In the beginning students got lectures in basics like journalistic presentation or media production image and sound. This knowledge will be deepened within the following years and applied in certain projects. Students can practise journalistic skills in the university´s TV and radio studio, the online magazine "technikjournal.de" or in the university newspaper "doppelpunkt:".
