Study programme

Polymer technology is essential for technical progress in large number of areas and it plays a key role in meeting the challenges in the areas of health, energy, and sustainability. The education is based on the research and teaching excellence of participating universities.The students will, in excess to basic skills in polymer technology, get a broader understanding of the research in this field through the studies in two different universities. The programme includes the first year in one partner university, and the second year in another partner university.

Programme Structure

Structure of studies

The Polymer Technology is a two-year programme of full-time studies with 120 ECTS credit points.The programme is structured in two parts:

  • The first year studies are divided into core courses (25-35 ECTS) and key competence (25-35 ECTS). The core courses cover the  areas of polymer chemistry and polymer physics.
  • During the second year you specialize in one of the five subjects: biomaterials science, advanced materials, polymer engineering, macromolecular materials, and industrial processes. Each of the subjects defines a study track.
