As part of the UW-Platteville Department of Industrial Studies, the plastics processing technology minor explores the properties of various plastic materials, how plastic parts are manufactured, and the design of molds required to produce plastic parts. You’ll gain hands-on experience through our labs and interactive classes, as well as our award-winning student groups and internship/apprenticeship program. This background will prepare you for careers as a production supervisor, production assistant, and more.

This minor is only available for students in the Industrial Technology Management program’s emphasis in Manufacturing Technology Management.
