Paper International Experience – Spain Bound!

Spain Here We Come

May 2019 will take our rising juniors and seniors to Spain, experiencing Madrid,  Barcelona, San Sebastian and Bilbao.  This will be our seventh Paper International Experience (PIE), with other destinations including China, Chile, Brazil and Finland.

The Paper International Experience (PIE) program allows students in PSE to develop as well-rounded professionals ready to make significant contributions to industry, their community, and their world.

Goals of PIE

On this biennial trip, students are immersed for 10 days in a different culture. During the most recent trips to China and Finland, students were able to see, up close, amazing pulp and paper manufacturing operations, research centers, supplier facilities (fabrics, automation and pilot machines) and more. They also interacted with students at universities with paper and biomaterials related degree programs.

Participants become more aware of the global community, and experience things they never have before. They understand their own pulp and paper industry better, in the context of the global market. They are better thinkers…better learners….and (we think) better engineers for having done this.

And that is EXACTLY the goal of the Paper International Experience! Enjoy our experiences on our PIE 2017 trip to China.
