Study tracks and mobility for Polymer Technology

The master's programme in Polymer Technology is a collaboration between two universities with two study tracks covering polymer technology from different perspectives. In each study track, the students are given a background in polymer chemistry and polymer physics and specialised skills in one chosen innovative polymer technology engineering topic.

There are two study tracks in the programme. In the Macromolecular materials track, you will spend your first year at DTU and second at KTH. In the Polymer engineering track, you will spend the first year at KTH and the second at DTU. In the application, you should include a summary sheet indicating which track you are applying for.

For your second year, your application dossier will subsequently be transferred to the second-year university. During your second semester, you will receive an admission letter from the second-year university in order for you to have time to apply for accommodation and a visa if needed.

The first year is divided into core courses (25–35 ECTS credits) and key competence (25–35 ECTS credits). The core courses cover the areas of polymer chemistry and polymer physics. The second year consists of courses of 30 ECTS credits and a degree project of 30 ECTS credits.
