Rapra Technology and The University of Wolverhampton’s School of Engineering and the Built Environment (SEBE) announce their co-operation in the provision of a Postgraduate Certificate in Polymer Engineering, which is available from September 2006.
In recent years there has been a gradual decrease in the provision of polymer based courses at higher education level in the UK and these are now limited to just a few establishments. This unique industry-led programme has been designed to address the situation.
The Wolverhampton Postgraduate Certificate in Polymer Engineering will enable managers and technologists working in industry to increase their knowledge of polymer engineering through a flexible programme based on short courses provided by Rapra Technology followed by further study and assessment provided by the University of Wolverhampton to obtain the award.
Participants will be fully supported and mentored in the application of their learning in their own working environment.
Rapra already has a well established short course programme of polymer based professional development courses. Participants on these courses are now offered a pathway onto the postgraduate programme by accruing credits towards the award.
Key features of the programme include its flexible time-frame, typically two years to complete, and the provision of mentored support to participants in applying knowledge gained.
The University of Wolverhampton, through it’s Innovative Product Development Centre in Telford and Rapra Technology have developed a close relationship, co-operating on a series of polymer related funded projects designed to support industry in the West-Midlands.
