foundation of other academic fields such as engineering, medical science, agriculture, and the like, but also has attributes of applied science which can be readily applied to real-world industrial settings. As the objective of this field of study is to cultivate experts who will engage in chemistry related industries, it operates an appropriate curriculum to achieve this objective. In addition, this field of study focuses on experimental education directly related to industry and makes a consistent effort to raise educational standards and to cope with changing academic conditions and the educational environment.
This field of study focuses on cultivating scientific experts with extensive professional knowledge to cope with today's cutting-edge biological science technologies. To do this, the Department has created a curriculum that fosters rational understanding of biological phenomena and deep insight into understand the ecosystem. In addition, the Department also operates a variety of experiments and practices that allow students to succeed in research, education, and/or industry upon graduation.
Genetic Engineering, the culmination of the 21st century's cutting edge sciences, is based on various fields of basic biological science and is a unique and original science which combines basis and application. This field of study, which was founded on the basis of gene recombination techniques, has made great strides owing to the completion of the Human Genome Project and recently faces a new developmental leap with the success of research in animal and stem cell cloning. Research in this field of study requires the ability to apply professional knowledge based on solid academic foundations as well as a creative and abundant imagination.
