Course Details: In the study program students acquire necessary qualifications for future chemical engineering careers in the production of synthetic polymers and products of synthetic or natural polymers. There are four areas of study linked by common subjects of the theoretical basis for the technological study. The course on Natural and synthetic polymers introduces the complex study of the synthesis, production, and processing of natural and synthetic polymers based on plastics and rubber used in different industrial areas – e.g. rubber, automotive, textile, electronics, packaging, healthcare, etc. Students acquire knowledge about structure and processing of wood material in paper industry; theory of color and color perception, color measurement and reproduction; principles and procedures of professional text-image documents processing for their publication, principles of classical and digital printing techniques used in the printed media, packaging and printed fabrics. They study the relationships between material structure, properties and processing technology. The course combines deep theoretical and practical knowledge of chemical engineering, possible to be applied in chemical technology in the production of materials of natural and synthetic polymers, as well as in research and development.
