Rubber Technology is a specialized field of science that comprises of the study of transformation of rubbers or elastomers into useful products. It also focuses on the processing of natural rubber or synthetic rubber, processing of latex and so on. It provides Rubber Engineering Technology students with a diversified background that includes advanced coursework in the mixing and testing of rubber compounds for industry standards, the processing of rubber compounds into finished products that meet customer requirements, product and mold design and materials selection and properties.

The tremendously mounting use of automobiles enhanced the use of rubber in industries and has made rubber technology a lucrative career option. The rubber industry in India has much scope and growth is still being made in its paraphernalia. Not only in India but countries abroad as well are in dire need of experts in this field.
