WELCOME TO PACKAGING ENGINEERING
Rutgers offers the nation’s only packaging program housed in an engineering school. Unique from other engineering disciplines in its dynamic, the Packaging Engineering Concentration under Applied Sciences Engineering prepares engineering students by drawing heavily from each of the chemical, industrial, materials and mechanical engineering fields. It requires a strong background in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and computers.
The missions of the Packaging Engineering Program are to seek, through engineering research, improved functions of the packaging design and provide sustainable service to the community, based on the results of the research and educational effort conducted at Rutgers University.
This discipline ensures students will have strong grounding issues of covering a broad area of expertise from design conceptualization all the way to product deployment. These broad areas of expertise can be applied in many different industrial fields: the pharmaceutical industry, the food industry, the cosmetic industry and the industry for medical devices among many others.
