Welcome! I am looking forward to hearing
from you regarding your interest in our Paper Engineering program.
Paper Engineers are finding jobs in all of the most exciting technological
and scientific industries. New developments in the ways trees are
grown, harvested and processed and emerging projects like biofuels
and biopolymers are creating opportunities in virtually every area
of engineering and manufacturing. The paper industry is a key component
in many businesses and touches many aspects of our lives. Career options
include process engineering, technical services, pollution prevention,
research and development, marketing and sales, manufacturing and much
more. WMU provides leading-edge oportunities in the applications of
nanotechnology, printing and ink development methods, recycling, paper
mill operation control engineering, process control and instrumentation,
printing, and chemical manufacturing. Paid summer internships and
co-op programs give you practical hands-on experience. This means
you'll be ready for your first job when you graduate from our program.
Jobs are waiting for our students upon graduation. We boast 100% job
placement upon graduation from our program, with average annual starting
salaries in excess of $70,000! A merit
scholarship program, under the direction of The Paper
Technology Foundation (PTF), can help you with your college expenses.
I look forward to welcoming you soon to the Paper Engineering program at WMU!
