Academic excellence

Founded in 1994, we are a modern, multi-award-winning and excellently equipped university offering undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses designed around the demands of national and global business and commerce. We strive for academic excellence and indeed rank among the best universities of applied sciences in Germany.

The choices

Our student population of almost 8.000, including 29% international students, study a range of degree courses taught in English or German. DIT follows the ‘National Code of Conduct for German Universities Regarding International Students.’ The guiding principle of this code is to grant international students the same rights, services and assistance as are available to EU students.

We are committed to producing global graduates with international degrees: 195 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. In fact, all undergraduate degrees include a compulsory internship semester which can be undertaken either locally or abroad.

We cooperate with more than 500 regional and multinational companies, including global players such as BMW, MAN, Continental, ZF and Siemens, where students can gain invaluable work experience. In addition to this, the university Career Service hosts a mentoring programme, in which students cooperate with a professional business mentor to help them achieve their professional goals. This active promotion soothes the transition from academic to professional career, meaning our graduates are particularly successful in the job market.

Teaching campuses

Students are distributed throughout eight faculties on two campuses. The main campus in Deggendorf has a large range of degree programmes instructed in either English or German. In the European Campus Rottal-Inn, all students are taught exclusively in English (with international students attending German lessons). These two teaching campuses are one hours drive apart and both are in Bavaria, Southern Germany.

We consider a great lifestyle to be an important factor for the well-being of our students. They are supported with many facilities, such as a range of student clubs, an extensive sports programme (we are currently German university football champions), and a competent and always helpful International Office, Career Service and Child Care Centre. We host many students’ events, including campus and music festivals annually each summer.

All faculties, workshops and service centres for our students are based in, on and around our campus, creating an open, friendly and communicative environment among staff, students and teaching staff.

Newly built, self-contained student apartment blocks are within close walking or biking proximity to campus. Come and join our pioneering and vibrant university community.
