Try to pass all the exams the first time. Repeating courses creates timetable confusions and unnecessary delays. But this requires concentrated and continuous preparatory work.

Attend all lectures and listen carefully. Try to understand everything and ask questions. You should not learn by heart, but understand the content. Show great enthusiasm in the practical labs

Know the areas with the largest potential for growth: Packaging Printing, Functional Printing, 3D-Printing, Digital Printing. Whereas all the other areas are very interesting, too and also reveal great career opportunities.
