Program description - January 2026

You are probably taking it for granted - most of us do - but packaging is a big part of your everyday life and is used in almost every industry.

This program will teach you how to combine the basic principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering, and business to design and evaluate packaging using different materials (metal, glass, plastic, paper, and corrugated boards). You will get to test different packaging solutions using standard industry-grade equipment and possibly partner directly with industry organizations to work on their teams. You will also study topics critical to any packaging system, from product protection (safety and security) and durability to the overall environmental impact and how we can mitigate it.

Master the fundamentals of packaging technology and become a part of the growing, dynamic community of professionals that help influence society’s and industry’s needs.
