BTech in Polymer Technology deals with the study of processing and manufacturing of polymer based substances for various purposes. A student of the course learns to conceptualize, design, process and use polymer based substances for manufacturing need oriented products. With a rise in hype about ill-effects attached to use of polymer materials, there is a need for well informed graduates who can come up with advanced ideas of processing polymers and hence reduce the ill-effect due to the same.
As a part of the curriculum, students get hands-on experience on computer aided plant design, polymerization engineering, fabrication and processing of polymers.
Whereas, on the one hand, use of polymers is indispensable, on the other, there is fight for sustainable development and conservation of environment. It becomes very important here to have skilled people who can rationalize the effects and at the same time help organisations make profit through use of polymers and its products as there is a huge demand for the same too.
