What is Polymer Engineering?
Plastics and rubber combine with adhesive resin and fiber to form a group of materials known as polymers. Polymers have special properties that can make them very useful in the modern world. Most polymers are derived from oil chemicals, although some are found naturally such as polymers such as natural rubber and cellulose. A variety of structures and products emanating from polymers such as plastics, molded materials, synthetic fibers, and rubbing polymers are made by engineering graduates. We need them in our lives because our use of polymer products is increasing rapidly. Polymer engineering graduates should keep in mind when producing such products that these products are environmentally friendly and recycled, and polymers must be managed properly. Engineers develop new products based on the polymer's plant design, process design, and thermodynamics and how the product will be delivered to the end-user. Since a large number of companies have opened up in India as well as abroad, the need for chemical or polymer engineering students has increased greatly.
The polymer has become a rapidly growing domain of the materials industry. Polymer engineers apply traditional skills of chemical engineers, such as plant design, process design, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena, to various problems associated with the production and use of polymers. Many engineers working in the industry who are trying to solve these problems have a background in chemical engineering or polymers.
