Packaging Career Fair

The annual Packaging Science Career Fair brings together students from the packaging science program and industry professionals.

The fair is designed to offer employers and students a forum to meet and discuss the packaging field and career opportunities. Employers have the opportunity to present their company and meet students in the packaging science program who are looking for co-op and full-time job opportunities. Students are able to network with companies and learn about co-op and full-time opportunities. This event draws about 25 companies and 115 packaging students to the fair each year.
