Students will learn of design, synthesis, characterisation, production and development of polymeric materials throughout the duration of the degree programme. The material group includes plastics, rubber, composites, paper, wood and other biological materials; students will be able to handle questions pertaining to the choice of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), and the choice of production processes, material combinations and manufacturing methods to achieve the desired characteristics in the finished product. Great emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and development of sustainable materials.
The Joint Nordic Master in Polymer Technology programme is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology.
