Packaging Technology and Development

Packaging Technology and Development (MTTN40) is an interdisciplinary 7.5 credit course that deals with the subject from consumer, product and environmental perspectives.

The aim of the course is to carry out a packaging development project with a related industry in peer groups of students from different programmes at LTH.

The project helps you understand how to work in package development projects. You become aware of the different issues that have to be considered, such as user perspectives, the influence packaging has on product protection, the environment and marketing issues. We work with packaging prototypes and posters to explain the project ideas and results.

Lectures and company visits provide a basic platform for packaging knowledge. The lectures are held either by faculty or guest lecturers from the related industry.

After completing the course, the student shall be able to:

  • Develop a packaging system based on user needs, product requirements and sustainability aspects.
  • Understand the development process for integrated product and packaging development.
  • Identify the features of the most important packaging materials.
