MSc(Eng) Polymers and Polymer Composite Science and Engineering?
Polymers and polymer composites are increasingly important in our everyday life and can be found everywhere around us. They range from commonplace such as polypropylene (left) or fibreglass to high performance such as PEEK or carbon fibre.
Recent advances include biodegradable plastics, 3D printing, plastic electronics, myriad aerospace applications and many more. Polymer nanocomposites (such as those based on graphene) are being developed for use in areas such as drug delivery and tissue engineering.
