DIT welcomes freshers

Start of the semester at the university campus

5.10.2022 | DIT Public Relations

The campus of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) was buzzing with people: On Thuesday, 4 October, around 2,200 students began their studies in Deggendorf and at the campuses in Cham and Pfarrkirchen. Officials of the university, the city and the student institutions warmly welcomed the newcomers.

Deggendorf’s Mayor Dr. Christian Moser started the Freshers’ day. He warmly welcomed all students to the city of Deggendorf and focused on anticipation: The Christmas market in Deggendorf will take place this year. The prospect of mulled wine and biscuits made those present very happy in view of the initially chilly temperatures. Prof. Waldemar Berg, Vice President of DIT, encouraged the prospective students to take their studies seriously and to take advantage of the opportunities and potential at DIT. At the same time, he said, studying is a formative time in personal and social terms. Leisure time and friends are just as important a part of this period of life as learning. In Deggendorf, a city with a distinctive nightlife and an extremely attractive surrounding area, the best conditions exist for all of this. Afterwards, representatives of the various higher education institutions, the student union and the university’s church congregations welcomed the newcomers to Deggendorf in both German and English. This has long been a common and necessary procedure at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology, as DIT’s strategy continues to bear fruit. With 41 percent international students from 123 countries, the Deggendorf Institute of Technology is one of the most international universities in Bavaria. The university is still growing. Around 2,200 students will begin their degrees at DIT in the winter semester. According to Dr. Jörg Kunz, the numers will still increase, as there are still a number of open enrolments that will be counted once complete. A total of 8,500 students are currently studying at the campus in Deggendorf and at the teaching locations in Pfarrkirchen and Cham.
