Certificate Intercultural Competence

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: iccecri@th-deg.de. 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 iccecri@th-deg.de.

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.

04.02.2020 | DIT PR - On January 21 Medical and Health Informatics students of European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) participated in an exclusive field trip to the Research Campus Garching. There they visited Leibniz-Rechenzentrum (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, one of the largest and most prominent supercomputing centres, and UnternehmerTUM of the Technical University of Munich, a centre for Innovation and Business Creation. The field trip was organized within the framework of Master Medical Informatics. LRZ is the IT service provider for all Munich universities as well as a growing number of research organisations throughout Bavaria. In addition to this regional focus, it also plays an important role as one of the members of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), delivering top-tier high performance computing (HPC) services on the national and European level. The guided tour in LRZ commenced with a visit to the Virtual Reality and Visualization centre (V2C). The demo of V2C inside its Powerwall and 5-Sided Projection was a unique experience for the students. Followed, was the visit to the 'SuperMUC-NG’ in the "Twin-cube" - supercomputer building. Its 26.9 Petaflops, 719 Terabytes memory, 50 Petabytes external data storage and 100 Gbit/s internet connectivity, makes it the 8th best in the world, providing first-class information technology for researchers in the fields of physics, chemistry, life sciences, geography, climate research, and engineering. The tour also detailed the hardware specifics, backup, archiving and also the highly efficient cooling system. The next session of the visit included a presentation on the history of LRZ, services offered by LRZ, future requirements for IT services and possible cooperation opportunities. The visit at LRZ concluded with a Q&A. Next, the group visited UnternehmerTUM, a place that offers founders and start-ups a complete service, from the initial idea all the way to initial public offering (IPO). The visit to this creativity centre began with an extensive look at Maker Space. This 1500-square-metre high-tech workshop is equipped with state-of-the-art machines, tools and software and gives access to its members as well as the public to realize innovative ideas in the form of prototypes and small batch production. The unique place offered by UnternehmerTUM is available to the national and international innovation and entrepreneurial scene. A demo of 3D printers and laser and water jet cutters that make it possible to fabricate new shapes and to process every type of material was an enthralling experience for the students. Followed was the visit to BioKitchen, another initiative of UnterneherTUM, which provides a place where one can work on biological or chemical ideas and turn it into a product. There the highlights were the current polymerase chain reaction in genetical material duplication and a soon to be released DNA printer. Later the same evening the students could also participate in the Tech-Challenge Demo Day, an innovation pitch event were tech-fans with backgrounds in Informatics, Management or Electronics showcased their unique products. The first-hand experience of many prototypes created a profound sense of inspiration in most students.
