    Course description
    The Polymer Materials Science and Engineering programme, offered in partnership with the School of Chemistry, is multi-disciplinary and provides you with a rich understanding of both traditional commodity plastics and speciality polymers with increasing applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields, and in electronics and nanotechnology.  The programme prepares you for a career in industry or for an academic or research career via PhD.

    The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a five-month dissertation project (MSc) or six-week short project (Diploma).  The taught course units are delivered through a combination of lectures and practical laboratory work.  The course units cover a wide range of topical subject areas:

    Polymer Chemistry and Molecular Characterisation

    Polymer Processing, Structure and Properties

    Advanced Polymer Science and Design

    You will be assessed by a combination of examinations and course work, and you will complete an industrial case study which supports development of your transferable skills.

    Module details
    Typical course units include: Concepts of Polymer Materials Science and Engineering; Industrial Polymer Processing; Control and Design of Polymerisations; Polymer Spectroscopy and Thermal Characterisation; Polymer Molecular Characterisation and Behaviour; Mechanical and Engineering Properties of Polymers; Engineering, Manufacture and Design with Polymers; Molecular Approach to Polymer Properties; Functional polymers; Polymer Processing and Manufacture; New Directions in Polymerisation.

    Career opportunities
    The majority of graduates of this programme go on to fill key posts as materials scientists, engineers, managers and consultants in academia, industry and research and development. Some advance to PhD programmes within the School.
