ICPF Launches Corrugated
Curricula At Texas University
Over the past year, the International Corrugated
Packaging Foundation (ICPF) has been conducting
surveys and contacting colleges and universities in
Texas to potentially establish the state’s first higher
educational program offering corrugated curricula
and structural design instruction.After extensive dis-
cussion with ICPF corporate partners and work with
several universities, University Texas-Arlington was
identified as offering the best opportunity for an
ICPF educational partnership to develop qualified
graduates for the region’s corrugated industry.
The new packaging and design lab will be located
in UT Arlington’s Fine Arts Building and will integrate
new corrugated and structural curriculum into the
Visual Communication program in the Department
of Art and Art History.
The new program and lab are expected to launch
during the 2012-13 session with the installation of
ICPF’s online corrugated curricula, a DT3000 CAD
table donated by ICPF corporate partner Vanguard
Packaging, and 12 seats of the ArtiosCAD 3D Model-
ing Solution, along with ArtiosCAD Resizable Design
Tools, Basic Die-Making and ArtiosCAD Layout Tools,
donated through ICPF by Esko.
