About

The Resource Recovery - Polymer Materials for the Circular Economy programme from University of Boras deals with polymer materials and how they can be part of a circular economy. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Polymer materials such as plastics and textiles are an important part of our daily lives. It is therefore important that sustainable methods for recycling and new polymer materials with reduced climate and environmental impacts are developed and made available on the market. If this is something you want to learn more about and work with in the future, then this Master's programme is for you.

It includes the recycling and reuse of polymers, biodegradation, and how polymers accumulate in the ecosystem as well as the development of renewable biopolymers and the development of polymers that work in a circular economy.

The Resource Recovery - Polymer Materials for the Circular Economy programme from University of Boras covers both the production and applications of plastics, textiles, and composite materials, as well as their properties. Emphasis is on the possibilities of creating polymers from biologically based raw materials and how these are broken down biologically. An important part of the educational programme consists of practical lab components to provide basic skills in processes, characterisation, and testing the properties of materials.

The programme

In this Master's programme, you will take part in the university's leading research in resource recovery and textile technology. During the first term, you will gain an

understanding of the current status and future trends in the field of resource recovery, both globally and nationally. Business and methodological knowledge such as life cycle analysis are also included. The second term focuses on courses in the polymer field. The programme ends with a one-year degree project in which you will immerse yourself further in the area that interests you. 

The degree project can be carried out within the industry or in collaboration with our researchers and doctoral students at the Swedish Centre for Resource Recovery and the Swedish School of Textiles at the University of Borås
