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. Our philosophy enshrines a harmonious and colourful cooperation, which we have laid down in our guidelines for teaching and learning at the European Campus Rottal-Inn.
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 intercultural skills in practice.
The certificate programme is currently being worked on and will be offered again in the Summer Semester 2023. Infos will follow here soon.

The studies are an important milestone in life. During your studies, you want to build up the necessary professional and social skills and gain important experience for the future, in order to realise your own potentials later in life. On this path, you take on a lot of responsibility. You’re facing new challenges every day, which often require a lot of strength and energy.
In life, however, not everything always goes according to plan. That can also happen in your studies. Many unexpected problems can be solved quickly if you get competent help in time. It often helps at first if you can talk about your worries and problems with someone.
The "Student Counselling Service" (StuCoS) at the European Campus Rottal-Inn is aimed at students who feel the need to talk confidentially about themselves and their personal situation. The students are supported in looking at their own situation "from the outside in", looking for and finding solutions together, in order to ultimately get out of a difficult situation.
StuCoS sees itself as the first point of contact for very personal concerns of those seeking advice. Since the counsellor cannot be an expert in all areas, they work confidentially and closely networked with other counselling centres in the region. In this way, you will receive comprehensive professional guidance and support in your personal concerns.
The counselling centre “StuCoS“ can help you in the following areas and situations:
The following questions often come up in connection with your studies:
Often these questions cannot be answered on their own. You will receive competent support in the following areas:

Sustainability is an integral part of the university operations at the European Campus Rottal-Inn. With a variety of projects and activities we make sustainability a tangible experience. As a university, we train multipliers and thus bear a responsibility in shaping a sustainable future.
Promotion of skills and raising awareness in the sense of education for sustainable development through innovative teaching, actions, excursions and the development of projects related to topics of sustainability.
We use the synergies between our projects and network partners to creatively address innovative issues related to sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Sustainability Lab is open to all professors, staff & students for project work, teaching and final theses.
International days bring together activities, projects and ideas around a single theme and make it accessible to a broad public in a variety of ways. At the European Campus Rottal-Inn, university members use thematically appropriate days as hooks to present study programmes, research projects or current topics in various formats on campus. Whether it's an interview, a competition announcement or a short contribution via the social media channels - there are no limits to creativity to generate attention for this day and provide information.

From WS21/22, the Deggendorf Institute of Technology in cooperation with the OTH Amberg-Weiden and the TH Nuremberg will offer a digital self-learning course (in German) entitled "Fundamentals of Sustainability". The course provides insights into the societal, economic, material and technical foundations of a transformation to sustainability and shows the causes for this from a scientific perspective.
General foundations of sustainability: Students learn about the interrelationships of social, ecological and economic factors and actors and apply basic sustainability models and analysis methods.
Economic framework of sustainability: Students learn methods of environmental and resource economics and assess the use of sustainability policy instruments.
Materiality and sustainability: Students understand the material cycles of the earth and learn about the production of materials from renewable raw materials and the recycling and disposal of products.
Energy and sustainability: Students understand the basics of climate change. They learn about current technologies and developments and assess measures in the field of regenerative energy systems in the context of grid expansion, energy distribution and storage technologies.
The course can be booked via the Virtual University of Bavaria and can be integrated by vhb sponsoring universities into their degree programmes. The project leader at TH Deggendorf is Prof. Dr. Robert Feicht (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sustainability is an integral value and component of the European Campus Rottal-Inn and accordingly also means for us to harmonise "economic performance, ecological responsibility and social justice". It is precisely these basic pillars of sustainability that we are currently trying to unite in an exciting and ambitious pilot project on the topic of "Forest, Health and Tourism". The driving research question here is: "How can we use local, native forest and natural areas sustainably, for health tourism, and create added value for all stakeholders in the process?"
In the course of the INTERREG project AB291 "Forest Health Tourism Network", in which the European Campus is even the lead partner, we have joined forces with a broad, interdisciplinary consortium and are investigating this and other important questions - especially in Corona times.
You can find more information about our exciting project in our project overview.

In December 2022, Prof. Dr. Georgi Chaltikyan from the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI), was invited to participate and contribute to the 1st Central Asian Regional Meeting on Telemedicine that took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
The event consisted of two days with extensive workshops attended by healthcare and technology specialists from all over Asia. The goal was to establish a cooperative framework, both among the Central Asian countries, and with the European partners, to develop and implement a cross-border telemedicine network in Central Asia. Prof. Dr. Georgi Chaltikyan was invited by the Robert Koch Institute and the WHO Regional Office as an established international telemedicine expert, to contribute to the analysis of the existing situation, and to help develop the roadmap for this framework.
During the 1st Central Asian Regional Meeting on Telemedicine participants presented their multi-faceted experience, exchanged ideas, and developed a preliminary roadmap of a regional telemedicine network project. They analysed different aspects of such a major telemedicine programme, including needs and requirements, capacity building and education, the technical aspects and interoperability, as well as regulations and the legal requirements. To work out the framework there were panel discussions and participants could join four different discussion groups. Prof. Chaltikyan not only participated in a panel discussion, but he also led the activities in the working group on capacity building and digital health education. At the end of the event, the participants jointly approved and signed a Declaration of Commitment to develop telemedicine and digital health in the Central Asian republics. It is expected that similar activities will be taking place in the next years, to result in the establishment of a functioning and sustainable regional telemedicine programme. Such experience can then be dublicated in other regions of the world.
The 1st Central Asian Regional Meeting on Telemedicine was attended by about 100 healthcare and technology specialists from all five Central Asian republics: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, as well as from Iran. It was jointly organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), the main German development agency, the Robert Koch Institute, which is the public health institute in Germany, and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, one of Europe’s largest university hospitals, affiliated with Humboldt University and Free University Berlin. The local organisers were the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Department of Management of Advanced Medical Technologies in Uzbekistan. Other prominent actors were the WHO’s Regional Office for Europe, and the Norwegian Center for eHealth Research based at the University of Tromsø.
For two years, everyone has been talking about the pandemic. But how do you communicate this or other health-related topics correctly? Students from all over the world explored this question at the Global Public Health Winterschool at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) from 10 to 17 January 2023.
About 30 students from all over the world travelled to Pfarrkirchen for the winter school, which was offered as part of the Global Public Health (GPH) degree programme, and the same number joined virtually during the week. The event was themed around communication, which is an integral part of the work of any health authority. Among other things, the focus was on intercultural communication and how to takes place through health campaigns, scientific communication and addressing political actors. But the topics of social media in health communication was also on the agenda. The organizer of the winter school and head of the GPH Master’s programme, Prof. Dr. Sabine Dittrich, had brought in renowned reinforcement. With Dr Charlotte Hammer from Camebridge University in England and Edgar Gonzales from the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Switzerland, international experts contributed to a successful week.
In addition, the students visited the State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL) in Oberschleißheim together with Prof. Dittrich. They learned more about the German reporting system for infectious diseases from local epidemiologists and microbiologists. As the motto of the winter school was communication of health-related topics, the experts from the LGL went into detail about local health issues and how these were communicated with the population and the professional audience.
Outside of the courses, the students had enough programme to get to know the area and the Lower Bavarian culture. During an excursion to Passau, a joint bowling evening and a Bavarian snack, the participants had a lively exchange, true to the motto of the winter school. One of the highlights was the dinner in the restaurant of the town hall, which was made possible by the generous financial support of the ECRI Förderverein, the district of Rottal-Inn and the town of Pfarrkirchen.
Students of the Master’s programme Healthy and Sustainable Buildings (HSB) at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) visited the Pichlmayr Senioren-Zentrum Pfarrkirchen. They learned about the challenges of living at old age and how these are incorporated in their work as experts for healthy and sustainable building.
During the excursion, the group led by Prof. Dr. Michael Laar explored the premises, which were still empty at the time. The students were guided through the building by employees of SH Projekte, the company that planned the centre. Particular attention was paid to the structural requirements that the age of the residents brings with it and how the students can incorporate these into their work in the future. As experts for healthy and sustainable building, the students are trained, among other things, with regard to the residents and what requirements they have for the buildings. The visit to the Pichlmayr Senioren-Zentrum was therefore an important experience for the students. Since structural measures must also function well in real operation, the facility management was also present during the visit and answered the students’ questions about the facility’s care operations.
The senior citizens’ residence was only recently completed and has been accommodating its first residents since the end of November. Since the HSB students were able to visit the facility shortly before moving in, it was possible to take a look behind the scenes and into all areas.
