Chemical and Polymer Engineering
A chemical and Polymer engineering student learns to convert natural and synthetic raw materials into a host of products that include plastic, rubber, textile fabric and advanced materials. They are also trained in a way to come up with innovative ideas through application of polymer materials thus developing polymer processing.
This discipline deals with the amalgamation of chemical engineering with polymer science. Polymer science or macromolecular science is a subfield of materials science concerned with polymers. Polymer is a chemical compound or mixture of compounds, which consist of repeating structural units created through a process of polymerization. The students are trained in various CAE applications in the field of product and process design with various software such as Accelerys, Material Studio for molecular simulation, MATLAM, PROENGINEER, ANSYS, CATIA, FLUENT, POLYFLOW and MOLDFLOW etc.
After completing BE in Chemical and Polymer Engineering, you can go for ME or M. Tech followed by research.
You can look for opportunities in semi-conductors and electronics industries; Packaging of integrated circuits, chemical, plastics and polymer industries and lots more.
