paper science & engineering… Is a challenging academic program Has a positive impact on society Opens doors to many different career options
paper is highly engineered.
for the math and science lovers. Skilled engineers are required to manage the manufacturing processes, solve the technical problems, and design paper products The PSE curriculum integrates the disciplines of engineering, chemistry, mathematics, and physics to develop the problem solving skills of the paper industry professional
it adds up… = a great career A well-recognized and accredited engineering degree An industry-supported niche program, well known and respected in a major global industry Miami’s brand of leadership and liberal arts education ++
you’re an individual, not a number. Small class sizes provide excellent student to faculty ratio Student-led tutoring program available to help with difficult courses A teaching focus with outgoing and energetic faculty helps you learn and succeed Undergraduate research opportunities available
Classroom lessons applied in hands-on labs and experiments, including pilot paper machine trials Research programs where students have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on research projects Opportunities for highly paid co-op assignments and internships where the students demonstrate the skills learned, and experience the type of work environment they will find upon graduation you get hands-on learning experiences.
Miami’s program offers a high tech learning environment in the new Engineering building and laboratories, completed in 2008 Newly rebuilt papermachine system includes touch screen control panel programmed by students you get a high tech learning environment.
A dedicated PSE Foundation supports students with merit-based scholarships, relieving some of the tuition burden Gain global perspective through study or co-op abroad programs via partnerships with the Helsinki University of Technology and South China University of Technology; or study at Miami’s own European Luxembourg campus The Miami PSE program provides the rigor and training that leads to success in a broad array of fields designed to help you succeed after college.
you become part of a responsible, sustainable, and green industry. The forestry, paper and packaging industry is rated as the most sustainable industry The industry actively manages forestlands, renewing its raw material by planting 4-million trees each day on privately owned land These actively-managed plantations provide 91% of the trees harvested each year The industry leads the way in recycling, recovering over 65% of the paper produced in the US for re-use Environmental stewardship through the reclamation of wastewater, and through use of biomass as an energy source, is a hallmark of the paper industry
you become part of a significant industry. The paper industry is the 10th largest US industry, as measured by investment and research dollars More than 1,000,000 people are employed by the paper industry in the US The paper industry accounts for 6% of the US Gross National Product Sales of paper products in the US exceeds $200 billion dollars each year
you get a degree which provides career flexibility. Where are the recent PSE graduates? 3 are in graduate school Cornell, Georgia Tech, University of Louisiana-Lafayette 23 work within the paper industry 5 in Sales & Marketing positions 13 as Manufacturing Engineers 3 as Environmental Engineers 2 as Research & Development Engineers With companies like Domtar, International Paper, Georgia-Pacific, Nalco, Procter & Gamble, Sonoco, Verso, Voith, Ashland Chemical, and Kadant Black Clawson 6 are employed in other industries Rubber, Viniculture, Education, Marketing Research, Military, Government
where can you live? Recent Miami PSE graduates live across the United States in cities large and small Pulp or paper mill Recent Miami graduates Recent Miami PSE graduates live across the United States in cities large and small
what are your employment opportunities in the paper industry? The paper industry in the US is expected to have an employment growth of approximately 3,000 technical and engineering positions per year Industry demographics strongly suggest accelerated professional advancement for worthy candidates Average starting salary for Miami Paper Science and Engineering graduates has been over $64,000 since 2009, the highest for Miami graduates of any academic discipline; graduates averaged $67,000 Miami Paper Science and Engineering graduates seeking employment have experienced a 100% employment rate, even in difficult economic times
the bottom line. Why consider Miami’s Paper Science Curriculum? You get a well-recognized and accredited engineering degree with Miami’s brand of leadership and liberal arts education You get career opportunities in an industry which needs to fill approximately 10 technical and engineering positions for every paper engineering graduate You get the opportunity to live and work in the size of community that you desire
