Master of Science - Polymers for Advanced Technologies at The University of Sheffield: Tuition Fee: £26,200.00 GBP / Year(Scholarship Available)
This specialist course in polymer science is designed to train and expose students to the most modern aspects of polymer science. This course is excellent preparation for a career in industry or continued academic studies at the forefront of polymer science.
Laboratory training covers a range of polymer synthesis methods and analytical techniques including size-exclusion chromatography, viscosity analysis, and IR and NMR spectroscopy. Other modules highlight how polymer chemistry overlaps with other areas of science, by focusing on concepts from physics that explain polymers’ unique physical properties, and engineering principles to look at the effects that polymer microstructures have on polymer performance.
Students will also take part in a research training program and complete their own research project, which will take up around a third of the course. Some students work on projects with an industry partner.
