Program Description:

Aims of the course The course offers advanced study in polymers (plastics and rubbers) for science and engineering graduates in either full-time or part-time modes. It aims to prepare you for a career in the polymer and related industries or, if already employed in the industry, to improve your effectiveness and career prospects. The programme provides hands-on learning opportunities in the Polymer Centre's laboratories and workshops. This enables full integration of the theory and practice of polymer engineering. The course aims to develop experience and understanding of the practical aspects of polymer engineering essential for those with technological careers. This will also be of great value for those in management, sales and marketing, so that they can be aware of potential opportunities, choose the appropriate materials and communicate processes effectively with those at the production end of manufacturing. Course structure The course consists of four compulsory modules, two optional modules and a project. Compulsory modules: Fundamentals of Polymer Science Principles of Polymer Engineering Manufacturing and Finishing Processes Research Methods Optional modules from: Formulation and Design of Polymer Materials Professional and Technical Issues Advanced Polymer Processing and Simulation Industrial Work Experience A project can be on any topic within the range of the course, subject to approval. The Research Methods module will prepare you for the project.
