Course

The course was born from the collaboration with DELES Academy and Leonardo Cascitelli to integrate technical skills on packaging and the integrated design vision between product, value and process.

In a globalized world, in which the transfer of products destined for consumers through the logistics chains of large-scale distribution is increasingly frequent, the issue of packaging is becoming increasingly important, which becomes crucial when environmental and environmental issues also enter the scene of eco-sustainability.

Within this constantly evolving scenario, the Packaging Engineering & Design course, in collaboration with Deles Academy, aims to provide all the knowledge necessary for the design of Packaging, a subject that crosses countless areas. During the course, skills related to different subjects will be provided, which in addition to the main packaging materials, concern the design process, logistics and correlations with packaging, the criteria for the evaluation of packaging supplies and main end-of-line and anti-counterfeiting automation systems.

Frequency

Number of hours: 120 hours

Weekly commitment: 10 hours a week (6 hours on Friday and 4 hours on Saturday)

To allow attendance also to people who already work, we opted for the formula that provides lessons and activities on Friday and Saturday for the theoretical training period while for the project work period the commitment required will be full time from Monday to Friday.

Training objectives

The course is aimed at training professionals with specific skills in the field of design, executive project and engineering for the packaging sector, directing students to creativity, providing them with solid theoretical foundations combined with the study of real cases able to also develop operational capabilities.

The main topics that will be explored during the course are:

  • Packaging materials;
  • Logistic processes and their correlation with the development of packaging;
  • Methodology and criteria for packaging design;
  • Tools and criteria for assessing packaging needs.
