SHROPSHIRE, ENGLAND (July 6, 11:55 a.m. ET) — Smithers Rapra Technology Ltd. and the University of Wolverhampton's School of Technology are partnering to offer a master of science degree in polymer engineering design.
According to Smithers Rapra, students will be able to study full- or part-time in the program. Coursework includes several Smithers Rapra short courses, plus additional study at the university's Telford, England, campus.
According to the partners, the master's program will be one of very few polymer-related post-graduate programs in the United Kingdom.
Wolverhampton acquired the assets and intellectual property of Telford's Polymer Training Ltd. in December 2009.
