Introduction

Desktop publishing refers to the design and production of publications using personal computers with graphics capability. Desktop Publishers create a number of materials, such as brochures, magazines, newspapers, and books with the help of computer software programs. They are responsible for the entire implementation and design process from start to finish. Employers of DTP operators include printing, publishing, graphic design and advertising companies.

Why take admission?

Most Desktop publishers work in the publishing and printing industries. Others have jobs in in-house printing departments of advertising and public relations firms. Those who are more artistic and who have furthered their education may find opportunities in graphic design or commercial art.

Academic Approach

The Academic Approach of the course focuses on the “work centric” education i.e. begin with work (and not from a book !), derive knowledge from work and apply that knowledge to make the work more wholesome, useful and delightful.
