Academics

Department of Polymer & Process Engineering

undergraduate program

Offered Programs:

The Department's undergraduate degree program is designed to achieve balance between depth of knowledge acquired through practical training, academic research and exploration.  
The key role will be to utilize the University's initiative in areas of multi-disciplinary polymer related research. This is to assure that the highest quality education in Polymer and Process engineering is available to undergraduates, and in keeping with the mission of the university.

To inculcate application-oriented knowledge of polymer engineering so that the graduates should serve the industrial and research sectors with their developed analytical and design abilities showing high moral values and professional competency.

The educational objectives of the B.Sc. Polymer Engineering program are:

  • Technical Proficiency: Graduates will be technically competent and creative in all major aspects of polymer and process engineering as well as supporting math and science disciplines, allowing these graduates to conduct experiments and test, solve problems based on data from these experiments, design new products, materials and processes, all with a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
  • Interpersonal Skills and Management: Graduates will exhibit appropriate interpersonal and managerial skills by showing flexibility and adaptability in the workplace, possess the capacity to embrace new opportunities of emerging technologies, and embrace leadership and teamwork opportunities, all affording sustainable engineering careers.
  • Work ethics: Graduates will exhibit a professional work ethic including an interest in personal and professional growth.
  • Awareness of Societal Impact: Graduates will be aware of how their professional role will impact the global community and will act with global, ethical, societal, ecological, and commercial awareness expected of practicing engineering professionals.
  • Effective Communication: Graduates will be skilled in written and oral communications to effectively convey technical content.
