MIAMISBURG, Ohio—As part of its ongoing commitment to fostering education in the packaging industry, EskoArtwork has donated a CDI Spark 2530 imager to The Harper Center of Graphics Technologies at Dunwoody College of Technology. This latest donation adds to the multiple seats of EskoArtwork packaging design and prepress software already in place at the Minneapolis-based school.
Dunwoody College of Technology offers a two-year graphics communications program divided into three tracks: design, premedia and press. Class sizes are kept small, and students get heavy doses of real-world experience, digging deep into applications and press operations.
The formula is working: graduates hit the streets well-versed in today’s technology, giving Dunwoody a very successful placement record with local industry. Just recently, for example, six students armed with ArtiosCAD experience obtained jobs involving structural design.
Plus, for the second year in a row and the third time in four years, Dunwoody’s team took first place in the Phoenix College Challenge, an annual product design and printing competition for colleges held during the Flexographic Technical Association’s Annual Forum and Info*Flex event. This year’s event, with 30 colleges participating, was held April 30, 2011, in Indianapolis.
