Engineering polymers are materials with outstanding mechanical properties such as stiffness, toughness, and low creep that make them valuable in the manufacture of structural products like gears, bearings, electronic devices, and auto parts. Engineering Polymers is a course that reviews specialty engineering polymers and thermally curable resins (epoxies). Other engineering plastics, including acetals, polyamides, polyimides, polyacrylates, polycarbonates, and polyesters will be presented.

Course Outcome

After completing Engineering Polymers students will be equipped with a basic understanding of the following:

  • how to differentiate between the various engineering polymer types
  • how to select the appropriate engineering polymer for the application
  • how to characterize and assess product performance
  • how to comply with regulatory standards
