packaging is an inter-disciplinary subject, the stsemester includes exposure to subjects like Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Packaging technology is then introduced with detail and elaborate coverage on various packaging media, which includes paper and paperboard, glass, metals, plastics and composites. Similarly, laboratory practical training and visitto packaging converters and user industries aremadepartofthe curriculum to expose students to the practical aspects of the subject. In an organisation, since a packaging professional plays a vital role, management subjects such as Production Planning and Control, Total Quality Management, Industrial Engineering, Materials Management, Marketing and Financial Management are also covered. The post graduate diploma course commenced in 1985 and the curriculum isregularly reviewed with addition of new subjects. Some of the subjects recently included are Eco-Regulation, Computer Aided Design & Mould Design and Communication Skills, which now form a part of the syllabus. We have a separate computer laboratory for Post Graduate Diploma students equipped with necessary software for their training and use. Experienced and dedicated faculty trains the students in CAD. We have been conducting a three months certificate course since 1968. The course is accredited by Asian Packaging Federation of which IIP is the founder member and endorsed by World Packaging Organisation. The course is open to overseas participants as well. Both these courses being full time, a need was felt to introduce a Distance Education Course especially for working people who cannot attend the full time programme. In 1996, we started the Distance Education Course for many aspirants who are working in the industry and could not attend our full time courses to improve their professional qualification.
