Industrial Technology & Packaging Minors

This minor is an interdisciplinary program. Students learn about the technical, social and business issues related to the use of new technology and how the technology is integrated into corporate operations. The minor appeals to students who are majoring in non-technical disciplines.

The purpose of this interdisciplinary minor is to complement the student’s degree major with a planned curriculum in packaging. The program is designed to capitalize on theories and skills learned in other disciplines, thereby uniquely preparing students for success as packaging professionals in positions ranging from highly technical research and development through purchasing, production, sales, and management.
