Objectives and competences

The fundamental objectives of the study programme Polymer Technology are:

  • To enhance knowledge from the field of polymer and additional materials, technologies and equipment and tool development, also with the help of computer supported technologies.
  • To qualify the graduates for management of processes, projects and quality.
  • To qualify graduates for research and development and enable them to get knowledge, research experiences and competences for independent preparation and leading of projects and presentations.   

 

General competences the graduates will acquire by the programme are:

  • The ability to show enhanced knowledge and understanding of main ideas, concepts, principles and theories from their study programme.
  • The ability to use their knowledge and methology when solving complex quantity and quality problems and in a new and less familiar multi-disciplinary context.
  • To know research methods, procedures and to be able to evaluate critically.
  • To be able to analyse and synthesise professionally and predict solutions or consequences.
  • To be able to use new information in context.
  • To be objective when evaluating research results and presentations.
  • To be autonomous at their professional work.
  • To be able to solve multi-disciplinary problems with close co-operation with co-workers.
  • To know and use IT.
  • To be able to form and present their professional opinion.
  • To be able to communicate – to present their findings clearly, also for the non-professional audience.
  • To be aware and to follow the professional ethics.
  • To be able to communicate in the international professional environment, also in a foreign language.
  • To accept responsibilities for their own professional development and life-long learning.
  • To have the knowledge and competences to be able to continue their studies.

 

Subject- specific competences the graduates will acquire by the programme:         

  • To gain enhanced knowledge of polymer materials, production, modification and remodelling of polymer materials – appropriate for innovations, new ideas and the use of the acquired knowledge in the industrial or research environment.
  • The ability to use knowledge in an unknown or multi-disciplinary context in the field of polymer technology.
  • The skill to lead and perform procedures in a lab and to know all the necessary instruments and procedures.
  • The ability to independently and safety perform experimental work and evaluate it.
  • Knowledge and competences that are appropriate for the advanced technologies from the field of polymer technology and similar ones.
  • To know analytical methods for the characterisation of polymers and polymer materials and the ability to interpret the results.
  • To understand the importance of sustainable development.
  • The ability to understand relations between the form, microstructure and features of metal and non-metal materials.
  • To know the importance of nano dimensions and to understand nano effects.
  • To understand the importance and origin of polymer materials from sustainable sources.
  • To understand the importance of bio-degradability when polymer materials are used in medicine.
  • To be able to correlate structures of polymer materials with adhesion features.
  • To know how to prepare and remake more-component polymer materials.
  • The knowledge and understanding of the importance of quality design and construction of polymer products and tools.
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge and understanding of reoloic laws for the processes of polymer remodelling.
  • Knowledge of theoretical  and  practical numerical methods for solving of construction problems when remaking the polymers.
  • Understanding the business processes in organisations and the connection between managerial processes in them and use of this knowledge when working with people in the organisation.
  • The ability to understand, critically analyse or synthesise theoretical and applicative knowledge of the quality management in the business and production environment and their implementation into specific production, development and selling processes.
