The faculty European Campus Rottal-Inn is a semi-autonomous branch of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (abbreviated to DIT. In German the DIT is titled THD – Technische Hochschule Deggendorf, a university of applied sciences in Bavaria). ECRI was established in 2015 as a cross-disciplinary educational institution preparing multilingual, global graduates for international careers in applied healthcare and technical sciences. ECRI offers two full-time study programs in the field of Healthcare Information and Communication Technologies: Bachelor of Health Informatics, and Master of Medical Informatics, both taught in English, targeting not only local but primarily international students.
ECRI is located in the district centre Pfarrkirchen, in the region of Lower Bavaria (South-East of Germany). It is a charming touristic town, nestled among rolling, picturesque hills, close to the Austrian border and only one hour’s drive away from Deggendorf. Attractive cities nearby are Salzburg, Regensburg and Passau, and Munich is just a 90-minute drive away. The proximity to Austria and the Czech Republic puts the district in the heart of Europe. Pfarrkirchen has excellent school and education facilities, and offers many leisure activities. In the recent years Pfarrkirchen has become culturally renowned in the area due to its exceptional art exhibitions, museum nights and numerous festivals and events throughout the year. In the summer, the old town festival tempts thousands of visitors with its multicultural culinary and musical events.
The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) strives for academic excellence and ranks among the best universities of applied sciences in Germany. Founded in 1994, it is a young, modern and excellently equipped university offering relevant and practical courses set in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. DIT supports its students with many facilities, such as student clubs, a sports programme, an international office, career services and child care centre. It is the perfect environment for students to shape their futures and move forward into academic success.
Around 7,000 students study in a range of bachelor and master level courses held in English or German (nearly 730 of them – at ECRI), all of which are officially accredited by FIBAA and ASIIN according to international standards. DIT is committed to producing global graduates with international degrees: 165 partner universities around the world provide students with many opportunities to gain experience and earn credits towards their degree through foreign exchange semesters, internships and double-degree studies abroad. Additionally, great value is placed on German language training, which is tremendously beneficial for international students, helping them integrate easily into the Bavarian lifestyle.
The university focuses in three areas: firstly, full-time education; secondly, applied research & development; and thirdly, further education. Full-time education concentrates on the bachelor and master courses, whilst in applied research & development a vast range of research topics lead to practical scientific solutions that are used to develop new, marketable products, processes and services. In fact, many doctoral students are engaged in cooperative PhD programmes in this important field. Finally, further education is organized by the Deggendorf Institute for Further Education; its courses are geared towards students who work full-time whilst pursuing further education to advance their careers.
