Radiation Polymer Engineering Technology Certificate (Post Secondary)

This certificate program provides the student with a comprehensive background in radiation processing of polymers which can immediately be applied in industry. The focus of this program is in the development of hands-on skills with sufficient theoretical background to apply these skills successfully. This program is not intended to be a substitute for the associate degree in mechanical engineering technology.

 Students must satisfy the prerequisite of each course in the program by either (a) completing the prerequisite courses, or (b) demonstrating to an appropriate faculty member that they have otherwise met the prerequisites. A minimum of 15 hours of the certificates curriculum must be completed at Kent State University. Transfer credits may be used provided a letter grade is on the original transcript.
