This minor is designed to prepare students for careers with companies involved in the manufacturing, design, and use of polymer materials. Use of polymeric materials in industry today covers a wide and varied array of companies that value employees with a fundamental understanding of polymer materials selection, design and processing.
In addition to your normal engineering curriculum, students will take specialized courses in polymer material fundamentals, materials processing and testing, polymer design, and mold design and construction. Students will get actual hands-on experience in the Polymers Lab with extrusion, injection molding, vacuum forming and blow molding equipment.
The minor is open to any student enrolled in an engineering program.
Those interested in this minor should contact Tom Trusty, Department of Engineering Technology.
