Biobased Materials are materials that are (partly) made from biological components. Over the past decades it has become clear that the chemical industry has to look for biological renewable feedstocks to produce sustainable plastics and materials in the immediate future. Alternative sources also provide the opportunity to develop materials with new and advanced properties for all kinds of applications.
At Maastricht University research and education on Biobased Materials have been organized at the Brightland Chemelot campus. The master Biobased Materials will start in September 2015, and information on this programme can be found here. In addition, an exciting and ambitious research programme has been initiated, revolving around the Biobased Materials research group. Information on their research activities can be viewed here in the near future (pages under construction).
Why study Biobased Materials at Maastricht University? · A multi-disciplinary programme in biobased materials science · An open curriculum in which the students can choose their own track in the field of biobased materials · A novel way of teaching materials science at master level using problem based learning and research based learning · A clear connection to local industry involved in research and development of materials and polymers, also the biobased variants of these and new biobased polymers · A clear connection to highly relevant developments within science, industry and society · This programme is situated at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus; next to one of the largest chemical sites in europe with state-of-the-art infrastructure and laboratory facilities · A highly motivated staff who has the expertise within the field of biobased materials, combined with industrial experience enriching their view on this topic · A curriculum that not only aims for knowledge transfer but also strongly involves competence and skills development into the programme · Possibility to meet your future employer on-site or in the region
