digitalisation in dialogue.

exchange and cooperation between universities and industry

"Digitalisation in dialogue" means exchange and cooperation between universities and industry
on the comprehensive topic of "digitalisation". The aim is to interlink theory and practice. The focus is on mutual learning from each other, the recognition of market needs and future trends.

DIT pursues the following goals through the initiative "Digitalisation in Dialogue":

  •     Further development of the study courses and courses of study with regard to digitalisation
  •     Identifying the needs of the market, which should be reflected in research topics and research processes
  •     Development of student projects with partners from the economy
  •     Development of new forms of teaching in the digital age

We started our digitalisation offensive with a top-class symposium under the direction of Prof. Dr. Thomas Bartscher in September 2018 and are continuing the series of events with faculty forums, the so-called DigiCamps.

"Digitalisation in Dialogue" is funded by the target agreements with the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and the Arts.


This page will mostly inform you about our DigiCamps. If you're interested in our DIT Co-Working Space at ITC1, you can find further information on the co-working website.


At the DigiCamps the exchange between science and practice takes place: Companies and their employees are in dialogue with lecturers and researchers of the faculties and their students.


  •     Identifying digitisation trends in relevant industries or in a significant topic area with all its implications
  •     Discuss and evaluate digital trends on the basis of concrete case studies
  •     Raising awareness of the issue of digitisation
  •     Building a network for the participants

Invited are entrepreneurs and their employees, students, university members and the interested public.

"making of: spatenkeller bierpalast - architectural models printed in 3d"

Additive manufacturing (also known colloquially as "3D printing") offers potential for many industries, including construction. Architects and civil engineers are increasingly using 3D printers to create beautiful, physical and detailed models. Experts can now present their ideas and impress their clients with concrete models that take into account accurate construction or site information.

They save time, money and increase sales by using 3D printing to create complex and durable designs directly from CAD data.

And there are many benefits that industry professionals can gain from 3D printed models:

1. presenting an architectural or construction project to clients

2. reducing the design and development time of models

3. development of high quality landscape prototypes

4. saving on modelling costs

5. closer cooperation in prefabrication

The experts at DIT took this as an opportunity to use additive manufacturing to bring to life an old 2D plan of Munich's Spatenkeller beer palace - which, incidentally, was never realised. The design was created by the German architect Gabriel von Seidel (1848-1913), a representative of historicism and the Bavarian Heimatstil.

The result of the work is currently on display at the House of Bavarian History in Regensburg as part of the exhibition "Wirtshaus-Sterben? - Wirtshaus-Leben!" exhibition until 11 December 2022. Details about the exhibition can be found online: https://www.museum.bayern/ausstellungen/bayernausstellung-wirtshaussterben-wirtshausleben.html

The 3D model is a joint project of the Technology Campus Cham, DIT students and the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. At the DigiCamp, they will explain the processes that ultimately led to the creation of the model.

We look forward to your participation, the event is, as always, free of charge.

"the future of technical purchasing"


Data is being traded as the new oil or gold in companies. After all, companies today are sitting on an enormous treasure trove of data that only needs to be extracted. Terms such as Big Data, Industrie4.0, digitalisation and artificial intelligence are already on everyone's lips, but how can they be practically applied, especially in the area of procurement, to contribute to a company's success?

In our new DigiCamp on 12 April 2022, we would like to provide you with answers to precisely this question.

In his lecture, Prof. Dr. Christian Mandl will talk about how large amounts of data can be analysed (descriptive analytics) and used for forecasting purposes (predictive analytics). He goes one step further by showing how better decisions can be made in a targeted manner (prescriptive analytics). This approach is particularly essential for commodity procurement and other areas of purchasing with high price fluctuations. In his presentation, he shows how the high price volatility can be countered with the help of Big Data, hedging decisions and machine learning, thereby achieving corresponding savings potential and efficiency gains.

Robert Hilmer, co-founder of the Deggendorf-based start-up "Easy2Parts", will present the company's procurement platform of the same name. The mechanical engineer will demonstrate in practical use cases how artificial intelligence can automate, accelerate and simplify procurement processes and how a better supplier-customer fit can be achieved at the same time. 

Philipp Kellner, an employee of Easy2Parts and a DIT Master's student, will then report on the technical finesse behind such a procurement platform. In his master's thesis, he dealt with the question of how Deep Learning can be used to automatically categorise production parts within the platform.

Kathrin Auer then reported on the possibilities for cooperation between companies and DIT. For example, are you looking for interns, are you interested in a research cooperation or in a manufacturing service? Then the last part of the DigiCamp is the right place for you.

Last but not least, as always, there will be the opportunity for exchange and networking. 

We look forward to your participation, the event is, as always, free of charge.

"The Human Being in Organisation and Society - Business Psychology in Practice".


An event organised by the Department of Digitalisation | Innovative Teaching and the Centre for Academic Further Education (ZAW) of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology.


Companies have to face ever greater challenges. Changes in the work and production process (Working World 4.0 and Industry 4.0) do not allow for standstill, but demand agile action from all actors in the business environment.

Individual scientific disciplines have long since ceased to be able to explain the complexity of all economic processes; interdisciplinary approaches are necessary to open up new paths. Digitalisation and globalisation are fundamentally changing the world of work. New business models, strategies and forms of communication are the result.

Business psychology as a sub-discipline of psychology deals with the experience and behaviour of people in an economic context.

It thus sees itself as an interdisciplinary complement and interface to the core business competence in management. In corporate management, the view is increasingly establishing itself that, in addition to economic goal strivings, psychological skills are also a decisive factor in determining success.

Innovative and contemporary work and management skills in a triad of psychology, digitalisation and management skills form the foundation of the new part-time Master's programme in Business Psychology at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. To get in the mood for the new degree programme, but also to share knowledge and promote exchange, you are cordially invited to participate in the DigiCamp. You can expect four practical contributions from proven industry representatives and, if you are still interested, a presentation of the new degree programme and also the cooperation opportunities between companies and the university.

"Offices without folders? - Digitalisation in (public) administration"

An event organised by the Department of Digitalisation | Innovative Teaching and digitalisation partners of DIT.


Digitalisation means an enormous transformation process for public administration.

It does not stop at any area of our lives - not even the labour market. Not only the private sector is confronted with changes, but also the public sector. We all interact with it every day. It is the interface between citizens and the state. With 4.6 million employees, it is Germany's largest employer. The challenges of the digital age and the accompanying transformation processes from the analogue to the digital therefore affect not only us as citizens, but also a large number of employees in public administration. The effects of digitalisation on users and employees of public administration are therefore the focus of the DigiCamp "Digitalisation in (Public) Administration".

The term e-government refers to the digitalisation of the administrative apparatus. The aim is to make administrative services electronically accessible to citizens and businesses.

In a European comparison, Germany still performs relatively poorly in the area of "digital administrative services" and is only in 19th place, which is significantly below the European average. There is therefore still great potential that can and should be exploited.

Germany has set itself the goal of making the most important administrative services available online via a uniform portal by 2022. To this end, the E-Government Act was passed in 2013 and the Online Access Act (OZG) in 2017. In order to achieve the self-imposed goal, beyond the legal and technical foundations, the work in the public administration must also be partially restructured and realigned.

"Printing a House! - 3D concrete printing in construction""


A cooperation with the Faculty of Civil & Environmental Engineering with the Digitalisation | Innovative Teaching Department of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology.


3D concrete printing is the new technology in the construction of buildings. It brings concrete into shape without the use of formwork - quickly, safely, cost-effectively and with great design freedom. For example, printing a single-family house takes only 48 hours on average, thanks to holistic planning in BIM even including the ducts for water or electrical lines. This increases efficiency on the construction site, saves time and money.

According to industry experts, 3D concrete printing will revolutionise the construction industry, also because it places hardly any limits on the creativity of architects and builders. This makes it easy to develop and realise new structures and shapes and to create resistant, architecturally innovative buildings - without increasing costs compared to conventional construction methods. Additive manufacturing in construction also promises more sustainable building through the optimal use of materials.

At the DigiCamp, practical users of the new technology will tell you more about the manufacturing process, its advantages and disadvantages, and also what is already possible. Dr Fabian Meyer-Brötz, Head of 3D Construction Printing at PERI AG and Dr Didier Lootens, Head of Material Physics at Sika Technology AG will share their respective experiences in their presentations.

The virtual DigiCamp is aimed at interested companies and their employees, engineering firms, freelancers and, of course, students and other interested parties from the relevant disciplines.

"Additive Manufacturing: Which process is right for me?"


A cooperation with the Technologie Campus Cham with the Department of Digitalisation | Innovative Teaching of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology.


Almost everyone is now familiar with plastic figures from the 3D printer - but the fact that additive manufacturing can also be used to process industrial materials such as metals, ceramics and resilient plastics is still relatively unknown. Yet additive processes bring with them completely new design freedom for new products, components and tools. The current DigiCamp of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology at its branch location at the Technology Campus in Cham shows the advantages for small and medium-sized enterprises and how additive manufacturing processes can be used economically.  

Additive manufacturing is a basic principle of production. Material is continuously added to a component either layer by layer or freely in space - in contrast to subtractive manufacturing such as milling or drilling, where material is removed. There are now over 40 manufacturing processes in additive manufacturing that process numerous materials. With so many possibilities, it is of course important to know the special features of the individual manufacturing processes in order to then be able to decide on the most suitable process for your own company.

Learn more about the individual manufacturing processes, their advantages and disadvantages and also what is already possible on site at the campus from the campus director Prof. Aumer at the DigiCamp. In addition, Dipl. Ing. Heiko Muhr from Ingenieurbüro Muhr will show you how individual processes are already being used in his company in Schorndorf.

Don't miss the opportunity to see what cooperation possibilities are possible between university and industry.

The virtual DigiCamp is aimed at interested companies and their employees, engineering firms, freelancers and, of course, students and other interested parties from the relevant faculties.

We cordially invite you to participate in our virtual DigiCamp "Additive Manufacturing" on 6 July 2021.

"Life Science Meets Informatics"


Department for digitalisation | Innovative teaching

For further information and registration, please click here


The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology produces large amounts of data of the (human) genome, epigenome and associated transcriptome, the analysis and interpretation of which is a growing challenge. Therefore, it is important to create a functional and resilient interface between natural scientists and computer scientists. The volumes of data generated in the decoding of human, animal or plant genomes, for example, must be processed and correlated in order to make them useful.

Biomedical research and molecular diagnostics are currently using a variety of computational analysis tools to identify and analyse genes that are predictive of prognosis or therapeutic response with respect to a disease (precision medicine, personalised medicine). The analysis and evaluation of these data sets requires knowledge in the field of biomedicine combined with application-oriented informatics. Exactly these core competences are necessary to perform a high-quality and meaningful data analysis - transparent and comprehensible.

First-class speakers will provide you with insights into the latest research focuses, diagnostic applications and the latest technologies of Next Generation Sequencing methodology.

The virtual DigiCamp is aimed at experts from companies in the pharmaceutical, medical technology and other industries. Research institutions and interested master students from the fields of bioinformatics, biology, chemistry, medicine and pharmacy are also cordially invited to attend.

"Virtual Reality in Construction - 3D, BIM & more"


Department of Digitalisation | Innovative Teaching


Info and registration


Wednesday, 24 March 2021

Digitalisation in companies in the construction industry is progressing inexorably and is providing companies with a whole range of advantages. In the construction industry, the planning method Building Information Modelling (BIM) in particular has an extraordinarly high potential. While architects used to work on the classic drawing board, some of them already use modern BIM programmes to create designs. Models of this kind also enable applications in the field of virtual reality.

Virtual reality (VR) makes it possible to create a quasi-real environment with the help of computer-generated 3D images. VR users can move around in this virtual environment and perceive (virtual) objects as if they were in the real environment. The construction industry can make these advantages its own, for example, when it comes to showing clients the finished objects in advance and thus planning together and also preventing misunderstandings. Because regardless of whether the project is small or large: The planning and implementation of construction projects is extremely complicated in practice and therefore offers a lot of room for mistakes and misunderstandings.

In the virtual environment, for example, it is possible to check how exactly daylight enters the building through the windows or whether the building fits in well with its surroundings. Planning errors can also be uncovered quickly and effectively during a virtual tour.

Digital error correction in the planning phase saves both time and money. Errors that are only discovered after the start of construction usually result in significant additional costs.

The virtual DigiCamp is aimed at interested civil engineers, architects, companies in the sector, engineering offices, freelancers and, of course, students and others interested in the relevant fields.

We cordially invite you to participate in our virtual DigiCamp "Virtual Reality in Construction on 24 March 2021.

Everyone is talking about it and agrees that "digitalisation" is the order of the day. But how can companies make themselves digitally fit? What needs to be considered and how do you proceed correctly and with a plan?

Often, a successful implementation of digitalisation fails due to an individual strategy, because digitalisation is much more than the usual online trade and its ERP processes. It is necessary to identify optimisation potentials along the value chain and in the product portfolio that bring a functional or cost advantage. In this context, pragmatic actionism is just as nonsensical as an overly complex digitisation vision.

The virtual DigiCamp "DigiFitnessCheck" is designed to help companies develop an adapted and individual digitisation strategy for themselves in order to successfully face the digital future.

"Digitalisation in orthopaedics - Where are the benefits for clinics, doctors and patients?"

Faculty European Campus Rottal-Inn - Prof. Dr. Thomas Spittler


Digital technologies help us to better solve the current challenges of the healthcare system. Their use is therefore becoming increasingly important in the healthcare system with its more than five million employees. Digitalisation enables better and more efficient care and broader access to medical expertise. This is especially true in rural regions. New forms of better care for patients in the home environment can also be realised through digital technologies.

But what are the concrete benefits and effects of digitalisation for the specialist discipline of orthopaedics? The design of individualised implants is just one example of how digital technologies are already being used. Where can further valuable areas of application arise? Can artificial intelligence (AI) provide decision-making aids through appropriate algorithms in diagnosis and therapy?

Are you working in the medical field and interested in implementing digital trends in your clinic, doctor's practice, rehabilitation facility or physiotherapy practice? Then DigiCamp is the right place for you!

Companies are also asking themselves what employees need to know to be successful in digitalisation, as many are currently in the middle of a digital transformation toward Industry 4.0.The keywords here are "digital literacy" and "data literacy". Without the necessary level of digital literacy, there will be no progress in professional life in the future. Companies are also asking themselves how they can further qualify their employees with the help of digital media.

Target group: 

Are you a managing director, personnel officer, HR specialist or executive and interested in implementing digital trends for personnel development and further training in your company? Or are you active in teaching? Then DigiCamp is the right place for you!

Future-oriented IT security technologies penetrate digitalisation and change the laws of the market. In the context of this DigiCamp, two particularly disruptice technologies and their effects will be highlighted.

The Distributed-Ledger-Technologies describe a technique for networked systems with which a consensus on a sequence of transitions is formed in a tamper-proof way. In German called "Distributed Ledger", a decentralised database is understood, which allows participants of a network a common read and write authorisation. In contrast to a centrally managed database. New records can be added at any time by the participants themselves. A subsequent update process ensures that all participants always have the latest version of the database.

Artificial Intelligence describes the ability of autonomous digital systems to recognise patterns and logics on the basis of which independent decisions are made and improvements are derived from the resulting actions. Especially in the area of Industry 4.0 and due to the trend of autonomous driving in the automotive industry, methods of Artificial Intelligence are already successfully in use. Also in many other branches of industry a rapid spread can be observed.

The combination of both technologies enables the creation of completely autonomous networks, which in turn will pave the way for new business models.

In a joint dialogue with partners from industry and science, you will gain insight into the disruptive innovations of distributed ledger technologies and Artificial Intelligence and can discuss with experts about the implications of these technologies for your company.

Monitoring is the most important weapon against cyber risks and the best tool to identify weak points in the process and make maintenance more effective. At the symposium, practitioners will report on how they extract data from automated machines and systems and evaluate it intelligently. They will find out how this can be used to align maintenance times with actual wear and tear and thus reduce costs. You will also learn how cyber attacks or misconfigurations can be detected with the same measures.

In dialogue with users and experts, you will learn about the advantages and limitations of predictive maintenance in real-world implementation. You will be given concrete options for action on how to use digitalisation to optimise processes while increasing security against cyber risks.

Deggendorf Institute of Technology, ITC2 - Glass House, Dieter-Görlitz-Platz 2, 94469 Deggendorf, Germany


For many years, the legislator has been striving to establish a telematics infrastructure in the German healthcare system. Already today, basic functions such as the insured person master data service have been implemented. Further functions, such as the electronic doctor's letter or the ePrescription, have already been defined. According to the planned eHealth Act II, an electronic health record should also be available to the legally insured by 2021, in order to facilitate communication and coordination between service providers, patients and health insurers by digital means. This is intended to avoid duplicate structures and duplicate examinations and to improve patients' sovereignty in handling their data.

Since 2006, implementation of the telematics infrastructure and the associated digital options has been making slow progress. In 2018, health insurance companies such as Techniker Krankenkasse and AOK will have set up their own electronic health records for their policy holders. 

The relaxation of the ban on remote treatment also opens up new opportunities for online video consultation hours between doctors and patients.

In the DigiCamp the current developments and the attempt of an outlook will be undertaken.

Chatbots - Our communication helpers, 27 March 2019, 2 pm

The communication with customers will change drastically in the next few years. One reason for this are the so-called chatbots. They are currently frequently used in customer service, where they simulate a conversation between the customer on the one hand and the salesperson or the service provider on the other. However, can chatbots show empathy for the customer, perceive upselling potential or answer complex questions? What roles does artificial intelligence play here?

Exactly these topics are discussed with you in our AI working group. Are you a specialist or manager in your company and interested in implementing chatbots? You are a computer scientist or IT specialist and want to support your departments with modern IT solutions? - Then the AI working group is the right place for you!
