Polymer Science & Engineering

Please note, the following course details are subject to change and are updated regularly.

Week 1 - Polymer and Colloid Science

Polymers and Colloids play an ever-increasing role as materials in our everyday life. They are the constitutive parts of many new functional devices covering a wide range of emerging applications. Functional textiles, sensors, gas barrier coatings, electrical and thermal insulators are just a few examples. At the same time emulsions, foams, and coatings, are widely used in everyday life. Polymers and colloids are essential building blocks for fundamentally new materials with exciting mechanical, optical, thermal, or electrical properties. This course will begin with an introduction to both types of materials and will cover aspects of synthesis and characterization. We will then progress towards functional aspects of polymers, colloids, structured, and composite materials derived from them.

This course is particularly suitable for advanced undergraduate students and early-stage master students with a particular interest in specializing in the fascinating fields of polymers and colloids. Ph.D. students from related disciplines such as physics or engineering will appreciate the basic and multidisciplinary contents of the lectures.

Week 2 - Advanced Polymers in Engineering and Energy

Polymer engineering implies the development and innovation of efficient polymeric products. Key aspects of achieving this aim are advanced knowledge about polymers, identification of trends and sustainability. This course focuses on giving you an insight into polymers and the polymer industry as well as current topics concerning future trends for polymers. Furthermore, the course includes an industry tour, where you can experience modern processing techniques, and three practical sessions, in which you will fabricate your own polymeric parts.

Course details can also be found on the course flyer.
