PhD is a Doctorate of Philosophy which is basically a research based degree. PhD in Polymer Science & Technology deals with the research studies related to Polymer science, its various application and improvements in advanced technologies.
All post graduates are eligible for this course. Minimum qualifying marks may vary from institute to institute and specific information can be obtained from their particular websites.
For PhD. admissions, the procedure is not same for all. There are some institutes, which are offering admission to candidates who have qualified national level entrance tests with excellent ranks.

These candidates can also get opportunities in Tyre sector, Paint sector and many other Polymer firms.
Polymer Science & Technology is a broad term and candidate pursuing PhD. may need to select a specific topic for his/her work. Major subareas are Blends & Composites, Gene Therapy, Fuel Cell and Conducting Polymer are in demand. Other topics are Nano composites, LCP; Membrane based Separation, Bio-composites, Waste Utilization and Biosensor & Bio remediation.
Study of Cement polymer composites opens the door for Cement sector
