Polymer and Colloid Science
Polymers and colloids play an ever more increasing role as materials in our everyday life. They are the constitutive parts of emulsions, foams, coatings, fibres, cells, and tissue. With the help of nanotechnology, fundamentally new materials, properties, and functions could be realised with exciting applications in the areas of electro-optics and biomaterials. This course will begin with an introduction and cover the most relevant topics from synthesis, structural, and electro-optical studies of polymers and colloids to advanced device fabrication. This course complements the second-week lectures on polymer engineering.
Advanced Polymers in Engineering and Energy
Polymer engineering implies the development and innovation of efficient polymeric products. Key aspects of achieving this aim are advanced knowledge about polymers, identification of trends, and sustainability. This course focuses on giving you an insight into polymers and the polymer industry as well as current topics concerning future trends for polymers. Furthermore, the course includes an industry tour (where you can experience modern processing technics) and three practical sessions in which you will fabricate your own polymeric parts.
