Packaging Science and Engineering

Academic and research training in the area of packaging science and engineering for master's candidates is available at Rutgers in the following programs of the Graduate School-New Brunswick: food science, industrial and systems engineering, materials science and engineering, and pharmaceutical science.

Degree requirements are set in accordance with the student's graduate program. The student electing this option enrolls in an interdisciplinary program that includes core courses in business, science, and engineering and a concentration in one of the six participating disciplines. Coordination among the faculties sponsoring the packaging option provides maximum flexibility and variety in the arrangement of individual degree programs.

For a master of science degree, a student must be admitted to, and meet the requirements of, one of the following programs of the Graduate School-New Brunswick: food science, industrial and systems engineering, materials science and engineering, or pharmaceutical science. This program requires a minimum of 18 credits involving courses in the degree program unrelated to packaging. The student also must meet the following common core requirements: the courses in packaging engineering, 16:635:571,572; the seminars in packaging, 16:635:581,582;the materials and design in packaging courses, 16:635:577,578; and either the special problems in packaging courses, 16:635:587,588, or the research thesis on packaging as approached through the departmental specialization.

The interaction of packaging and the environment is a broad subject of common concern underlying all programs that feature the option in packaging. Within this area, students are expected initially to indicate which one of the following three concentrations they wish to explore: packaging science and technology, packaging and production engineering, or packaging and marketing/management. For further information, the interested student should contact the director of one of the above programs or Professor Stanley Dunn, School of Engineering, Busch Campus, or 732-445-4462.
