Natural and Synthetic Polymers

In the Masters program students acquire necessary qualification for future chemical engineering careers in production of synthetic polymers and products of synthetic or natural polymers. There are four areas of study linked by common subjects of theoretical basis for technological study. The course of Natural and synthetic polymers introduces the complex study of synthesis, production and processing of natural and synthetic polymers based on plastics and rubber used in different industrial areas – e.g. rubber, automotive, textile, electronics, packaging, healthcare etc. Students acquire knowledge about structure and processing of wood material in paper industry; theory of colour and colour perception, colour measurement and reproduction; principles and procedures of professional text-image documents processing for their publication, principles of classical and digital printing techniques used in the printed media, packaging and printed fabrics. They study the relationships between material structure, properties and processing technology. The course combines deep theoretical and practical knowledge of chemical engineering, possible to be applied in chemical technology in the production of materials of natural and synthetic polymers, as well as in research and development.

The graduate of the Natural and synthetic polymers course is an engineer well familiar with the principles of the chemical synthesis reactions and modification of polymers, as well as the structure of polymeric materials, and is able to apply it in optimization and processing modelling using computer technology. The graduate is able to apply new research knowledge in practice and uses modern methods and means for analysing and solving technical and technological problems.  He/she acquires the necessary skills for controlling technological processes and development of new processes and technologies, leading teams and projects, formulating research goals and using methods and techniques of process and material quality control. The graduate is also able to continue his further individual education, run their own business independently in the chemical research, polymeric materials processing, distribution, sale and application of polymers, as well as join the state sector or continue to doctoral studies.

Prospects of graduates

The graduate of Natural and Synthetic Polymers Master of Science Program is a chemical engineer, who is holder of knowledge of manufacturing, processing, structure, properties and application of natural and synthetic polymer materials. Graduate is able to analyze technical problems, develop new technological processes, to simulate and to optimize processes in the technological units, to develop new polymeric materials, new technical and technological processes in the area of production, processing and applications of polymer materials. The graduate is specialist in the area of production and processing of plastics, rubber, chemical fibres and textile materials and their finishing treatment. The graduate is a specialist on structural and chemical composition, isolation, degradation, synthesis, analysis, production and testing of lignocelluloses biomaterials from plant raw materials. Graduates are prepared for the carrier of technologists and managers in printing and packaging industry, movie and still pictures laboratories, publishing houses and graphic studios and private enterprises.
