Polymer science is a fast moving field that has had a major impact on the way we live. It allows us to develop ever more sophisticated materials to suit the needs of society and the planet.
This programme is designed to give you a broad understanding of polymer science with a focus on the underlying properties of polymers in relation to their utilisation in industrial applications.
Taught by a team of international experts, the programme covers the latest science and technology of plastics, rubbers and composites including aspects of nanotechnology and biomaterials. Lectures are supplemented by an extensive variety of laboratory exercises, spanning chemical and physical characterisation, and compounding and processing technology experiments on pilot-scale laboratory equipment.
An honours degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent overseas qualification in a science or engineering subject. Applicants with a lower second class degree (2:2) will be considered.
Overseas qualification equivalencies can be found here.
