Digital Printing & Flexography
A.A.S. Program Fact Sheet/Courses (pdf file) | e-mail program
The Digital Printing & Flexography program prepares graduates for positions in flexography, the dominant technology for printing flexible packaging materials used in the food, health and other industries, and digital printing, which is widely used for short run commercial printing as well as large format printing. Dunwoody’s program is nationally recognized for producing graduates who are well-equipped to enter and succeed in the packaging and digital printing industries. Graduates generally work as flexographic press operators, ink technicians, plate specialists, quality control personnel, equipment and consumables salespeople or digital print technicians. Students learn in a hands-on, real-world setting featuring industry-leading technologies and equipment and use those tools and experience to produce professional-quality projects for their portfolio. Topics covered include flexography (including press operation), color theory and color management, binding and finishing, digital printing, quality control and job estimating. Arts & Sciences curriculum supports both the students’ technical direction and enhances their oral and written communication skills, computer literacy, fundamental math skills and critical thinking ability. The course of study culminates in an industry internship or capstone project where the students gain on-the-job experience.
Graduates earn an A.A.S. degree and the program takes two years (four semesters) to complete.
