In recent times the country has seen rapid changes taking place in the printing industry. From humble hand composing to photo type setting. From lithography to sophisticated four colour web offset printing machines with drier and chiller facilities running at high speeds. These changes have made it possible for printing jobs to be done in one fourth time compared to earlier requirements to do the same job.
Colour separation jobs which four hours earlier;, can now be done in just fifteen minutes time through colour scanners. Similarly computerization has, become an integral part of printing today.
The sophistication attached to these developments has called for people of highest calibre to operate the state-of-the-art machines that are being installed in printing presses in the country.
This necessitated formal education and training to the printing personnel to produce printing jobs of international standards and to keep in tune with changing times. Thus was born the Manipal Institute of Printing Technology. MIPT offers a degree course & three semester certificate course and a six semester diploma course in printing.
