Virginia Tech adds new degree in Packaging Systems and Design

April 23, 2014 – Students who enroll in Virginia Tech's newly approved packaging systems and design degree program don't spend four years just learning to think outside the box, they think about the box itself, as well as the entire packaging system.

“The new degree in packaging systems and design is crucially important because the growth of major packaging companies across the country depends upon a continuous supply of highly trained young packaging professionals,” said Laszlo Horvath, assistant professor of practice and director of Virginia Tech’s Center for Packaging and Unit Load Design.
