The demands in the working world of engineers are very different and are changing rapidly these days. Engineers who are specialised but also have a broad range of knowledge are in demand. The degree programme "Interdisciplinary Engineering Sciences" is your opportunity for a broad-based, challenging engineering education at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. If natural sciences and the desire to understand technology are your thing and you are open to different disciplines, this degree programme is the right choice. Large parts of the degree programme are deliberately kept very fundamentally oriented in order to give graduates the opportunity to understand technical systems in their entirety, not just in technical aspects. The orientation towards the fundamentals provides you with the basis for later flexibility and should give you the skills to master the requirements of the future or to shape your professional interests. The university's technology campus, which is linked to the Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences and Industrial Engineering, offers you unique competences that are incorporated into this degree programme.

Career Prospects

The focus of your professional activity will always be the technical development process of a product, component, material or process, depending on a specific objective. For example, satellite signals must be coordinated in order to be able to navigate optimally here on earth via GPS. Or imagine a scene from your favourite film. Film cameras must be calibrated in such a way that the same impression of brightness is created from every shooting perspective. And what would a film be without a change of perspective?

As an engineer of "Interdisciplinary Engineering Sciences", it is your task to understand the objective, the necessary components, functional principles and their interaction. Usually, before the hardware even exists, it is a matter of specifying a product, component, material or process, making it measurable and verifying it. Showing alternatives via modelling and simulation will also be part of your tasks. That's why the "Interdisciplinary Engineering Scienes" degree programme focuses on the topics of sensor technology, simulation of technical systems and new materials. Because this knowledge is always in demand when modern technical systems are created or are to be equipped with new properties. You can even be involved in the individual development of sensors according to the application.

The framework conditions of your work will usually be activities on the computer as well as in the laboratory. You will work partly on your own responsibility, but also in coordination with your team colleagues. This is another reason why the ability to communicate with a broad technical background is an important competence: in order to clearly define work packages or the corresponding interfaces on which others build, and to document results. As a team player with the ability to take responsibility and the knowledge gained from the degree programme "Interdisciplinary Engineering Sciences", you have the best prerequisites to be successful. You can find a job in many exciting industries: Automotive, aerospace, medical technology, packaging industry, optics, research institutions, sensor technology and electronics and much more: everywhere where the interdisciplinary overall understanding of technical systems and products is important.
