Polymers and Polymer Composite Science and Engineering
We work with the University�s Polymer Centre to bring you this interdisciplinary course. The centre gives you access to a wide range of facilities and expertise. And it gives you more options: you can specialise in chemistry, physics or engineering with polymeric materials. This project gives you the chance to apply what you have learned. It also provides the basis for your dissertation. Graduates work in research and development in the chemical and polymer industry.
A good honours degree in materials, metallurgy, chemistry or a related engineering subject from an approved institution. English language requirements: overall IELTS grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.
Core modules: fundamental polymer chemistry; biopolymers and biomaterials; polymer characterisation and analysis; polymer laboratory course; the physics of polymers; polymer materials science and engineering. Optional modules: design and manufacture of composites; smart polymers and polymeric materials; macromolecules at interfaces and structured organic films; molecular electronics and photonics.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation.
