German-Chinese Course of Studies in Printing Technology

Homepage: http://www.hdm-stuttgart.de/dc/

The German-Chinese double degree programme in Print and Media Technology is internationally unique: the engineering-based degree is taught partly at Stuttgart Media University and partly at the Technical University in X’ian (TUX). It is completed after seven semesters (valid from May 2011) with a double qualification from both universities. Applicants do not require knowledge of Chinese.

Contents and Structure

The future print and media experts who study on the German-Chinese degree programme learn about production processes such as offset, gravure, flexographic, screen and digital printing, as well as the technologies used in prepress. In the first semester they acquire the theoretical basics and everyday and specialist Chinese to be ready for the subsequent study semesters in the host country.

In Stuttgart, the students acquire basic scientific knowledge in physics, mathematics and information technology and study subjects concerned with printing technology and management. In project work, they can put their knowledge into practice with the help of the University’s extensive, state-of-the-art technical equipment. In China they undertake one practical semester in a media company and one semester at the Technical University Xi’an. Here, the German students attend the same lectures as their Chinese fellow students. Back in Stuttgart, they write their Bachelor’s thesis in their last semester.

Perspectives in Germany and China

Graduates can expect excellent professional perspectives: the extensive economic relations between Germany and China ensure that the need for technically qualified engineers and managers with experience in China, knowledge of the Chinese language and the industries of both countries is constantly growing.

An alternative to starting work immediately is to enrol for the consecutive, four-semester Master’s degree programme which is similarly taught at the Chinese partner university and the University of Media.


The degree programme starts in the summer semester only. There are eleven student places.
