The Polymer Science and Engineering Department at UMass Amherst takes great pride in our extensive interactions with industries around the world. The following companies are currently supporting research and student fellowships in the department.
In addition, funds have also be given to support outreach activities such as our annual Poster Symposia, the Excellence in Polymer Education Program and PSE Club. Such corporate gifts initiate and sustain specialized educational or research activities and events. The gift of PSE fellowships is especially crucial, as these fellowships enable the department to allow the first-year students to focus on their studies.
