We can't change the wind, but we can set the sails differently. (Aristotle)


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.


Counselling services

The counselling centre “StuCoS“ can help you in the following areas and situations:

Psychosocial counselling:

  • General issues of daily life and social integration
  • Conflicts with fellow students, teachers or in your relationship, etc.
  • Dissatisfaction with your social situation
  • Psychological stress caused by studying
  • Socialising difficulties or other issues that are bothering you

Study guidance:

The following questions often come up in connection with your studies:

  • What is expected of me as a student in terms of learning?
  • Which study methods are best suited for daily learning in studies?
  • Are my self-competences dependent on my own learning success?

Often these questions cannot be answered on their own. You will receive competent support in the following areas:

  • Problems with learning through coaching, e.g.: effective exam preparation
  • Stress and studying, relaxation techniques, learning techniques
  • Self/time management, diary to manage your study time, etc.

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.


Check out this overview of the Sustainability Lab.


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.


Robert FeichtRaimund Brotsack and Christoph Lindenbergerlead through the following four modules of the course:

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 (robert.feicht@th-deg.de).


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.

Students of the Bachelor's programme International Tourism Management of the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) visited the tourism destination Oberschwaben-Allgäu in Baden-Württemberg together with students of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU) for a field internship. There they gained extensive insight into what the region has to offer, the cooperation between the individual partners and developed product innovations.

The tourism students from both universities travelled to Oberschwaben-Allgäu together with Prof. Dr. Marcus Herntrei and Prof. Dr. Georg Christian Steckenbauer from ECRI and Prof. Roland Lymann and Lisa Fickel from HSLU. The region is not only halfway between Pfarrkirchen and Lucerne, but with its thermal and mud baths and its focus on health tourism, it offers the ideal conditions for a field placement. The aim was to get to know the diverse offer of the region and the different stakeholders such as hotels, spas, tourism destination and municipalities. Among other things, the group visited the Adelindis Therme, the feelMOOR Gesundresort in Bad Wurzach, the Waldsee-Therme health centre and exchanged views with Petra Misch, the managing director of Oberschwaben Tourismus GmbH. This formed the basis for an analysis of the offer by the students, who developed product innovations based on this, coordinated with the tourism master plan of the destination Oberschwaben-Allgäu.


Digital health is becoming increasingly important and is now indispensable. Students of the degree programmes Master of Digital Health as well as Bachelor of Health Informatics, and Master of Global Public Health of the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) visited the DMEA in Berlin, Europe's most important event in the field of Digital Health, from 25 to 27 April.

The students of the three degree programmes share a passion for Digital Health and Health IT. The visit to DMEA, led by Professor Dr Georgi Chaltikyan, is therefore always the highlight of the year, which is why more than 50 students went along to DMEA in Berlin. At DMEA, they took part in the "Guided Tours", among other things, where they were able to learn about selected key topics on site and get to know the corresponding companies, their products and services. In addition, "DMEA Sparks" offered the students the opportunity to talk to medical institutions and companies in matchmaking sessions and thus get to know potential employers. For Professor Chaltikyan's group, the visit to DMEA was the perfect opportunity to gain a comprehensive insight into the latest developments and trends in the industry. The trade fair provided the perfect environment to exchange ideas about digital health with the community in person. In addition, the students learned about a wide range of opportunities for further education, careers and research in this field and are now well equipped for the future.

The DMEA is considered Europe's leading event for digital health. It takes place annually in Berlin and, with over 700 exhibitors and more than 300 lectures and keynotes, offers the professional audience the opportunity to obtain intensive information and network with international experts. This year, over 16,000 people attended the DMEA.


The current developments towards more sustainability and regionality are also making its way to the surface in the construction sector. The Building Products and Processes (BPP) degree programme at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) focuses, among other things, on innovations and how individual building products contribute to the overall balance of a building. Students of this degree programme now visited the construction site of a "green" logistics building to experience first-hand what matters.

The students and laboratory engineer Jennifer Huber had been invited by Martina Kögl-Wiethaler, the owner of Ökokiste DonauWald GmbH & Co. to visit the construction site in Saulburg. Together with her son Xaver and the site managers of the company Haas Fertigbau GmbH, Benedikt Bachmeier and Christian Tippelt, she welcomed the ECRI visitors. After a brief introduction of the Ökokiste and its philosophy of ecology and sustainability, Martina Kögl-Wiethaler went into detail about the building under construction. The customer base, which had grown considerably during the Corona period, required a new logistics building including offices and a salesroom. In keeping with the company's philosophy, a sustainable and refined building was to be created. For this purpose, the decision was made to cooperate with the Haas company, which also focuses on regionality.

Site managers Bachmeier and Tippelt took the students on a tour of the construction site. There they went into details about the building, such as packing stations, hygiene areas, the light-flooded social room for employees, the roof terrace and the green roof. They also presented the challenges of how these could be implemented sustainably and in accordance with the customer's wishes. These details were of great interest to the students, who will later work as an interface between construction manager and civil engineer. Especially the photos of the individual construction phases and progress together with the explanation by the construction managers went down well with the students.

After visiting the construction site of the Ökokiste DonauWald and having a snack together, the group continued to Straubing to the company Wienerberger GmbH. There, the students learned about the company and the production steps of roof tiles and were allowed to take a look at production. This is an important step for the budding engineers to familiarise themselves with different building materials. Later on, they will need to know what is important in sustainable, recyclable building products, such as Wienerberger's roof tiles.

The visit to the construction site of a sustainable company headquarters and the subsequent tour of the Wienerberger plant left the students with many new exciting impressions and gave them a varied insight into the professional field.
