FCK3110 Transport Properties of Polymers 6.0 credits

The course consists of a project assignment on the theme: mass transport properties of polymers, that the student will carry out, preferably with connections to the students own research. The content of the project is decided jointly between the student and the examiner, but should have a clear connection to the course literature. Individual introduction is given at the start, and the project is presented individually at the end.

Course offerings are missing for current or upcoming semesters.
Headings with content from the Course syllabus FCK3110 (Spring 2021–) are denoted with an asterisk ( )
