Packaging is present in all industrial manufacturing sectors, and is founded upon three basic disciplines: Biology, for product/packaging interaction, chemistry, for materials, and physics/mechanics, for packaging structure. Our students come from all scientific disciplines and have a wide range of qualifications: undergraduate degrees (Foundation, Bachelor), University Diploma, engineering schools, and more.

Selection of prospective students takes place twice a year, in mid-March and towards the end of May.  Candidate must have successfully completed 2 years of university studies in order to be admitted to the Bachelor’s degree (Licence) and 3 years for entry to the Master’s.  Tests and interviews are carried out to see if students’ profiles (and not their knowledge) match up to the expectations of the packaging industry.
