Overview

The Packaging Engineering Technician program provides training in the structural design of packaging materials. Students will learn to design and evaluate packaging utilizing different materials: metal, glass, plastic, paper, and corrugated. Critical in the design of any packaging are product protection (safety and security), durability, the ability to recycle materials, and sustainability opportunities and issues. The delivery of the program includes approximately 10% online courses.

Applying to the Co-op Stream

The optional co-op stream includes one co-op work term.

Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.

The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.

Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply for the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.

To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students are required to achieve a minimum 70% session weighted average and no failed or dropped courses in Level 1.

Career opportunities

Graduates may find jobs such as packaging technician, packaging coordinator, package development specialist or packaging designer, with companies that supply packaging materials to any sector of the manufacturing industry. Larger manufacturers (e.g., food processors, pharmaceutical) are also potential employers.
