Diploma in Chemical Engineering Technology (Polymer)

Diploma Teknologi Kejuruteraan Kimia (Polimer)

Polymer technology can be described in brief as the manufacture, processing, analysis and application of long chain molecules. Materials that are typically classified as polymers include: plastics, paints, rubber, foams, adhesives, sealants, varnishes etc. Our daily life today is fully controlled by these materials that it is impossible to imagine life as we know it without these products. Industries that are totally dependent on polymers include information technology, aerospace, music, clothing, medical, motor manufacturing, building, packaging and many more.

The objective of the programme at UniKL MICET is to provide students with training in polymer technology at a semi-professional level. The programme covers the principles and operating of machines, characterization, instrumentation, fabrication processes and the compounding of polymeric materials. The course prepare students for a career in the polymer and related industries or, if already employed in the industry, to improve their effectiveness and career prospects; the course focuses on full integration of the theory and practice of polymer engineering; it develops experience and understanding of the practical aspects of polymer engineering essential for those with technological careers. The programme is designed to meet the educational needs of its graduate and professional students; to provide lifelong learning opportunities in the study of polymeric materials; to assists Malaysian industry in developing polymer technology; and to develop knowledge base on polymeric materials and to disseminate this knowledge on a global basis. UniKL MICET provides the students with a multifaceted programme that bridges traditional academic disciplines. Our students receive outstanding educational and practical experiences tailored to individual needs and responsive to the ever-changing technological and scientific needs of society.
