ICPF Assists Universities in Distance Teaching During Pandemic Restrictions

Throughout this past March and April, and into May, the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) has been assisting 27 partner universities in transitioning to remote teaching utilizing ICPF’s online corrugated curricula.  Additionally, through the support of packaging design software manufacturers Arden and Esko, ICPF also is working with faculty to explore and potentially configure systems to allow students remote access to their university’s centralized packaging design software from home. Students normally access the software through the utilization of one of the university computers within the bank desk tops that are located in each campus’s design lab. 

The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) mission is to generate a stream of increasingly qualified students to enter the corrugated packaging and displays industry.  ICPF is dedicated to the creation and building of partnerships within the education community, provides curricula, equipment and other resources to advance corrugated curricula, works to expand student internships within the industry, and promotes corrugated packaging & display career opportunities for packaging engineering, graphic design, structural design, business, marketing & sales, supply chain management, mechanical & chemical engineering, industrial engineering & design, tech and related graduates.
