Program Offered

M.Sc. Industrial Polymer Chemistry


M. Sc. Industrial Polymer Chemistry is a two year, six trimester program. The course covers areas like plastics, paints & surface coatings, rubbers & elastomers, adhesives, fibre and composite and packaging technology. Apart from above, the students have to undergo rigorous industry intenship for 3 months during their final trimester with paid internships for meritorus and deserving students. Our advisory committee consisting of eminent scientists, academicians and industry experts have crafted this course keeping in mind the requirement of the industry and the research imperative concerning polymers. The program is interdisciplinary, applied and job oriented with 70:30 blend of science and Engineering.

Program Structure

First year Industrial Polymer Chemistry program covers organic, inorganic and physical chemistry along with fundamentals of polymer science and advanced polymer chemistry and their respective laboratories. At the end of the first year the course moves towards the core area of polymer science and students learn in-depth about the polymer physics and structure property relationship, rubbers and elastomers and in depth case studies of industrial polymer manufacturing.


At MIT-WPU we follow Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). The CBCS allows the students to choose from the specialized tracks as per their interest. The specialized tracks covered during the two year degree program include plastics, rubbers and elastomers, paints and surface coating, fibers and adhesives and composites.

Second year of the program covers some engineering aspects such as polymer testing & characterization, processing (theory and laboratory), rheology, paints and surface coating, polymer industries, feedstocks and sustainability, research methodology and specialized tracks mentioned above. A student learns about seventeen compulsory theory papers and has to choose three elective papers from more than nine elective courses of his interest plus eight laboratories as compulsory courses.

Industrial training, a research project for six months, industrial visits and seminars are other important mandatory features of the course. The duration of the study is six trimesters to be completed in two years.
