Abstract

Many of the students at Kettering University in Flint, Mich., undertake cooperative work assignments in the manufacturing sector, where they encounter plastics product design and testing. From their need to understand plastic processing and design, the plastics curriculum was developed. Students benefit from plastics course work that includes polymer chemistry, processing, material selection and part design. The materials selection course, Polymer Properties, provides students with an understanding of the relationships between composition and polymer processing, and an ability to select appropriate polymers for design applications.
