B.Sc (Hons) Polymer Science
About Program: Polymer scientists are chemists that modify polymers to create useful materials that have unique properties. Scientists generally need a graduate level degree and some work experience to operate in this high-tech industry. Undergraduate work in chemistry followed by graduate work in polymer science, organic or materials chemistry is good preparation. Specializing in polymer science gives polymer scientists educational tools to construct, design and understand polymers. Graduate degrees in these fields focus on research, teaching, examinations, seminars and work specialization.
- Duration - 3 years
XII with Science with minimum 50% marks.
Many scientists work on designing and creating new polymer materials. Moreover polymer graduates can work in various MNCs which are there in polymer industries. Polymer engineers work primarily in the field of plastics development. They may help to develop new plastics or assist in the testing and evaluation of products. Polymer engineers may be expected to maintain a laboratory or oversee other employees in working on a product or process.
