Leather Technology

Students carry out supervised research projects and submit theses for examination. Research subjects currently being supported include: application of polymers to leather processing; collagen science and technology; effluent treatment and waste disposal in the leather industry; long term aging of leather; mechanical properties of leather in relation to its structure; tanning chemistry and the use of enzymes in leather manufacture. While developing and setting up research projects students initially receive generic as well as discipline based and project specific training; this is to equip and enable them to conduct their research work effectively and independently with minimum supervision.
