A packaging career today requires a thorough knowledge of materials, methods, design concepts, and machinery to develop and produce the packages that protect and preserve a product, help market the product and instruct the consumer in its proper use.
UW-Stout’s Bachelor of Science degree program in Packaging prepares students for technical or management responsibilities in the packaging industry to meet these needs. The program places strong emphasis on the application of theory to strengthen problem solving abilities and challenges students by providing opportunities to solve “real” packaging industry problems in classroom/laboratory settings. A GPA of 2.6 is required.
The trend in the packaging industry is to hire employees who can function in more than one area at career entry. UW-Stout’s Packaging program recognizes this trend by offering the student several “emphasis” options which include course and laboratory work beyond the technical core of the program. This distinguishing feature allows students to draw on other well-recognized programs offered at UW-Stout: graphic arts, graphic design, food science, business and sales, quality and manufacturing, and packaging research and development.
With the quantity and variety of products produced in the world, it is easy to understand that packaging is a dynamic multibillion dollar industry in need of well-educated men and women. Graduates of the program are positioned advantageously for entry into the expanding and evolving packaging industry, as well as for further studies in the field of packaging.
