Description

Advertisement

The masters programme in Polymer Materials Science and Engineering is a multi-disciplinary programme, which combines taught and research elements and examines in-depth the wide range of issues relating to structural and functional polymers. The programme prepares you for a career in industry or for an academic or research career via PhD.

The Polymer Materials Science and Engineering programme, offered in partnership with the School of Materials, is multi-disciplinary, spanning polymer physics, polymer chemistry, polymer materials science and polymer engineering. It provides you with a rich understanding of both traditional commodity plastics and speciality polymers with increasing applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields, and in electronics and nanotechnology. It develops students with a mainstream general chemical background into professionals with a highly marketable mix of skills and knowledge.

Contents

The programme

The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a five-month dissertation project (MSc) or six-week short project (Diploma). The taught course units are delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops, and practical laboratory work. The course units cover a wide range of topical subject areas:

* Polymer Chemistry: Synthesis and Molecular Characterisation
* Polymer Processing: Structure and Properties
* Advanced Polymer Science,
* Design and Manufacturing.

You will be assessed by a combination of examinations, course work, and research dissertation; furthermore, you will complete an industrial case study which supports development of your transferable skills.
