Plastics are everywhere. That means a B.S. in Plastics Engineering Technology will put you in demand in nearly any industry sector that interests you: automotive, aerospace, electronics, medical, consumer products, computers—even toys!
Why Penn State Behrend?
Behrend’s B.S. in Plastics Engineering Technology is one of just a handful of accredited programs in the nation. You’ll get valuable hands-on experience using processing equipment, raw plastic materials, and lab testing equipment in our plastics processing lab, the largest undergraduate educational facility of its type in the country.
You’ll also conduct research with award-winning faculty, apply engineering concepts to personalized projects, and have the opportunity to work directly on a real-world industry project. And all of your engineering courses will be taught by faculty members, not graduate assistants. Small class sizes and a faculty open-door policy mean that when you need help, you’ll get it.
