studying at campus cham

Campus Cham is growing rapidly. After only one Bachelor's degree programme was offered in the first years of its existence, the number of students has increased immensely in recent years with the expansion of the range of courses. There are now around 500 young people studying at the newest campus of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology in Cham. 

As at DIT's two other campuses, internationality is also a priority in Cham. Just under a quarter of the students come from Germany. The remaining students are a colourful mix. There are currently students from 25 nations at the Cham campus - and the trend is rising.

What is special about the Campus Cham is that its students are offered a continuous professional perspective. After the undergraduate Bachelor's programme in Mechatronics and Project Management for Digital Production, which is offered in German, graduates can choose from three consecutive Master's programmes in English - the Masters in Mechatronic and Cyber-Physical SystemsArtificial Intelligence for Smart Sensors and Actuators and Applied AI for Digital Production Management.

The new Bachelor's and Master's programmes have been aligned with the most current issues in the fields of mechatronics and artificial intelligence in order to meet the increasing demand on the labour market. Industry 4.0, Additive Manufacturing, Smart Factory, IOOT, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Robotics, Smart Sensors and Actuators, Machine Learning, Big Data, Data Analysis, Autonomous Systems - these keywords are just a few examples to show the broad spectrum of study content.

Everything under one roof. Students at the Campus Cham benefit enormously from the campus' close relationship with regional and national companies in the field of mechatronics. Both the Research and Development Centre (Technology Campus), the Digital Start-up Centre Cham, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce as well as parts of the Competence-Network in Eastern Bavaria are located next door to the Cham Campus. This synergy of theory and practice is unique and enables students to learn in an application-oriented and scientific way in equal measure.

The individual support at the Cham campus is unique. Studies take place in personal supervision in small study groups. In the application process, an aptitude test is conducted for the Master's programmes in order to create a homogeneous study environment. The administration is also flexible and pursues an open-door policy to make it easier for international students in particular to settle in. This was confirmed during the accreditation of the study programmes. Online learning was already implemented before the special Corona situation - be it in terms of eLectures, eAssessments or eTraining - and continuously developed further. Due to the topicality of the study content, a large number of experts from professional practice support the teaching at Campus Cham.


The purpose of this association is to promote the Technology Campus Cham, in particular to raise funds for

  •     the promotion of science and research
  •     the support of student assistance and the support of students in need for charitable purposes in the sense of § 53 AO

We appreciate your interest and support in achieving this goal.

labs & Projects at campus cham




The electrical engineering laboratory provides a wide range of lab and work stations for experiments, practical courses, final theses as well as research projects. Particular emphasis is placed on classic electrical engineering and metrology. Amongst others, a learning factory of Industry 4.0 with cloud connection and PLC is ready for students to experiment and gain practice experience "in a playful way".






The Embedded / IoT (Internet of Things) Laboratory on Campus Cham provides students with an opportunity to work on projects dealing with the development of embedded systems and IoT applications. Embedded systems are computers integrated in other appliances to control or monitor those. The lab focuses on connecting appliances and sensors with the network and developing IoT applications that collect and analyse data as well as transfer results yielded back to the control.
