Doctoral Program in Materials Science and Engineering


Organic chemistry

This course provides a basic foundation in organic chemistry and polymer chemistry, including chemical nomenclature of organic compounds and polymers, an understanding of chemical structures, chemical reaction mechanisms, as well as methods of organic and polymer synthesis.

Polymer science

Introduction to polymer physics and the link between chemical structure and macroscopic properties, with emphasis on morphology and thermomechanical behaviour, polymer technology and manufacturing techniques, providing a basis for the rational selection of polymers in an industrial context.

Organic electronic materials

This course will introduce students to the structural requirements of charge transport in organic materials as well as synthetic methods for their preparation.
