Program in Polymers and Soft Matter

Visit Department Website

The Program in Polymers and Soft Matter (PPSM) [formerly PPST] at MIT is an interdisciplinary program offering graduate education in the field of polymer science and engineering.

The Program's goals are to provide educational opportunities for students who wish to focus their graduate education within the broad field of polymers and to foster a spirit of community and collaboration among the large group of students, post-docs, faculty, and visitors involved in polymer-related activities at MIT.
