The Professorship Print Media Technology [pmTUC]

„In a constantly evolving world, it is the media technologies in particular that decisively fuel change. Printing does not only look back on a long history but can also look forward to a promising future. New developments and possibilities, like the printing of electronics, expand the traditional range of applications considerably, thus strengthening the entire industry. Furthermore, competencies at the interface between the printing industry and electronic media become increasingly important.“
