The Department of Plastics Engineering Research Program at Shenkar College is the only one of its kind in Israel.


Its objective is to train engineers with the ability to carry out research and development for the polymers and plastics industry in Israel, in order to advance the level of R&D and move onto updated and advanced fields of these industries.

To that end, the Plastics Engineering Research Program at Shenkar College is intended to:

  • Raise the knowledge level of students in advanced engineering (including mathematics, polymer chemistry and physics, as well as thermodynamics), in advanced polymer materials (biodegradable, nano-compounded, compounds, adhesives, polymer supplements, product specification), and advanced processing and design processes (rheology, computerized analysis, material and content selection).
  • Train students on how to carry out R&D jobs in the polymers and plastics field, pursuant to the global developments and the industry’s needs.
Opening the Plastics Engineering M.Sc Research Program at Shenkar resulted in certain international collaborations with similar programs around the world, like the agreement with the University of Massachusetts for a joint PhD program, which is jointly funded.

Programme Structure

There are three main fields of study in the program:

  • Advanced engineering
  • Structure, properties and applications of polymers
  • Processing and characterization of polymers
In addition to the courses studied, the graduate student will complete a final project or a research project.

Key information


  • Full-time
