Polymer science and technology is a fast moving field that has had a major impact on the way we live. It allows us to develop ever more sophisticated materials to suit the needs of society and the planet. This programme is designed to give you a broad understanding of polymer science and technology with a focus on the underlying properties of polymers in relation to their utilisation in industrial applications. The programme covers the latest science and technology of plastics, rubbers and composites including aspects of nanotechnology and biomaterials. Core study areas include polymer synthesis, polymer processing, polymer additive, blend and rheology, polymer physics and properties, polymer characterization and a project dissertation. The optional study areas include surface and foam technology and rubber and latex technology. In order to meet the manpower and R&D demand of the industry, the Department of Bioprocess and Polymer Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia offers Master of Science in Polymer Technology (mixed mode).
