The M.Sc degree programme in Packaging Technology was started in autumn 2006. The programme is directed towards persons with a B.Sc degree in areas related to Packaging Technology. Students entering the programme have had background fields such as forestry, paper technology, chemistry, food technology, business administration etc. The programme has been tailormade for students working in industry. This means that contact learning takes place during 9-10 intensive weeks per academic year. The intensive weeks are arranged for the major subject of Packaging Technology. Minor subjects can be selected rather freely from the topics offered at Lappeenranta University of Technology. Organising the PT-programme for full-time working adult students is a challenging task as it is an international programme with both domestic and foreign students with different educational backgrounds. The purpose of this work is to provide both student and lecturer feedback for improving the programme to better meet the requirements of part-time studying.
