Engineers in the packaging industry tackle different problems than other engineers as this discipline focuses less on developing mechanical systems or products and instead, incorporates mechanics to create products that protect and promote other products. In our rapidly changing society, the packaging industry is at the forefront of interdisciplinary design.
Packaging is for students interested in:
- Pursuing a degree that combines design, science, and creativity.
- Learning to innovate with a variety of materials and technology and apply conceptual thinking.
- Creating packages that allow products to be delivered safely and stand out in a retail environment.
B.S. Plastics Engineering
Plastics engineering is a fast-moving, high-demand industry that greatly impacts the way we live. You'll learn how to develop sophisticated materials to suit the needs of society. Taught by a team of industry experts, our program covers the latest developments in the field and is supported by a strong network of industry partners.
Plastics engineering is for students interested in:
- Designing and making functional/sustainable/cool plastics products used in medical, automotive, electronics, and consumer markets.
- Understanding and practicing the principles of chemical structures, properties, and processing of materials.
- Becoming a high in-demand professional excelling in today’s rapidly growing plastics industry particularly of the Midwest region.
