MUAS - Munich

University of applied sciences Munich - MUAS

The print and media industry has been undergoing rapid change for years. Digitization, automation and networking are optimizing production, distribution and business processes - the Internet and mobile devices are creating a host of new applications and media channels, which in turn are taking over and expanding many functions that were previously performed by print media.
At the same time, print processes are continuing to develop in many application areas that are not affected by the structural competition with Internet-based media. Whether it is a master's degree in print media, technology and management (PTM) or a bachelor's degree in print and media technology (DMT) - we will train you in the key qualifications of the future.
From media informatics to digital printing, print finishing to electronic printing or 3D printing, from „design thinking“ to cross-media applications to the development of new business processes: In our degree programs, we bring together printing processes, new media, business administration, marketing and design.
With our experienced lecturers, who are well networked in the industry, we impart engineering and business management skills.
And we do this in direct exchange with students in a very personal learning and working atmosphere.
For the practice. Our degree programs are based on the state of the art and current industrial and economic requirements and trends.
Our students receive practical training in cooperation with industry, consulting companies and research institutes.
