Aiming to achieve recycling-oriented bioindustry

Department of Bioindustry

A Comprehensive Exploration of the Production, Processing and Distribution of Biological Resources.

With the aim of fostering human resources with highly specialized knowledge in the field of bioindustry, within this doctoral program comprehensive education and academic research will be performed that integrates aspects studied in four majors of the master’s programs being a "Bioindustry" and a "Aqua Bioscience and Industry" related to biological resources production and management; a "Food Science and Technology" related to development, utilization and functions of food resources; and a "Business Science" related to distribution of food and biological resources.

Course Navigator

Undergraduate

Teacher-training Course

This is a course for obtaining a regular teaching certificate for junior high schools and high schools based on Japan’s Education Personnel Certification Act.

Teacher-training Course

Students who take this course are awarded a teaching certificate at the time of graduation by earning specified credits while taking specialized education in their department. This course creates a heavier workload compared to other students, as it entails taking more classes, with many lectures in the evening and many practice sessions off campus, but this could lead to a student life that much richer.

Many students who have completed this course are playing active roles as teachers in junior high schools and high schools as well as other educational institutions around the country. In the academic year 2016, 130 people obtained 291 teaching certificates (including specialized certificates for those who completed a graduate program). While passing the teacher employment examination is a difficult hurdle, every year about 150 NODAI alumnae (including former graduates) become teachers.

Scientific Information Course

The objective of this course is to train natural sciences librarians and curators by having students learn the foundation of being a technical expert

Scientific Information Course

The objective of this course is to train natural sciences librarians and curators by having students learn the foundation of being a technical expert (including information usage education using computers), which includes surveying, accumulating, organizing, storing, searching, and providing (including displaying) information related to science and technology in public institutions such as museums, science museums, children’s facilities, and public libraries, as well as corporate information departments and R&D departments.
