WHAT IS CHEMICAL AND POLYMER ENGINEERING ?
For UG: Candidates must have passed 10+2 with minimum qualifying marks in aggregate with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics as core subjects. Independent entrance tests for this programme are also held by the various state, central, and private universities which mostly require 50% as the prerequisite to appear for the test.
For PG: Candidates must hold a degree in Bachelor of Engineering/B.Tech in Polymer Engineering/Plastic Technology along with a good score in entrance tests held for PG programme held by the various state, central, and private universities. Candidates with an MSc degree in chemistry or physics are also eligible for the M. Tech programme in Polymer Engineering.
SCOPE OF CHEMICAL AND POLYMER ENGINEERING
- Graduates and postgraduates can be employed as production supervisors, quality control inspectors, mold designers, and production planners in several private and public sector companies.
- They can even work as technologists or polymer scientists in the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Oil and Natural Gas Commission (ONGC), Oil laboratories, and petrochemicals engineering plants.
- Polymer engineers can also opt for teaching jobs and work as lecturers or professors in engineering institutes.
- Research and development, processing, quality control, design and manufacture of molds, training, management and related activities are some other areas where they can find jobs.
