The Department of Packaging Technology, a unit of the Faculty of Agro-Industry at Kasetsart University, was established in 1980. The Department offers B.S. and M.S. degrees in Packaging Technology. The primary objectives of the Department are to educate students with fundamental aspects of packaging, conduct research in various areas of packaging technology, provide testing services, and serve the community with its extension programs. Research areas of the Department cover a wide range of specialties based on diverse backgrounds of faculty members. Current research areas include active packaging, biopolymer packaging materials, food packaging, packaging process and machinery, distribution packaging, package design, development, and management, and package printing. Biodegradable cassava-based package is one of the successful products by our faculty member. It was awarded a High Potential in EU Market Prize in Brussels Eureka 2000. The Department has participated in various international activities including student exchange and visiting scholar programs at other universities in Asia, Europe, and the United States. The internship program is a part of an undergraduate curriculum to provide our students with industrial experiences in packaging fields.
