Advances in Polymer Engineering (Credit - Seniors II)
(CHEN 412)

This course is intended to provide a broad overview of polymer science and engineering. The emphasis will be given on the synthesis and structure of polymeric materials

By the end of the course, you should be able to do the following:

  • Understand and describe the manufacture of commercially important polymers
  • Present a basic understanding of the structure of polymer including, molecular weight and molecular weight distribution
  • Understand the different modes of polymerization, their characteristics, and the difference between them
  • Present an advanced understanding of the kinetics of polymerization
