Polymer Certificate

A polymer is a chemical compound with molecules bonded together in long, repeating chains. Because of their structure, polymers have unique properties that can be tailored for different uses. Polymers include a range of materials with a variety of properties, and are found in common household goods, clothing and toys, construction materials and insulation, and many other products.

The post baccalaureate certificate program in polymers is targeted toward students who have a bachelor’s degree in an engineering or science field and are seeking further education in polymers. The program provides opportunities for students to improve their knowledge of polymers in areas outside of their specific field of expertise, to apply their technical knowledge to problems in polymer engineering and science, and to develop technical skills that can be applied in industrial polymer engineering positions.
