The TOP Course in Polymers, better known as TOP Course, exists since 1988. The TOP course offers technical knowledge about (biodegradable) polymers, for anyone interested to expand its knowledge in the “world of plastics”.
Since the start of the TOP course in 1988, a lot has changed in the world of polymers and plastics. To name a few: the emergence of functional materials, nanotechnology, the border crossing between synthetic and natural (bio) polymers, new processing methods, polymers in medical technology, etc. The basic principles of polymers, the relationship between the chain structure and various physical and mechanical properties remain unchanged. And that is the backbone of the TOP course.
