About

The Polymer Science programme from Humboldt University Berlin is jointly designed by polymer scientists of the three Berlin universities, Free University Berlin (FU), Humboldt University Berlin (HU), Technical University Berlin (TU) and the nearby University of Potsdam (UP) with the goal in mind to be competitive with renowned polymer centers abroad.

Overview

The Polymer Science programme from Humboldt University Berlin benefits from the close proximity of several other Berlin and Potsdam scientific centers such as the institutes of the Max Planck, Fraunhofer, and Helmholtz Societies, as well as the BESSY II synchrotron.

Key facts:

Polymer science is an interdisciplinary area comprised of chemical, physical, engineering, processing and theoretical aspects. It also has enormous impact on contemporary materials science. Its goal is to provide the basis for the creation and characterization of polymeric materials and an understanding for structure/property relationships. Polymer science is of increasing importance for everyone's daily life. 

Many modern functional materials, gears, and devices have polymers as integral parts. Not surprisingly, roughly 30% of all scientists in the chemical industry work in the field of polymers. Despite its importance today and potential for future economic growth, there is no adequate university-level study program for polymer science in Germany.
