The MS program in packaging science is designed to meet the needs of both professionals who have been employed in the field and for students who wish to pursue a graduate program immediately upon earning a BS degree.

Although an undergraduate curriculum in packaging science is preferred as preparation for the MS program, graduates from certain other disciplines can successfully pursue the program if certain introductory packaging science courses are coupled with appropriate work experience.

Admission requirements

Admission to the MS degree in packaging science requires:

a 3.0 (B) grade point average in their final two years of undergraduate degree work. Two letters of recommendation. Students who have insufficient academic or practical preparation to study packaging at the graduate level will complete an appropriate program to correct such deficiencies. The following undergraduate courses are generally suggested: Packaging Materials (0607-502), Container Systems (0607-503), and Concepts to Consumer (0607-504). These courses may not be used for credit toward the MS degree. A basic competence in statistics and computer literacy will be assumed. Applicants for graduate study may satisfy these requirements by completing Fundamentals of Statistics I (0307-711) or its equivalent, and completing a course in computer applications. Applicants lacking this background will be required to take Fundamentals of Statistics I (0307-711) and/or Computer Applications (0607-341), or equivalent course work, to establish a foundation of competency. Graduate Record Exam scores are not required. However, in cases where there may be some question of the capability of an applicant to complete this program applicants... [-]

SCI-Arc
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 USA Los Angeles

The Master of Science in Architectural Technologies is a one-year program that provides hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies of architectural production as well as a robust conceptual and critical framework. [+]

The Master of Science in Architectural Technologies is a one-year program that provides hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies of architectural production as well as a robust conceptual and critical framework. Technologies come and go, but the general problem of technology and what we do with it as architects is perpetual. We cannot simply accept technologies as given to us from on high; as architects in the twenty-first century we must master existing technologies, develop new ones, and entirely rethink them in order to produce radical architectural effects. Students acquire expertise in the realms of robotic fabrication, computational methods of form generation, additive manufacturing, and machine vision. In anticipation of future technologies that we haven’t yet seen and perhaps have yet to even imagine, the program also develops a robust conceptual and critical framework for understanding technology’s long-standing relationship to architecture in general. As Cedric Price asked back in 1966: “Technology is the answer, but what was the question?” The program requires attendance in the fall, spring, and summer terms. [-]
