  • Polymer Science and Engineering

    The polymer science and engineering (PSE) certificate provides a foundation in polymer synthesis, processing and characterization, and how this relates to polymer structure and properties. This facilitates the proper selection of polymers for various applications such as plastics, composites, biomaterials, organic electronics, and rheology modifiers.
