AIP Scholarship Winner Graduates with Certificate in Packaging

Andrew U’Ren, an Australian Institute of Packaging Scholarship winner through the Southern Cross Awards program in 2011, has graduated from the Certificate in Packaging.

Andrew was awarded an AIP Scholarship to undertake the Certificate in Packaging as a part of the Southern Cross Packaging Awards program.

“As a graphic design student the opportunities of the Certificate in Packaging allowed me to expand on my knowledge of packaging in specific areas of interest, he said. “Being an on-line based course presented challenges that can often thwart a students learning experience, whilst staying focused, but the AIP provided me with fantastic mentors from the packaging industry who not only provided me with a wealth of information but who also helped me stay positive and active.”

Andrew said learning new and unknown material on-line is very different to learning in a classroom with a lecturer.

Last year he successfully completed the course through various site visits to factories that manufacture packaging materials. He kept in contact with AIP mentors through email and Skype, sourcing packaging text books courtesy of the AIP.

He was able to ask questions and have his work proof read by industry personnel.

The Certificate in Packaging provides students with the chance to broaden their interests in new areas of packaging.

“Currently I am using my Certificate in Packaging along with my Degree in graphic design to seek employment in the packaging industry where I hope to liaise graphic design with pack function,” Andrew said.
