Studying DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES
... is the joint study program of TU Clausthal and Ostfalia University. The program combines the subjects of computer science with our application areas and exciting digitization projects.
The Center for Digital Technologies (DIGIT) is a research centre of Clausthal University of Technology in cooperation with Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences. Here, professors from both universities work together with industry to shape the digital transformation of sustainable industrial processes. The research focus of the DIGIT members lies in the six fields of applications of Autonomous Systems, Circular Economy & Environmental Technology, Digital Transformation, Energy, Industry 4.0 and Mobility.
Innovations for a digital and sustainable future are created at DIGIT. We would like to engage in exchange with our partners from business and science, students and pupils and offer a variety of transfer formats for this purpose. These consist, for example, of our workshops, our digitization podcast "Can you Dig IT?!" and our digitisation labs and co-working spaces. We also invite all interested parties to exchange ideas with our DIGIT.Community on topics of digitisation and sustainability in a relaxed after-work atmosphere at the DIGIT.RoundTable.
DIGIT is also home to the joint study programme of Clausthal University of Technology and Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES. From the very first semester, students can expect an exciting mix of basic computer science subjects and a high level of practical relevance through the application of learned basic knowledge within the interdisciplinary digitisation projects. In addition, students build up skills such as agile project management, quality management and conceptual work (system architecture, modelling) within the project work. By choosing one of the fields of applications of DIGIT, students also determine their professional focus and acquire excellent domain knowledge.
TU Clausthal research presented at HICSS 2022
Sebastian Lawrenz and colleagues presented their second iteration of a concept for developing a data marketplace at HICSS 2022.
Implementing the Circular Economy by Tracing the Sustainable Impact
The concept of the Circular Economy has been around since the 1990s. But what is the status quo today, what are the main obstacles to implementing the concept, and how can a social rethink be achieved?
