The academic activities in IPPI began in 1989 when a collaborative M.Sc. programme was coordinated in conjunction with Faculty of Engineering of Tehran University. A total 46 MSc students graduated from IPPI during the years 1989 to 1994.
In 1995 Iran Polymer and Petrochemical Institute (IPPI) received its higher education teaching and training charter and started to offer MSc courses independently in the same year. During the past 6 years 21 MSc students have been graduated from IPPI and in 1997 the first group of PhD students started their research programmes. The duration of M.Sc. Courses in IPPI is two years and Ph.D. degrees are four years. For both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees students attend formal lectures followed by research projects.
In addition to these higher degrees IPPI also offers short courses in different areas of polymer science and engineering. IPPI is well equiped for postgraduate research works offering a wide range of modern facilities for research in polymer science and engineering.
