Paper Engineering

  Dr. Raja Aravamuthan
Professor and,
Undergraduate Academic Advisor

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!
