Brief Summary of ProposalThe program packages existing courses offered by Chemistry and Polymer Science in a degree format that will allow students to obtain a quality undergraduate science degree that can be completed in three years and obtain a degree of master in polymer science in two additional years. Polymer Science will directly participate in undergraduate advising. The goal is to remove the barrier to attracting a 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. Since polymer chemistry is one of the major industrial sectors in northeast Ohio, this program will greatly benefit the economy.
