Polymer and Materials Science Program Description
The proposed Polymer and Material Sciences program (PMS) was established to facilitate a value-added engagement between Coppin State University (CSU) and prospective industrial partners, such as Lockheed Martin, Under Armor and Northrop Grumman, with the ultimate objective of accelerating research and technological innovations that are highly needed by local and state manufacturing enterprise. The Program is uniquely designed to give students an understanding of design, synthesis, characterization, and function in a large number of materials. Students will receive an in-depth understanding of the relationships between the structure and properties of materials and a selection of research areas driven by industry-university partnerships with a focus on themes relevant to the polymers and materials industry.
