As an undergraduate student who is studying Bachelor of Mechatronics in the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. I am truly fortunate to be able to receive exceptional education with the help of tremendously supportive professors, lecturers and even officers from the international office. They are always beyond helpful and available in times of need. Living in a historical city like Deggendorf yet surrounded by international students has provided me an incomparable fruitful experience and at the same time, offered me countless inspiring insights into learning divergent cultures.

Academically, DIT has good rankings in Germany and learning structures are really well prepared and professional. All the professors also treat all the students very well. There was no distance between them, so we were free to ask questions and express opinions.


I never regretted choosing Deggendorf University of Applied Sciences. I have learned a lot and gained valuable experience by studying here in an international environment. This was a truly amazing and challenging experience for me, for all exchange students, and even for German students themselves.

I was really amazed about all the new people I got to know. I would have never thought I would get so many friends from all over the world. People were all really nice and pleasant to me. I saw that International Office is really active and is in the most important role in promoting the campus on international scale.


If we look at the environment and the design of the campus, I think this is one of the colleges that has a good environment and is suitable for studying. University Deggendorf is designed to focus not only learn but also to be able to socialize and exchange opinions among individuals in order to get to know one another. Not all campuses have an interesting design like this, and supported by an excellent infrastructure. An excellent infrastructure is also supported by high technology. In the class we have all the technology needed for everyday learning. Not surprisingly, Germany is the famous for its beauty and sophisticated technology, and that is also one of the greatnesses of this campus.
