RPK Module D

RPK MODULE D | ‘Rheology & Polymer Processing’ (6 ECTS) | Autumn 2025




The RPK-programme is designed for engineers, academic and industrial researchers. To attend the RPK module D ‘Rheology & Polymer Processing’, you are expected to have a master’s degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or a related subject. As pre-requisite, having passed basic (bachelor-level) courses in polymer chemistry and/or polymer physics at the academic level are strongly recommended.


During this module you will gain comprehensive insights into the innovative advancements in computational rheology, polymer processing modeling, and the accurate prediction of mechanical properties in polymer products.


If you successfully complete RPK module D, you will be aware of the state of the art of what is possible nowadays in computational rheology, in the modelling of polymer processing and in the prediction of mechanical properties of polymeric products as they are influenced by the full thermo-mechanical history during processing. You will understand the success of the modern approaches to circumvent extensive trial and error processes and replace them by a numerical-experimental method that is based on model understanding.
