Imagine your life without a toothbrush, mobile phone, refrigerator, comb, bucket, camera, or even a desk and chair. “What a weird question” could probably peek out instantly from your mouth. Well, if you say you can survive on wooden combs or steel buckets, you would readily become the talk of the town. Gone are those days when people were dependent upon other materials to fulfill their daily needs and requirements. Besides, plastic is not just used widely in manufacturing appliances in our day-to-day life, but they’ve also become a part of various industries, namely, building and construction, aviation and space technology, and automobiles. In fact, automobile industry is one of the largest users of plastic and plastic components. The extensive use of plastic has made our life easier and convenient.
Plastic technology is widely known as a branch of technology that constitutes processing, design, development, and manufacture of plastic products. Also referred to as plastic engineering, plastic technology educates one on how to apply the basic principles of engineering in order to produce plastic products by assisting and guiding engineers and other professionals. The ever-growing use of plastic has increased the scope of plastic technology, with increasing demand for plastic technologists and engineers. One can estimate the growth prospects of pursuing a plastic engineering course. Umpteen job opportunities can be looked upon in both public and private sectors.
Seeing the vast scope of Plastic & Fiber Technology worldwide AIPS introduced Advance Specialization Program in Plastic & Fiber Technology in distance learning mode.
Enormous job opportunities are available for both fresh pass-outs and experienced professionals in plastic technology. As a fresher, a plastic technologist can be paid a salary of INR 15,000 – 20,000 per month in the public sector. The pay package is higher in the private sector, around INR 20,000 – 30,000 per month. With an experience of 2-3 years, a skilled plastic technologist can easily be offered a very handsome monthly remuneration starting from INR 50,000 on-wards.
