Printing is a major related to engineering. Printing requires students to master the basic theory and basic knowledge of visual reproduction of information, color image and word processing, plate making and modern printing technology.
Printing courses include digital image processing, color information management, digital media, print media planning and design, and digital publishing. Printing students need to be familiar with the use of computers for printing, such as digital graphics processing technology, plate making and printing process design, equipment and material selection, printing material suitability testing, print quality testing and control. They should have the ability to solve printing engineering and related technical problems. They also need to understand the trends in printing and processing technology and printing enterprise management techniques.
3D printing technology emerged in the mid-1990s and is actually the latest rapid prototyping device using technologies such as photocuring and paper lamination. It works basically the same as normal printing, but there are many different techniques for 3D printing. They differ in that they are created in the same way as the available materials and in different layers. 3D printing provides new opportunities for the development of the printing industry, and also gives printing degrees more advantages in the job market.
The entire printing market is growing rapidly, and more and more printing companies are involved in this industry. A large number of printing plants and business people are constantly emerging. The entire printing industry consists of a printing house and business people, both of which are independent groups. Printing graduates can engage in process design, production implementation, organization management and scientific research in various printing companies and research institutes.
