Students who complete this program have an opportunity to attend an international expo in either Chicago or Las Vegas. The student packaging club, Institute of Packaging Professionals (IOPP), is active in planning and participating in expos and other special events.
WITC is fortunate to have sponsors for these expos who assist in covering some of the cost for students to attend. Expos provide a great networking opportunity for students to talk with packaging companies on a wide range of topics including potential job openings.
Since many of the companies are internationally represented, graduates may anticipate potential employment overseas. International Expos provide opportunities for both students and faculty to remain current in their knowledge and skills. Both instructors, Kevin Lipsky and Joe Krear, are passionate about the program and committed to providing the best qualified graduates possible.
