Objectives The subject Polymer Technology serves the scientific and technical professional training of polymer technicians and qualifies them for further Master's studies with a polymer technical, economic-technical or chemical-technological orientation.

In particular, the subject of polymer technology serves to convey practical and theoretical teaching content from materials science and testing of polymer materials, general and special characterisation of polymers, plastics processing, plastics machine and tool construction, applied thermal engineering and rheology, dimensioning and design of polymer and composite material components and component testing.

Subject Essential property categories and property profiles in polymeric materials; areas of materials testing and characterisation of polymers; standardisation; essential aspects and elements of various testing standards with emphasis on ISO standards (mechanical and non-mechanical properties); testing methods and testing of plastics and composites. Practical course in small groups: Practical exercises in testing polymers; conducting and documenting tests; presentation and interpretation of results.
Criteria for evaluation Active participation in the laboratory exercises; preparation of results and presentation as an exercise team.
Methods 1. explanation of experimental methods and their areas of application; processing and presentation of the measurement and test results as well as presentation in team mode.
2. practical implementation and experiments.
