Whether it’s computer housing, Airbus tail units, high-precision medical engineering components or microelectronics parts – plastics have become an integral part of our everyday lives. They simplify our lives in completely different ways and are full of innovative potential.
The Plastics Engineering course goes beyond the bounds of the material itself to consider efficient construction methods, continuous research and further development in this field. From environmentally-friendly and marketable plastics though to the optimisation of processing equipment, plastics engineering is shaping our future.
In addition to the physical, chemical and mechanical characteristics of the material, the Plastics Engineering course deals with specific processing technologies and areas of application. Construction and product design also play an important role.
As a result of the wide variety of possible uses of the material, plastics engineers enjoy numerous attractive career opportunities in very different sectors and areas of material development, plastics processing and product development.
