Features of College of Science



The College of Science has adopted a one department - six courses system to support a new trend in science education. The new education system, which has completely removed the conventional framework of multiple departments, is designed to give students high-level expertise in science and problem-solving. It aims to develop science specialists who can play roles in various spheres of society.


Broad and deep science education through the course system

The system offers, in addition to five courses in the field of science, a sixth course in Integrated Sciences, which is multidisciplinary and covers a wide range of areas.

High-quality education through a consistent 4-year curriculum

Students can plan clear-cut educational goals through a consistent curriculum, from enrollment to graduation.

Detailed and practical instructions

All faculty members of the College of Science cooperate as a single department to offer education without the barriers created by having multiple departments.
