Young Academics Present Themselves and Their Own Campus

Universities of Print and Media Technology act jointly at the DRUPA 2008.

Düsseldorf, Germany – At a joint stand the five universities of Print and Media Technology in Germany will present themselves from May 29 until June 11, 2008 at the DRUPA 2008 Print and Media Fair in Düsseldorf. The fairgoers can obtain more information about the study-program opportunities and the competencies of the universities concerned at the stand designated as 7aE02. An old saying goes: “When the wind of change blows, build windmills, not windbreaks” In a figurative sense windmills are produced at those locations in Germany where research is conducted: namely at universities. They foster forward-looking thinking, which is becoming increasingly relevant in the print-and-media industry. For this reason it is that the five German universities for Print and Media Technology are present at the DRUPA 2008. Starting on May 29, 2008, Technische Fachhochschule Berlin, Hochschule München, Hochschule für Technik, Wirtschaft und Kultur Leipzig, Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart and Bergische Universität Wuppertal, will present themselves and their range of course offerings conjointly at the stand designated as 7aE02 under the heading “Campus of Print and Media Technology”. The individual study opportunities of each of the universities in the fields of print and media technology will be presented to fairgoers in five different lecture rooms. What academic programs are offered? What variety of projects do students participate in? What are the future prospects for graduates? Students of these academic programs will answer these and other questions at their mutual stand. Secondary-school students, apprentices, qualified workers in this field with interest in further education and students of other universities will be just as welcome as companies on the lookout for future qualified managers and personnel. Moreover, visitors can inform themselves about the expertise of the participating universities in the field of print and media through presentations that vary daily at the Print Forum of the neighboring stand of The German Printing and Media Industries Federation. In cooperation with the five universities, diverse topics of the printing industry will be addressed, for example success strategies in companies, inline finishing, and ecological design. Besides the lectures and personal dialogs with the students, numerous exhibits from study and research projects are on display at the stand.
