Research at DIT

Customised R&D Innovations for Companies Around the Globe

Main Areas of Research.

The strength of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology lies in applied research and development. The strategic goal is to bundle knowledge and create the basis for improving and intensifying cooperation between the faculties, the Technology Campuses and the institutes. The DIT has four main research areas, explained in more detail below. 


Digital Economy & Society


Information and communication technologies (ICT) are important drivers of innovative value chains and products in many areas of life and the economy. The development and integration of digital technologies in industrial user sectors is crucial for competitiveness.

Nanotechnology & New Materials

  • Plastics Technology
  • Micro- and Nanoanalytics
  • New materials - glass for technological applications
  • Reliability and quality assurance


Intelligent Mobility


New mobility concepts are designed to transport people and goods as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible, as well as efficiently, with low emissions and in a resource-friendly manner. This also requires an intelligent transport policy that optimally links individual modes of transport.



Autonomous driving

  • Automotive Electronics

Electric mobility

  • Electromobility

Health Sciences

Innovative Working Environment & Healthy Living


New forms of work organisation, greater service orientation, changing qualification profiles and job descriptions, more interactive value-added processes and increasing digitisation - all these are driving forces behind the profound changes that the modern world of work is undergoing. Health includes the desire to be active and efficient for as many years as possible. As a result, questions of prevention and nutrition are increasingly becoming the focus of attention - for the well-being of people as well as for economic performance.
