You'll be learning with technologically-advanced methods and tools and, you'll be taught by the finest professors and faculty that WMU has to offer. When you get your first job offers, you'll be able to 'hit the ground running! That's why corporations feel confident hiring WMU PCI graduates!

Throughout the last fifty years, our graduates have always successfully placed with some of the highest starting salaries in the limitless and cutting-edge fields of engineering. All our students participate in hands-on summer internship and co-op experiences with the paper, chemical and printing industries.   Industry depends on us to fill their positions with our students.

The department offers B.S. degrees in Paper Engineering, Paper Science, Chemical Engineering, and Imaging. M.S. and PhD degrees are offered in Paper and Imaging Science and Engineering.
