Allgemeine Zugangsvoraussetzungen: 

The art of paper manufacturing is as old as our calendar.
Even in the age of the Internet, paper is by far the most
important information carrier, and it will remain so in the
future. These are good prospects for those who commit
themselves to the art of paper manufacturing.

New paper machines are bigger, more expensive and even
more complex than jumbo jets; they produce paper with
a speed at 100 km/h, with a paper width of up to 10 meters
and a thickness of only 0.1 mm. Such a machine produces
more paper in one minute than you would need to cover
two football grounds. The paper industry is making an
increasingly greater use of recycled paper as raw material.
World-wide, Germany is leading with a recycling rate of
over 60 %, and provides the paper industry all over the
world with the technology required to produce high-quality
newsprint paper from 100 % recycled fibres.

Students will acquire up-to-date knowledge in all relevant
areas of paper making and gain deep insight into all major
subjects of paper and board production. In addition they
may choose between a number of optional subjects according
to their personal preferences. Laboratories are well
equipped with the latest technology and teaching will take
part in small groups. Students will have the chance to produce
their own paper on the university paper machine and
run coating experiments at up to 2000 m/min. Lab work,
research project and master thesis offer unlimited space
for creativity.

The paper industry offers many opportunities in production,
research and development, as well as in the engineering
and supply industry. A Master of Paper Technology provides a wide range of possibilities including mill manager or member of the board of executives.
Those careers are not only reserved for men, as has been
proven by a number of very successful female students
in the past.
The paper industry is becoming increasingly global, thus
favouring our highly international study at the Munich University
of Applied Sciences .
