Laboratory for Future Interdisciplinary Research of Science and Technology (FIRST)
Laboratory for Future Interdisciplinary Research of Science and Technology (FIRST) of Tokyo Tech is dedicated to foster human society’s future development and prosperity by promoting technical progress in industry to meet needs of the era. FIRST creates the new industrial technologies by fusion of mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, metallurgy, environmental engineering, disaster prevention engineering, social engineering, chemical engineering, and physical electronics. FIRST focuses on not only science and engineering, but also humanities and sociology, such as industrial sociology, economics and law, to promote interdisciplinary researches. The ultimate target is to conduct advanced science and engineering researches that will lead to creation of new industrial technologies to realize the prosperous future of the world.
Laboratory for Materials and Structures (MSL)
MSL aims to create the innovative materials with conspicuous properties and functions via interdisciplinary materials science based on inorganic materials extending to metals and organic materials. The ultimate goals of our lab include: a. Development of innovative materials based on novel concepts; b. Design of innovative materials in pursuit of novel guiding principles based on underlying materials science and theories in different scientific fields; c. Contribution to the solution of social problems, including safety and environmental problems, through the application of innovative structures and materials.
Laboratory for Chemistry and Life Science (CLS)
Laboratory for Chemistry and Life Science (CLS), which consists of four major divisions- “molecular synthesis”, “molecular materials design”, “molecular functions” and “molecular bioscience”, carries out a wide range of researches on molecular science and engineering, covering not only fundamental and applied chemistry but also life science. By bringing domestic and international research activities together, CLS aims at creating new principles of molecular-based chemistry and bioscience and thereby making breakthroughs for the next generation science and technology. The final goal of CLS is to contribute to the realization of sustainable development of human society through front-line chemical researches.
Laboratory for Zero-Carbon Energy (ZC)
The laboratory’s objective will be to help realize a carbon-neutral society through innovative research and the development of non-fossil (zero-carbon) energy sources, as well as systems for their use. We will help build the foundation of a society capable of sustainable economic growth in harmony with the environment.
