Polymer Engineering

Faculty: Faculty of Technology Programme: Polymer Engineering Form: Full time Type: Master's Language: English

Not only do you realize that almost everything around us consists of polymers, but you can also produce and use them effectively. But here we also consider what to do with a polymer product when it is no longer in use. To this end, we focus on recycling, the impact of polymers on the environment, so-called “green” polymers, as well as new trends and innovations in this area. In addition, in this degree programme you will learn about testing and certification along with designing complex construction solutions that are not only impressive but beneficial for all. Terms like extruder, composite and viscosity will become part of your everyday vernacular.
