The Department of Plastic and Polymer Engineering of COER is the only department which conducts B.Tech Plastic and Polymer Engineering in Uttarakhand & West UP. Plastic and Polymer Engineering is a specialized branch for engineering which involves the application of scientific and engineering principles to the  development of a wide variety of polymer products for different applications  such as packaging, home appliances, automobiles, paints, synthetic textiles, medical and surgical products, aircraft and shipping as well as defence equipment etc.

It also involves the study of structure-properties relationship, manufacturing process design of molds, various processing techniques, rheology and quality control during manufacturing and processing for plastic materials. Polymer Science and Technology is an interdisciplinary area that establishes a coherent bonding between chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and chemical, electronics, and polymer engineers. In recent years, the polymer industry is witnessing a very rapid growth.

The department offers a comprehensive and extensive course combined with the excellent infrastructural facilities. The department, besides being piloted by elite faculty, what sets it apart from the flock is the laboratories - one of the best equipped in the country. The syllabus is reviewed regularly to incorporate the cutting edge technologies prevailing in the field from time to time. The Department has justifiably provided itself on the quality of its academic programs and is keeping pace with the latest developments in engineering education. The Plastic and Polymer Engineering department has been producing exceptional academic results on a consistent basis ever since its inception. The Department endeavors to produce confident professionals tuned to real time working environment. The Department offers excellent academic environment with a team of highly qualified faculty members to inspire the students to develop their technical skills and inculcate the spirit of team work in them. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem solving skills and also to guide and motivate them to come up with innovations in latest technological domains. Industrial visits and Educational tours are made an integral part of the curriculum to familiarize the students with the industrial environments, working conditions and great industrial developments. The students of the Department get placed in premier Indian and multinational core Polymer manufacturing and processing companies and go on to attain prestigious positions. Many of our students are also pursuing Masters/Doctorate from NITs/IITs.

Hence, Polymer engineering is emerging as one of the most important fields of engineering. This has increased a great demand of qualified personnel in this field. This department, established in the year 2014 has consistently served as a genesis of engineers of excellent caliber in the field of Plastic and Polymer Engineering.
