What is Polymer Engineering

The discipline of polymer engineering involves studying relationships that exist between the structure and properties of polymeric materials. An understanding of such structure-properties correlations facilitates correct fabrication, design and use of components made from polymers. The Polymer Engineering course offered is aimed at producing competent and skillful graduates who wish to seek careers as engineers, scientists and managers in the polymer industries.

Introduction to BS Polymer Engineering

BS Polymer Engineering (4 Years / 8 Semesters)

This is a four years full-time study degree program comprising lectures and practical demonstrations designed to fulfill advance plastics industry requirement. The degree program is for those wishing to work as Polymer Engineer in the plastics industry. This program is a self contained course and provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of the engineering principles of various areas of importance to flourish and expand local plastics industry particularly with reference to productivity, design, economy and quality aspects.

At present our plastics industry is facing shortage of qualified and trained manpower at the level of engineers, technologists, technicians etc., to operate plastics processing machines which are functionally advanced day by day due to rapid technological developments in the field of mechanical, automation, electronics etc.

BS Polymer Engineering Graduation Requirements

The Polymer Engineering program at PTC is a bachelor degree. Graduation essentially requires a minimum 2.00 CGPA in overall eight Semesters (Four Academic years). Polymer Engineering students must pass all the courses as mentioned in the prospectus of the BS  program.
