Polymer Engineering

This a division of engineering which utilizes the knowledge and concept of chemical engineering to make easy designing, developing and manufacturing pieces from polymers. Polymer engineers utilize the principles of thermodynamics, process design, plant design and transport phenomena to increase new products. Polymer engineers also manage the production process of plastics and other polymers. Under their management, plastic molders and technicians to carry out the manufacturing processes. Polymer engineering is emerging as one of the most important fields of engineering with varied applications in low weight–high strength designs, aerospace applications and in general replacing metals with same strength with lesser density.
