Advanced Diploma for Polymer Process Technicians
This Advanced Diploma programme is designed to prepare technicians for a career in the field of the transformation of rubbers and plastics, with their different types and compositions, into finished specialised products. It provides a good level of knowledge in the fields of polymer sciences and manufacturing technologies. The scientific background of the technologies and processes involved, including material properties, process control and the effect of variables such as temperature, pressure, and cycle time, are also studied. Training is achieved through a combination of theory and practical sessions of this latest technology in the lecture rooms and workshops, as well as at local industry leaders of this ever-growing sector of manufacturing. Applicants have to be able to work within the industries concerned.
