      The goalThe students are introduced to modern techniques of polymer processing and the possibilities of modelling and simulating polymer processing operations.
      The outcomeStudents are trained to run, optimize and design polymer processing operations and design polymers of defined structure. Students are introduced to the methodology of simulating polymer processing operations. Students gain experience through analysis of case studies. Students are trained to work in a team and to adequately present the results of their investigations.
      Contents of lecturesOperations for obtaining complex multicomponent polymer products in a broader sense than classic processing of thermoplastic polymers, elastomers and thermosets. Modern nano- and micro-technologies of manufacturing polymer capsules, grains, etc. with chemically and/or biologically active content. Polymer composites and nanocomposites. Modelling and simulation of polymer processing.
