The research and development activities of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology are characterized by the diversity that also characterizes the academic teaching spectrum of the university.

Application-oriented research and an active knowledge and technology transfer are mandatory for updating the teaching in terms of modern, rapid scientific and technological progress. For our students, these activities are therefore essential in terms of quality of education. At the same time, successful collaberation of the university with the free economy in externally funded research projects, reflects the handling of application-oriented challenges, especially in medium-sized industries.

Research at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology is practical, professional and is focused on specific career fields and challenges in the professional world.
