This minor is open to all students.
The packaging industry requires creative thinkers and problem solvers to continue to improve environmental sustainability, quality and packaging efficiency. This minor provides exposure to the tools and knowledge required to solve practical problems in packaging and will help students to gain employment in the packaging industry.
Students applying for the minor must obtain written approval from their academic advisor and the undergraduate coordinator in packaging science at least two semesters before graduation.
This minor offered by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences differs from the Packaging Engineering specialization in the Biological Engineering degree. While both sets of curriculum use overlapping courses, the major is available only available to students of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering.
