What Does a Packaging Engineer Do?

With a master’s degree you can even aspire to a leading position, mostly in management, in production, sales or in the international market.

The bachelor contains two parts, the basic studies and the advanced part with a focus. The basic is quite the same at all universities and consists mainly of scientific and economic content. The focus part is more detailed and deals with aspects like production process, sustainability, management, distribution or marketing.

The master is for all, who want to get even more specialised skills and especially for those, who aim for a leading position. The focus here is on strategic aspects that are important for management, development and production, and therefor essential for leaders.
