Graduation Ceremony Deggendorf Institute of Technology on January 31st 2020

For all graduates who finished their studies in 2019, there was a new feature this year: the big graduation ceremony of DIT!

The graduates of 2019 were the first class to enjoy our newly designed graduation ceremony. The Alumni Office organised a big graduation ceremony for 31.01.2020 together with Master students of media technology. AlumniNet e.V. was also on site and dressed the graduates in style with a doctoral cap and gown for their big appearance. Each individual received “their special moment” and was bid farewell on the big stage by the Dean of the respective faculty and the President of the THD, Prof. Dr. Peter Sperber.

The celebration with more than 400 graduates and 1100 guests took place with all the pomp and glory one could wish for a graduation. We spared no expense and effort to prepare a special day for the graduates. The time distance to graduation also made this day a first reunion.

After the graduation ceremony, the graduates had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious 4-course meal with their family and former fellow students at the Zenger Dorfwirt in Neuhausen.

We were very happy to welcome so many graduates! Congratulations on passing your bachelor oder master’s degree and all the best for the future!



Graduation ceremony of the graduates of ECRI in Pfarrkirchen on 11.10.2019

In October another graduation ceremony for the graduates of the European Campus Rottal-Inn took place in Pfarrkirchen.
This time, a total of 42 graduates from the Master Medical Informatics, Master International Tourism Management, Bachelor International Tourism Management and Industrial Engineering courses were able to leave. Among the graduates was also the very first graduate of the Bachelor of Industrial Engineering. In addition to greetings from Edeltraud Plattner, representing the city of Pfarrkirchen and the district of Rottal-Inn, Dean Prof. Steckenbauer also welcomed the graduates. According to personal words of various professors, the graduates were allowed to step forward individually. Prof. Steckenbauer and the respective course coordinators presented them with a certificate and a rose. The celebration was also accompanied musically by an electric piano. The ceremony was followed by a pleasant get-together with a buffet and drinks, during which the graduates and their companions were able to review their studies.

We wish the graduates all the best for their future!

Launch of the AlumniNet App

In the beginning of this semester AlumniNet launched its very own App.

The App is for members of AlumniNet only. It connects alumni and students. Furthermore, the App illustrates our network and users are listed in the app according to their study program or the company they are working at. This makes networking and communication among members much easier and more up to date. The App also acts as one single platform that combines  events, news and contacts from DIT, ECRI and our alumni in one application.

With the launch of the AlumniNet App there was also a price competition with weekly prices and one main price in the end. The price competition was open to all users of the App. Prices were for example vouchers of Therme Erding, Semester-Beginner-Sets from the DIT shop and a Samsung Galaxy Tablet as the main price.

And these are the lucky winners:

If you haven’t got the App yet, you can register here for the AlumniNet App. Every member who downloads the app gets an AlumniNet Display Cleaner.

The app works on Apple and Android devices. You can download the app in the Apple Store or in the Google Play Store. As soon as the registration is through you can get started with the app.

If you face any problems with the registration or the app, you’ll find a manual on how to install the app and how to use it here.


Prom 2018

AlumniNet e.V. invited all graduates of Deggendorf Institute of Technology to the annual Prom on November 17th, 2018.

The Prom took place in the evening after the Dies Academicus. The band “ALIBI” played ballroom music and the guests enjoyed the evening while dancing a lot.

During the show part of the Prom the group of salsa dancers around dance instructor Sofian animated the guests to dance with them and the salsa dancers also showed some dance performances.

After the show part with the salsa dancers the mood among the guests was really good and everybody partied until late at night.
