The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) is being allocated five new professorships. Part of the funding comes from the High-Tech Agenda Bavaria, the Free State’s major future and technology offensive, and part from additional resources that Science Minister Bernd Sibler was able to obtain for the Bavarian universities of applied sciences and for the technical universities in the budget negotiations. The Minister made the announcement today in Munich.

Three of the five professorships are earmarked for the European Campus Rottal-Inn at the Pfarrkirchen location, which will also receive three additional positions for science support staff. The other two professorships and two positions for science support staff are earmarked for the Technology Campus Cham. “It is not least thanks to the high quality of the Pfarrkirchen study location that the European Campus has gained an excellent reputation worldwide in just a few years. With the additional three professorships, we can now massively strengthen this Lower Bavarian success model beyond the already planned new building by further expanding the degree programmes offered,” explained the Minister of Science. “The successful model of the Technoloy Campus (TC) Cham with its thematic focus on mechatronics and automation will also benefit with two additional professorships, a clear commitment by the Free State to the importance of the campus for applied research and its great significance for the regional science, business and industry location,” Sibler continued.
