The Department of Electronic Materials Engineering conducts research on electronic materials and application device in relation to the field of electricity and electronics, including semi conductors. It is devoted to the development of professionals equipped with creative thinking capabilities and basic knowledge on electronic materials and application device, by studying the intimate combination of each component, related to the development and design of new material and electron device. Main areas of research include the field of semiconductor device, optical components, gene stock device, thin-film wiring material, self memory, spin electronics, digital image processing and design, using silicon semiconductors, compound semiconductors, amorphous semiconductors and new material.
The Department of Electronic Materials Engineering was newly established in 1974, and first recruited students in 1975. The Masters and Doctors Program was each set up in the years 1981 and 1983. Also in 1984, the Department of Electronic Materials Engineering was founded within the Graduate School of Industrial Information. 80 undergraduates and 30 graduate students enter and graduate from our department every year.
This department is equipped with experimental equipment and facilities for the undergraduate and graduate students to conduct experiments on electrons and electronic material. This department is still the highest in ranking among the other electronic materials engineering departments in the country. In 1984, the IC Production Lab was established to produce electronic material and equipment. This lab became a foundation for education and research. Every year since 1983, our undergraduate's research theses have been awarded prizes at international symposiums.

This department aims to produce leader level elite professionals knowledgeable in all the basic fields of future-oriented electronics and electricity, including semiconductors, electronic materials and application devices, under the guidance of nine professors. In order to provide more practical education that can contribute to the actual applications in the field of electronics, electricity and electronic materials, and enhance the ability to understand up-to-date technological information and future technology and research trends, the department started to operate the engineering certification policy since 2002. The certification program aims to enhance the understanding of basic engineering knowledge and develop engineers who can adapt easily to new academics and environments.
Our graduates are playing leading roles within various careers including distinguished corporations, research institutions and related industries. Since our department curriculum forms the foundation for the development of electronic engineering, it is essential to first develop electronic materials before applying to other fields of electronic engineering. Especially in a period of high density, intimate accuracy and high speed, the development of new materials is the most important priority. Therefore, it can be said that this department shows promising prospects for the future.

In order to satisfy the social demands for leading high class engineers knowledgeable in overall sectors of new material and semiconductors, which form the basis of the future-oriented field of electronics and electricity, the Department of Electronic Materials Engineering aims to break away from the traditional education of cramming information, and pursues a more practical acquisition of knowledge, which can actually contribute to the fields of electronics, electricity and semiconductor new materials, and targets to enhance the ability to understand the recent trends of high future technology and research. The final aim is to produce professional engineers highly equipped with extensive specialized knowledge and practical skills regarding electronic materials.
