University’s Chemistry program expands ties with Japanese institutions

In today’s increasingly globalized society, it has never been more important for universities to strengthen their competitiveness through cross-cultural international partnerships.

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology’s (UOIT) global associations drive new research opportunities and provide students with avenues to study, work and travel around the world.

The Faculty of Science recently welcomed 11 Chemistry faculty members and students from the Kyushu Institute of Technology (KIT) in Kitakyushu Japan as it hosted the UOIT-KIT Symposium in Chemistry for the second time. The University of Ontario Institute of Technology delegation included 15 Chemistry faculty members and students.

Over three days, participants presented new findings and discussed topics related to chemical biology, organic chemistry, materials chemistry, and inorganic chemistry.
