Courses

DEMa offers several extension courses aiming to transmit to the society, students from various Brazilian institutions, industry professionals and entrepreneurs knowledge of materials science and engineering, collaborating with the scientific, social and economic development of the region and country.

Training Course in Plastics Technology (NRPP)

Brief description: These courses aim to provide specialization to professionals working with polymers who did not have specific training in this area. Recycling of knowledge of Plastics Technology to professionals already trained in this area. The course is subdivided into modules of 24 hours each which are taught at the DEMa/UFSCar with one third of the time being used for laboratory practices.
Responsible: Prof. Dr. Leonardo Bresciani Canto
