“I am Bhargav Thesiya from India. I chose Print Media Technologies because the packaging print-ing industry is rapidly growing, not only in India, but also in the whole world. This study program is perfect for me since it is taught in English and it is international. It has different course modules which include digital printing, flexography, gravure printing and many more.
Above all, flexography is the course in which I am particularly interested. Moreover, flexographic printing is considered as one of the biggest markets in the packaging industry. It is employed for print-ing on flexible substrates, paper and cardboard with the most common usage being in packaging.
In Hochschule der Medien, we have a large technology centre, where we observe the machines running and understand how they work. For flexographic printing, we use a 6S-8 flexo press from the company Fischer & Krecke. It belongs to the DFTA, the so called “German Flexographic Technical Association” and it is primarily used for research and development.
Talking about choosing the right country for stud-ying, the first choice for me was always Germany because of its geographical location and culture. It is located in the heart of Europe which makes this country special. The people, language, and strong traditions are the reasons why German culture is so interesting for me. As a matter of fact, Germany is known as the country of poets and thinkers back home. The German culture has been influenced and shaped throughout Germany‘s rich history, since the country has had a key role in the history of Europe.”
