Plastic Engineering deals with the process of processing, designing and manufacturing of plastics products. A plastic engineer analyses the nature of plastic materials, their properties and other mechanical properties of plastics. A plastic engineer has to design a product according to the mechanical, electrical, barrier and thermal properties of the material. A plastics engineer also learns the various ways of reducing ecological foot prints of their products.
With light weight, non-corrosive, rust resistant, good insulation properties, plastic has more than one reason to be widely acceptable by people. But, given the ecological disturbances and various environment related issues in the present era, it becomes very important to have skilled and well-trained manpower that can rationalise the cost of production and distribution in the right manner and hence make the product worthy of its cost.
