Industrial Technology & Packaging

Packaging Concentration

This interdisciplinary minor complements the student’s degree major with a planned curriculum in packaging. The Packaging 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 to  purchasing, production, sales and management.

Students gain the skills needed for the design of package forms and graphics, the specifications of materials and machinery to be used, the evaluation of package systems, as well as planning and coordinating packaging requirements. These specialized skills result from an integration of knowledge gained through the Packaging curriculum with that of the major discipline. A significant understanding of packaging issues and their impact on the industry is also gained.

To add this minor, take the completed application form to Koushik Saha, Packaging Minor Advisor, (03-433) for a signature and turn it into the Orfalea Student Services (03-100).
