Rationale
To satisfy the need of end user, many advanced polymers have been developed. Diploma Plastic engineer has to deals with the production as a responsible technician and first line supervisor in the industries. Thus he should be acquainted with various high performance, specialty plastics, alloys & blends used in high performance applications. Hence the course has been design to develop these competencies and its associated cognitive, practical and effective domain learning out comes.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Describe the need of high quality plastics.
ii. Categorize the polymers used in specialty applications.
iii. Explain the importance of polymer alloys and blends.
iv. Categorize and compare various biopolymers.
