The Faculty of Science, Shizuoka University, formerly department of science at The Faculty of Humanities and Science changed to the new faculty comprised all subjects for basic science as department in 1965. The Faculty of Science has enhanced and developed its capabilities both for education and research.
The department of Geosciences was established in 1975 and Graduate School of Science was established (master’s course) in 1976. In 1996, Graduate School for doctor’s course of Science and Engineering was reorganized to improve education course and high level research. Throughout the years, the Faculty has produced more than 5,800 graduates, who have consistently demonstrated their talents as: researchers, engineers, and educators in various field of the society.
In April 2006, the Faculty, through its departments and graduate school, was reorganized in order to promote higher level education and research in the science field.
Since 2006 the Faculty of Sciences boasts five departments, a Radiochemistry Research Laboratory and a Graduate School of Science & Engineering, offering master and doctorate courses. Both the Research Center and the Graduate School are jointly managed by the Faculty of Engineering and Faculties of Science.
The Radiochemistry Research Laboratory is well equipped for the research in the large field of Natural Sciences.
