Course Objective

Recently, polymer materials has been widely used in industry and daily life. Furthermore, polymer production technology has been developing fastly . So, plastic materials compete other ordinary materials such as steel. Consequently, the students in this course will learn polymers, polymer structure, polymerization techniques, mechanical properties of polymers, reinforcement and fillers in polymers ,constructional problems of polymers, working and environmental conditions of polymers.
