.... a very less talked of Engineering Branch. We all know about plastic. But very less is known about what goes behind the creating of plastics that is ruling our lives since it's invention. A lot of research is going in this field, as to how we can make the plastic products more Eco-friendly and re-utilizable. Plastics engineering encompasses the processing, design, development, and manufacture of plastics products. The nature of plastic materials and the properties like outdoor weatherability, thermal properties such as upper use temperature, electrical properties, barrier properties, and resistance to chemical attack, all pose unique challenges to an Engineer. The different fields where a Plastics Engineer could specialize are: Medical plastics Automotive plastics Recycled or recyclable plastics Biodegradable plastics ....and many more to come. This can be a great trade of engineering, for engineers aspiring to get their hands dirty in something different.
