We are an international and multicultural faculty where all courses are offered exclusively in English for students with global ambitions. Practical exercises are integrated into the lectures and implemented during the practical semester, which is compulsory for all Bachelor students.Prof. Dr. Georg Christian Steckenbauer (Faculty Dean)
With the best technical equipment, the labs and workshops offer the basis for modern and practical hands-on education. Modern technology based on industrial standards make it possible for you to deepen the knowledge you've acquired in lectures during all phases of your course. In addition, labs provide the basis for numerous R&D projects and therefore students have a wide range of bachelor's and master's projects to work on.

The Intercultural Competence Certificate offers students the opportunity to learn about intercultural competence from different perspectives and to reflect on their own intercultural skills in practice.
DIT students can acquire this certificate in four steps:
To apply for the certificate, you must first complete the Intercultural Training PLV course at ECRI. This PLV is offered several times per semester from WS 19/20 onwards.
When you have completed the course, please send an e-mail to: email@example.com. You will then receive the information you need to register in Moodle for the Intercultural Competence Certificate.
Once you have registered for the certificate, you can choose either one of the intercultural projects offered on Moodle or an individual intercultural project. However, individual projects must be approved before they start. These requests can be made via the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These projects are designed to enable the student to interact with other students of different nationalities or to interact with local communities on an intercultural level.
You will either write a report on your compulsory internship in your degree programme or your semester abroad or instead take part in an advanced workshop on intercultural competence.
If you are doing an internship that is considered international because it takes place either in another culture or in an international environment, you can write a report about your intercultural experience during the internship. The report is based on a series of questions that will help you to reflect on your intercultural experience.
If you have decided to spend a semester abroad at a foreign school, you can write a report about your intercultural experience during your studies abroad. The report is based on a series of questions to help you reflect on your intercultural experience.
If you want to attend a workshop instead, you can attend a two-day workshop on an advanced topic of intercultural competence. This workshop is offered once a semester on the European Campus from SS20.
You will complete an e-learning exercise. The exercise is designed to guide you through different intercultural situations.
After completing all four steps according to the instructions in the Moodle course you will receive a certificate from the European Campus.
The Certificate of Intercultural Competence was developed by Prof. Cummings-Koether at the European Campus. She is Professor of Intercultural Management and has been working in the intercultural field for more than 15 years, both professionally and academically.

02.07.2019 | DIT PR - From 16-17 June the 1st COSIMENA Meta-Conference on "Digital Development and Challenges in the MENA Region" took place in Cairo, Egypt. Anna Schmaus-Klughammer (LLB, hons), lecturer at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI), was invited to speak at the Health Cluster Session.
COSIMENA brings together scientists from Germany and Egypt. In her lecture "Digitization in Higher Education to improve Healthcare", Schmaus-Klughammer therefore also introduced the Deggendorf University of Technology (THD) and ECRI.
During the conference, Schmaus-Klughammer also met with Prof. Mahmoud El Tayeb of Nile Valley University (in the process of being founded) in Egypt to discuss a scientific project on "Improving health care in Egypt with the help of eHealth and telemedicine". The talks were preceded in 2018 by a visit of Prof. El Tayeb to the THD and a return visit to Egypt. During his stay at DIT, Prof. El Tayeb met with President Prof. Peter Sperber and ECRI Vice President and Campus Director Prof. Horst Kunhardt as well as Dr. Elise von Randow, Director of the Institute for Career, International Affairs and Language. Isabell Mering, Head of DAAD Offices in Cairo, was very pleased about this development.
Within the framework of COSIMENA, the DAAD Cairo Office organizes various interdisciplinary events on current topics in science and innovation. These include workshops, conferences, discussions, German Science Day, the COSIMENA Science Night and summer schools. The aim of the various activities is to bring together experts from science, trade, politics and society. The focus is particularly on the promotion and support of young scientists who benefit from the networking opportunities.
