  1. Department of Agricultural Chemistry, National Taiwan University Ren-ShihChung Professor and Head

  2. Mission Department of Agricultural Chemistry Both microcosm and macrocosm From atom to molecule From molecule to cell From cell to ecosystem To participate the global efforts on the safety of living environments, the Department is committed to attain the highest quality of human capital and scientific knowledge for the sustainable growth of agricultural ecosystems and the green utilization of bioresources. 2

  3. Introduction • The Department of Agricultural Chemistry was founded in 1928 and the B.S. program was offered. The graduate programs for the M.S. and Ph.D degrees were established in 1947 and 1968, respectively. • From 2003, in facing the global needs on safety of living environments, the department had rebuilt the study program in four disciplines: (1) soil and environmental sciences (2) plant physiology and chemistry (3) microbiology and biotechnology (4) utilization of bioresources 3

  4. Introduction (cont.) • In the progress of the new direction, the department regrouped all the courses to meet the requirements of the sustainable development of the country and to train students for having ability to serve the society after they graduate. • The teaching quality and examination process were improved to strengthen student confidence. The department also enhances the teaching programs and research capacities via hiring new faculty members and enhancement of the cooperation and integration of courses with other departments. 4

  5. Research facility The Department of Agricultural Chemistry is housed in two major research buildings. All of the routine apparatus and instrumentation required for the most advanced research are available. Available equipments include real time Q PCR, preparative ultracentrifuges, fermentors, fluorometers, ion and gas chromatographs, high pressure liquid chromatographs, X-ray diffractometer, Infrared spectrometer, surface area, flame photometers, atomic absorption spectrophotometer, supercritical fluid extractor, amino acid and automatic image analyzers, capillary electrophoresis apparatus, ELISA photometric system, GC-MS, HPLC Quadrupole-time of flight tandem mass spectrometer, CNS-analyzer, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrophotometer (ICP-AES), etc. 5

  6. Academic Programs For the sake of offering programs for bachelor, master and Ph.D degrees, our teaching and research activities are introduced into four divisions as described below. Soiland Environmental Sciences PlantPhysiology and Chemistry Microbiologyand Biotechnology Utilizationof Bioresources 6

  7. Academic Programs Basic courses for undergraduate program requirements 7

  8. Basic courses for undergraduate program requirements For Junior and Senior, advanced 6 credits are required in the division chosen by each student, and four more credits are also required in other divisions (10 credits in subtotal). 8

  9. Basic courses for graduate program requirements Selective courses for graduate program (16 credits are required) 9
