MSc Polymers for Advanced Technologies

University of Sheffield Department of Chemistry

Full time September MSc One year

About the course

On this specialist course in polymer science and engineering, you'll learn how polymers are made and behave, how important polymer-based products are developed and how to use cutting-edge techniques to create new advanced materials.

About the course

At the start of this one-year course, you will study the fundamental science of how polymers are structured and synthesised, and how they behave. You will also learn about the techniques that chemists use to identify, characterise and analyse polymers. Laboratory training covers a range of polymer synthesis methods and analytical techniques including size-exclusion chromatography, viscosity analysis, and IR and NMR spectroscopy.

Other modules highlight how polymer chemistry overlaps with other areas of science, by focussing on concepts from
