Course summary

Polymer Science and Nanotechnology are extremely rapid growing fields in advanced materials and engineering. New techniques to produce nanometer sized particles and new functional polymers are being discovered every day. There is a huge need from companies for well-trained engineers or scientists with a good knowledge on polymer science and nanotechnology. If you have a materials or engineering background and want to develop your knowledge of the polymer materials sector, this programme is for you. Taking into account the needs of the industry and the direction of the leading scientific achievements, we have designed an MSc course on Polymer Science and Nanotechnology. This course capitalises on research strengths that already exist within the School of Engineering and Materials Science, particularly within the area of polymers and composites. The course focuses on polymers synthesis and polymer composites and conclude with an independent research project related to these areas.
