The Graduate Certificate in Packaging Engineering was designed for the engineer, scientist or technologist who must develop and produce packages that contain, protect and preserve, transport, inform, and sell a product. The Certificate includes the study of products, packages, materials, containers, structures, methods, machinery, and transportation.
Packaging activities at CBU are supported by various labs in the recently extensively-renovated Saint Benilde Hall as well as the Nolan Engineering Center. CBU Packaging Lab is certified by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA).
All course requirements can be completed on-line, live (usually between 5:30 and 8:15 p.m. for 15 weeks) or a combination of the two. Those attending live at the Memphis campus will be provided dinner from our cafeteria as part of the tuition fee. Additionally all students will be provided the course textbook either hardcopy or electronic format (when available), as part of the tuition fee. All classes are captured on our media servers so if you cannot make it to a particular live lecture because of work or family obligations, you can watch a video recording later.
All classes can be applied toward the MSEM Program upon successful completion.
