Instead of a lecture type of teaching, this course is more about interaction, learning by doing, making mistakes and succeeding, alone and together. As a member of a group, the student learns to design a packaging entity. During the course, the student designs a primary packaging ( a bottle) and a secondary packaging (a corrugated or a carton box based on standards). The student will learn the basics of the packaging process through practical exercises. The teaching is based on contact hours and guidance of the small groups/ student pairs. The student is required to have an open mind and skills for working in a multidisciplinary group as well as a hands-on attitude.

Previous software knowledge is not a must but is an advantage. Please note that this is not a software course. Also, 3D design software can be used, such as Rhinoceros independently if the students have previous 3D modeling skills. The groups/pairs are aimed to be multidisciplinary so that the students can support and complement the skills of each other.
