Wether in the display of a mobile phone, in the production of light, in the construction of sustainable houses, in environmental protection, in medicine, in the Internet... How does the world around us work and how can we shape it? STEM enlightens!
Our Prospective Student Advisors advise prospective students and applicants on all questions relating to studying and university life.
You will receive comprehensive, objective and confidential advice on the following topics:
With a lively lecture and two suitcases full of experiments, students at DIT will introduce pupils from 5th to 7th grade to the topic of bionics. Bionics - What are you looking for in nature to make it useful for humas? The school visit is carried out in cooperation with the Initiative Junger Forscherinnen und Forscher e.V. Würzburg. It is free of charge, designed for four school classes and designed for four teaching hours (plus assembly and disassembly before and after). Further information is available in this detailed report of the project.
Creative tinkering in a team - in short: "hacking" - is the focus of Make Your School. As part of the project, two to three-day hackdays are held at schools. Pupils think about how they can help shape their school and make it even better. With the help of technical and digital tools, and with the support of experts in computer science, design and mechanical engineering, they develop prototypes and present them to the press and the school public.
Join our students Jakob and Sepp in the electrical lab of the EMT Faculty!
They give you a 2h electrical taster day and a campus tour.
We offer customised school visit programs, individually adapted to the needs of your class. The duration of our school visits depends on the desired program content and can vary from the duration of a lecture block to the organisiation of an entire day at DIT.
Are you curious and have lots of questions? Are you between 6 and 12 years old? Then you've come to the right place: every school year we have exciting topics at the Kinderuni. As the children's university takes place in German, make sure to check out our German website for the next events and the programme.
100 schoolgirls, not only from schools in the region, but from all over Germany, took part in Girls'Day 2021 at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology!
This year, technicians and teachers from the university offered varied virtual workshops that gave the girls the opportunity to experience "STEM at first hand" despite the distance. DIT campus was also explored as part of a virtual campus tour. Two female students from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology were on hand with materials for the girls.

Girls' groups between 7th and 10th grade can spend a whole or half day at DIT within the framework of a Girls'Day Academy at their school. We offer exciting lectures, laboratory tours and experiments.
As part of our school support programme, students visit schools and provide school children with age-appropriate information about study and career orientation:
Our students give lectures and take part in school information fairs.
We offer holiday programmes during the German holidays for children and pupils. These seminars focus on technical subjects like 3D printing, programming and computer science in cooperation with our STEM team.
Experience study courses and student life at DIT
In addition to the general career guidance provided by the employment agency, we present the study programmes offered by the Deggendorf Institute of Applied Sciences, e.g.
Trial studies offers the opportunity to participate in lectures, visit laboratories, speak with students and professord and discover the campus.
Duration: All day during holidays, otherwise 3-4 hours.
Excursion programmes include a short presentation of DIT, the presentation of one or two selected sutdy programmes, discussions with student mentors, and a campus toud with laboratory visit.
Duration: approx. 1-2 hours, maximum number of participants: 100.
Themed workshops offer an in-depth examination of selected topics in small groups. The topics available for selection can be found under the heading 11/2: In-depth study and career orientation.
Duration: depending on the number of selected workshops: 2-6 hours, possible lunch at the Mensa. Maximum number of participants: 100.
We (the centre for studies and/or professors and /or student mentors) will come to you upon invitation or organise an excursion programme or themed workshop by personal arrangement at least 6 weeks before the desired date of your visit. For taster days it is best to register 8 weeks in advance.
From mid-February to mid-March, students have the opportunity to come to DIT and take an in-depth look at the following topics related to studies and careers in selected workshops (Please make your choice):
The workshops are limited to 10 participants and last about 20 minutes. Afterwards there is a change, so that each group goes through all the thematic workshops. In this small group, individual questions can be answered very well. In total this programme takes about 2-6 hours, depending on how many workshops are selected, e.g.: 6 workshops in three hours, 8 in four hours (Lunch at the Mensa is possible).
A taster day during the Easter holiday and the counseling and events offered by the Centre for Studies provide further in-depth information.
The Deggendorf Institute of Technology supports project work together with cooperating companies. Students are thus given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with courses of study and occupational fields in the fields of technology, business and health. Prerequisites for this are prior consultation with the school and available time and personnel resources at DIT.
For project work that cannot be directly supervised by DIT, we try to arrange business contacts.
In the scientific seminars, technical contents and working methods are to be conveyed on the basis of practice-oriented project work.
We work tirelessly with schools throughout the region and further afield. Joint actions include, but are not limited to: a regular exchange, information events, teacher training sessions and specialist projects. The basis for the continuous cooperation is a great commitment on the part of the schools and our university.
The Central Student Advisory Service and DIT's STEM team regularly publish a newsletter with current information & interesting facts for schools.
