"It is no accident that Akron is positioned in the heart of the highest concentration of polymer companies in the nation. The university polymer programs and the State’s industry grew up together, fueling innovation and talent development with their collaborations. From the earliest UA polymer course in 1910 to cutting edge aerospace, medical and electronic technologies, UA’s College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering has been at the forefront of industrial evolutions. Much of this has been captured and translated into workforce development training. Since 1993 our training division has provided industry relevant courses and going forward we continue to expand our offerings into emerging technologies, as the training arm of Akron Polymer Technology Services to industry."
