Polymers for Advanced Technologies
This course is designed with industry in mind. We have also partnered with Engineering Materials and Physics to encompass the breadth of modern polymer science and technology. You'll become the kind of high-calibre polymer science graduate needed to develop new products and processes in a variety of industries. Through a combination of theory and practice, we'll teach you about polymer synthesis, physics, characterisation and the latest developments in polymer research. When you design and conduct your own extended research project, you can look in more detail at the areas you're most interested in and learn how to communicate your science to the chemical community.
Core modules: Fundamental Polymer Chemistry; The Physics of Polymers; Biopolymers and Biomaterials; Polymer Characterisation and Analysis; Research and Presentation Skills and Polymer Laboratory Skills; Extended Research Project. Examples of optional modules: Smart Polymers and Polymeric Materials; Polymers with Controlled Structures; Design and Manufacture of Composites; Polymer Fibre Composite Materials; Macromolecules at Interfaces and Structured Organic Films; Electronics and Photonics.
Assessment is based on exams; essays; assessed workshops and a 15,000-word dissertation.
