How to manage Universities of Applied Sciences?

Delegation from Ethiopia visits Deggendorf Institute of Technology

4.4.2023 | DIT Public Relations

A study trip took 17 university presidents from Ethiopia to the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) at the end of March. On their trip, they visited several universities to get an image of how universities of applied sciences are run. In Deggendorf, the group learned from DIT President Peter Sperber about the strategic orientation of the university, how professors are appointed and how DIT positions itself as an employer. Ulrike Sauckel, Head of Student Orientation, provided information about digital teaching offers and the practice-oriented focus of teaching. In Teisnach, the DIT guests learned about the Technology Campus concept.

The nine-day study trip of the Ethiopian university presidents was organised and financed by CHE gemeinnütziges Zentrum für Hochschulentwicklung, the Bavarian Research Alliance and the Bavarian Office in Ethiopia. In addition to DIT, visits to the TH Ingolstadt and the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences were scheduled. In May, the deans of the same universities will travel to Germany to restructure their own universities on the basis of what they have learned.
