Students in Ben Dolezal’s Packaging and 3-D CAD (computer-aided design) class are on the cutting edge of design technology. The course, which uses the University’s new Corrugated Prototype Design and CAD Production Lab, teaches how to solve real-world packaging issues. Each semester, students work individually and in teams to design and construct items such as a retail floor display stand, a food and beverage shipper, and a retail shelf display. “I chose these assignments because the dimensional product and packaging solutions explore the relationship between conceptual thinking, structural design, brand development, and consumer behavior,” explains Dolezal, an assistant professor of visual communication. In addition to instruction from local packaging professionals, the class features guest lectures, panel discussions, and facility tours. “By offering a partnership between industry and education, the course allows students to engage in meaningful discussions and prepare for full-time employment upon graduation.”
