Description/content

Week 1 - Polymer Science

Polymers and Colloids play an ever more increasing role as materials in our everyday life. They are the constitutive parts of emulsions, foams, coatings, fibres, cells, and tissue. With the help of nanotechnology, fundamentally new materials, properties and functions could be realised with exciting applications in the areas of electro-optics and biomaterials. This course would begin with an introduction and cover the most important topics from synthesis, structural and electro-optical studies of polymers and colloids to advanced device fabrication.

Week 2 - Advanced Polymers in Engineering and Energy

Polymer Engineering implies the development and innovation of efficient polymeric products. Key aspects to achieve this aim are advanced knowledge about polymers, identification of trends, and sustainability. This course focuses on polymers and polymer industry as well as current topics concerning future trends for polymers. Furthermore, the course includes an industry tour, during which you can experience modern processing techniques. The programme also includes three practical courses in which you will fabricate your own polymeric parts.
