Sustainable material choices are needed all around us in our daily lives. Our society needs to save energy and fresh water, as well as minimize waste from consumption and the production of daily products. During your studies you will learn about bio-based polymers as sustainable material choices, and the efficient and cost-effective use of materials in general. You will also become familiar with current product applications for conserving energy and fresh water resources.
Your studies combine modern polymer technology and processing, as well as sustainable product development and design. You learn about new product innovation and about the functional materials involved. What does it take to develop and design a smart product using the right materials?
240 ECTS credits
The degree programme in Materials Processing Technology at Arcada has a clear focus – functional materials and design.
Are you curious about product innovation? Would you like to learn how to develop and design smart and sustainable products by using just the right, functional materials? Do you appreciate a dynamic and research-oriented atmosphere? You may already have heard about products with smart or functional properties. In many cases the smartness actually lies in the materials. Polymers often offer the perfect combination of properties – the light weight, mechanical strength, elasticity and low costs of processing are just a few benefits of polymer-based material solutions. In our degree programme you will study material science and technology and become an expert in a booming field where engineers are in constant demand.
