G30 Chem-Eng Program

Nagoya University (NU) is among the few universities selected by the Japanese government to offer undergraduate programs for international students and educate them in English. Furthermore, Nagoya University has been selected as one of the Designated Japanese National Universities where the G30 program has been recognized as highly successful in educating and training students with an international background.
The 3rd year G30-Chem-Eng students who completed the prerequisite for joining research laboratories by the end of their Fall semester in their 3rd year are referred to as the students who can join their desired laboratories for their bachelor research.
G30 Chemistry Program at the Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology is managed by the cooperation of the following three departments: Molecular & Macromolecular Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, and Biomolecular Engineering.
