Purdue University Northwest’s College of Technology recently was awarded the 2020 Future Leaders in Packaging Scholarship from PMMI – The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.
The scholarship was established in 2011 in conjunction with Packaging World’s Leaders in Packaging program. This annual marketing program allows suppliers to promote their innovation and expertise to the packaging community.
“We are grateful to PMMI for their continued support of PNW’s bachelor of science in Mechatronics Engineering Technology program,” said Niaz Latif, dean of the PNW College of Technology. “The scholarship money will be used to support students in the Mechatronics program (and) five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to full-time students that will be merit-based and can be used for all educational expenses, not just tuition.”
The scholarship is awarded each year to an educational institution that prepares students for careers in packaging. The recipient school selects one or more students pursuing related degrees and distributes the funds to the student to defray tuition and other education-related expenses.
Purdue Northwest’s College of Technology offers technology programs that are among the country’s largest. Major national and international companies, including Morrison Container Handling Solutions, United Healthcare Group, Ford Motor Company and many more, employ the college’s alumni.
PNW is a PMMI educational partner school and has collaborated with the association on workforce development and education curriculum issues.
