About

The Polymer Technology programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides students with the comprehensive tools needed to develop future materials for advanced health care, energy production, green packaging, surface coatings and many other applications. 

Overview

Students study at two universities, graduate with a double degree and acquire comprehensive skills in polymer technology. The programme takes full advantage of the strengths and research specialisations of each university.

The Polymer Technology programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides a solid base in the chemistry and physics of organic materials, as well as their connection to real-life applications. 

A broad range of courses and the choice of one of five specialisation tracks allow students to customise their degree and focus on individual areas of particular interest.

Students will learn about design, synthesis, characterisation, production and development of polymeric materials throughout the duration of the programme. 

The materials covered in the programme includes plastics, rubber, composites, paper, wood and other biological materials. 

Students will be able to tackle challenges pertaining to the choice of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), and the choice of production processes, material combinations and manufacturing methods. 

Great emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and the development of sustainable materials.

Career

Career opportunities for students from this programme are broad and international. 

Advanced skills in both fibre and polymer technology combined with a clear environmental focus provides an excellent basis for various careers in industry, government agencies and academia and graduates from the master programme are very attractive for many different industries such as the paper and forest industry, plastics, medical technology, pharmaceutical, coating and adhesive and packaging industry. 

Material expertise is also needed in many other sectors, ranging from transport to electronics.
