Description

Graphic and Print Technician introduces students to the total printing production process from design and pre-press, through to printing and post press finishing operations. The program prepares students for the broad range of employment opportunities available in the design and printing industry.

Specializations

A graduate of the Graphic and Print Technician program who applies to the Graphic Design program at Red River College (RRC), and meets all RRC program entrance requirements in addition to completing the program’s Portfolio Presentation Workshop, will be offered an interview with the Graphic Design Selection Committee. This interview however does not guarantee acceptance into the program. When a MITT Graphic and Print Technician graduate is accepted into the RRC Graphic Design program they will be granted credit for Course GRAD-1126 Production (Semester 1, Year 1).

Work Practicum

The unpaid Work Practicum normally takes place during the month following the last course of study.  A Work Practicum will be available to students that have met the employability skills outcomes of the program. Students with overall achievement below 70% or that have issues which could limit their internship placement will be offered real-world projects within the classroom environment in place of a Work Practicum.

MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
