Career opportunities

Our graduates are highly sought after by employers, and all of our graduates either find employment in industry or go on to higher level study at the end of their degree. Careers include research and development, process engineers, management positions, and technical roles within both large multinationals and smaller businesses. Other graduates choose to apply their technical and analytical skills in research and development or going on to higher level study (e.g. towards a PhD).

Teaching and learning

The course contains a balance of lectures and practical work, accompanied by regular tutorials that will help you with your learning through guided practice and instant feedback. Practical work and tutorials are often carried out in teams, which not only aid your learning, but also helps to you develop valuable intra-personal skills. You will also benefit from small-group tutorials, during which you can discuss any course-related matters and others like career choice, or how to improve your attractiveness to employers.

Alongside the dedicated polymer engineering teaching, we also provide formal teaching in communication and transferable skills, including management, organizational behavior, computing and presentation techniques etc.

Assessment

You are assessed by a combination of coursework and examination. The program is, by nature, practical and this is reflected in the teaching methods and assessment. All units contain a significant coursework element made up of laboratories, problems classes, computing exercises, team projects, case studies, or essays. This greatly enhances your understanding of the subject and your learning experience. A large part of the final year is devoted to a project.
