Brief Summary of ProposalThe Department of Polymer Science believes there is pool of talented high school students in northeast Ohio who would like the opportunity to study polymer science at one of the premier departments in the world. They believe there is a barrier to this since their department is a graduate program only. By packaging existing courses in a degree format that will allow students to obtain a quality undergraduate science degree that can be completed in three years, the barrier to attracting this talented pool of high school students will disappear. Since chemistry/polymer is one of the major industrial sectors in northeast Ohio, this program will greatly benefit the economy. See PS-09-04 for new course 9871:497.
