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.
Can you Dig IT?!
"Can you Dig IT?!" is our new podcast. We discuss the latest and most important news around digitalization and deal with the question - what is this digitalization actually?
The Center for Digital Technologies (DIGIT) is a research center 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 members of DIGIT lies in the six fields of application of Autonomous Systems, Circular Economy & Environmental Technology, Digital Transformation, Energy, Industry 4.0 and Mobility.
In the silverLabs, the digitization labs and co-working spaces, DIGIT provides students, pupils and corporate partners with a space where they can forge new ideas together. In 2018, the silverLabs were honored as Southeast Lower Saxony's 1st Digital Place. An exchange with exciting presentations takes place (currently quarterly) as part of the Digital Round Tables.
The DIGIT is also home to DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES, the joint study program of the Clausthal University of Technology and Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences. 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 digitization projects. In addition, students build up skills such as agile project management, quality management and conceptual work (system architecture, modeling) within the project work. By choosing one of the six fields of application of DIGIT, students also define their professional focus and acquire excellent domain knowledge.
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?
