A new type of degree course in conjunction with the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen and the Institute for Technology and Business in Budweis has been successfully launched at DIT. Participating students from the three cooperating universities are sponsored by companies based in both Bavaria and the Czech Republic, where they gain work experience during their studies. This programme, which is backed by EU funding, has been titled CAST, meaning “Company Academic Students Training”.

Claudia Probst from DIT’s Career Service explained the reason behind CAST, “The border region Bavaria - Czech Republic should become more attractive for young people by focusing on a stronger link to companies and thus to the region“.
