Polymer Specialty Certificate

 

This program is the first of its kind offered in the state of Texas.

 

The Polymer Specialty Certificate program is designed to provide a strong interdisciplinary educational program for undergraduate and graduate engineering and suitably prepared science students interested in pursuing a career in polymers. The program consists of (4) three-hour courses for a total of 12 credit hours. The certificate reduces training time required to turn Texas A&M students into productive members of the industrial workforce.
