The National Symposium on Polymeric Materials (NSPM) is an event whereby the researchers and postgraduate students in the field of polymer will present their latest finding of their research. This year, the seminar will be jointly held by the Institute of Science (IOS) – Universiti Teknologi MARA, Faculty of Applied Sciences (FSG) – Universiti Teknologi MARA and the Plastic and Rubber Institute of Malaysia (PRIM). With the theme “Tomorrows Polymer Breakthrough is Invented Today”, NSMP2017 is hoped to be a major event for knowledge sharing and exchanging of ideas. This year’s event will be held at the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FSG), Shah Alam, Selangor from 21st until 22nd of October 2017.

With the strategic locations, attractive fees and indexed publications (SCOPUS index), it is hoped that this seminar will become a platform for the researchers and postgraduate students to exchange ideas and create networking between one and another for the betterment of their research.


To provide the opportunity for polymer researchers and polymer experts to share their knowledge and findings. 

To exchange information, ideas and expertise on the latest polymer research work, recent advances and technological breakthroughs.

To establish a network and promote future polymer research collaborations with worldwide polymer research groups.
