Certificate studies

This offer is also available via distance education (online). Click here for details.

Packaging and brewery engineering play a major role in any growing brewery, so brewers need a sound understanding about the principles involved in this complex area of brewing science. Our WBA Packaging and Process Technology module deals with processing and packaging of finished beer, as well as important engineering and “physical properties” issues.

The packaging course segments include the most recent developments in alternative materials (such as plastic bottles) and super-high-speed bottling systems. Engineering and process instruction includes topics such as properties of metals and other materials, fluid and pump dynamics, and other areas critical to improving brewery performance.
