World Brewing Academy

Module 3: WBA Packaging and Process Technology

Advanced level Certificate Studies WBA Individual Module
With the WBA Packaging and Process Technology individual module you will obtain solid knowledge of the fundamentals involved in this complex area of brewing.
Siebel Institute Doemens

Description

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.

The WBA Packaging and Process Technology module can be taken individually, or as part of the Advanced Brewing Technology, International Diploma, or Master Brewer programs. It is offered online and on-campus, both with distinctive advantages. The on-campus option will allow students to participate in vibrant classroom discussions and develop close networks with fellow students. The online option, on the other hand, allows students to advance through the module at their own pace, from the comfort of their office or home, without the need to travel.

If the online option is selected, throughout the duration of the module students are supervised by the instructional staff of the World Brewing Academy, drawing on the talents of some of the most knowledgeable scientists, technologists and brewmasters in the industry. Student progress is actively monitored throughout the program, and students can access instructors via email and chat sessions throughout the duration of the module. The average time spent studying is normally 7-10 hours per week but depends on the individual as well.
