B.E. Polymer Engineering or Bachelor of Engineering in Polymer Engineering is an undergraduate Polymer Engineering course. Polymer engineering is generally an engineering field that designs, analyses, and / or modifies polymer materials. Polymer engineering covers aspects of petrochemical industry, polymerization, structure and characterization of polymers, properties of polymers, compounding and processing of polymers and description of major polymers, structure property relations and applications. Also Polymer Engineering is associated with the theory of chemical engineering and caters to the production and use of polymers. Polymer engineers use the principles of plant design, process design, thermodynamics and transport phenomena to develop new products. Polymer engineers can supervise the production process of plastics and other polymers as well. The duration of the course is four years.
B.E. Polymer Engineering Eligibility
Candidates who have done their 10+2 Science with Physics, Chemistry and Maths will be eligible for pursuing B.E. or B.Tech. in Polymer Engineering or Plastic Technology.
Applicants who have good analytical, communication and teamwork skills are the most suitable for it.
Second, who have sharp imagination and good creativity that are required for developing new products and in devising new uses of the basic product are good match for it.
Those who want to go for further higher studies also are suitable for it.
How is B.E. Polymer Engineering Course Beneficial?
After successful completion of B.E or B.Tech. in Polymer Engineering one can directly be absorbed as an engineer in Polymer manufacturing units and research labs.
Candidates with an M.Sc. degree in chemistry or physics are also eligible for the M. Tech programme in polymer engineering.
Candidates who have qualified in the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) exam may easily get a seat for admission to the M.Tech. courses in reputed institutions.
Graduates with a degree in Polymer Engineering can become a part of polymer manufacturing and user industries. They can work as production supervisor, quality control inspector, production planner.
In the public sector, polymer engineers may find employment with the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural gas, Oil and Natural Gas Commission, Oil India Laboratories, petrochemicals engineering plants, Indian Institute of petroleum, polymers corporations of different states, Petroleum Conservation Research Association of India and other such organizations.
The engineers can also contribute to research and development activities.
Majority of students are employed in Polymer Conversion Industry or Polymer Processing Industry.
