Study at two Nordic universities

The joint master’s programme in Polymer Technology is a collaboration between the five leading technical universities in the Nordic countries (Nordic Five Tech). The programme gives you a unique opportunity to tailor your degree based on your academic interests. You will get to study at two of the partner universities, spending one year at each. You graduate with one master’s degree from each of the two universities. Nordic Five Tech is a strategic alliance consisting of:

Polymer Technology

The programme provides a solid base in the chemistry and physics of organic materials, as well as their connection to real-life applications. A broad range of courses and the choice of one of five specialisation tracks allow students to customise their degree and focus on individual areas of particular interest.

Students will learn about design, synthesis, characterisation, production and development of polymeric materials throughout the duration of the programme. The materials covered in the programme includes plastics, rubber, composites, paper, wood and other biological materials. Students will be able to tackle challenges pertaining to the choice of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), and the choice of production processes, material combinations and manufacturing methods. Great emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and the development of sustainable materials.

This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. The first year covers a broad range of topics providing students with in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals of polymer technology and related areas. The curriculum also contains selective courses to prepare students for the second-year study track. Each university provides one specialisation track designed to deepen the students’ knowledge in a specific area. The tracks are:

  • Biomaterial science (Aalto University)
  • Advanced materials (Chalmers University of Technology)
  • Polymer engineering (Technical University of Denmark)
  • Macromolecular materials (KTH Royal Institute of Technology)
  • Industrial processes (Norwegian University of Science and Technology)

In the application you must include a summary sheet in which you indicate your study track and specify which universities you will attend in accordance to the mobility scheme.

Topics covered

Polymer synthesis, polymer physics, fibre technology, pulp and paper technology, biomedical materials and materials for sustainable applications.
