Course Structure

Through this course, the students will be able to understand and learn technical knowledge in polymer materials like plastic, rubber, latex, their quality control, designing and production.

The course delivery methods include lectures, lab work, assignments, workshops etc. Students are also encouraged to take up summer internships and go for industrial training.

In the last semester, the students are encouraged to take a research project. Completion of these is important to obtain graduate degree in B.Tech PT. In the final assessment, the students are graded on Theory paper, Term work (assignments), Lab work and Research Project.
