Academic Excellence

The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) strives for academic excellence and indeed 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 various student clubs, an extensive sports programme, and a competent and always helpful International Office, Career Service and Child Care Centre. It is the perfect environment for students to shape their futures and move forward into academic success.

The Choices

More than 6000 students, almost 15% of which are internationals, study a range of Bachelor and Master courses taught in English or German. All our courses are officially accredited by FIBAA and ASIIN according to international standards.
DIT is committed to producing global graduates with international degrees: 180 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 in German language training which is tremendously beneficial for international students, helping them integrate easily into the Bavarian lifestyle.

The Focus

The university focuses on three disciplines: firstly, full-time education; secondly, applied research & development and thirdly, further education. The focus of the full-time education offers is on 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 Further Education Centre; these courses are geared towards students who work full-time whilst pursuing further education to further their careers.

The Campus

In comparison to city universities, DIT is a relatively compact campus, which is exactly what creates such a familiar and comfortable atmosphere for staff and students. Lecture theatres, labs and workshops are in close proximity, encouraging engineering, business and media students to mingle with science, nursing and international management students. Parking is available on campus (in pay and free car parks) and pedestrian and cycle paths link college to town.

The Lifestyle

The DIT campus is located next to the beautiful river Danube and is conveniently within easy walking distance of Deggendorf's town centre. Deggendorf is an affluent, lively, multicultural and diverse town set in Bavaria, southern Germany, only a 1-hour drive away from the city of Munich. It enjoys an outstandigly low unemployment rate and has excellent public transport links including an international airport nearby. The surrounding landscape of rolling hills provides a stunning picturesque backdrop to enjoy the vast selection of recreational activities available.
