In the first 5 weeks of your bachelor studies (1st semester) you will have block courses and a basic lecture. After that, you will start working on your first digitization project and another basic lecture will start. Your study locations in the first bachelor semester are Goslar and Wolfenbüttel. The location of your digitization project depends on the underlying application area. Here you can find a simplified view of your schedule in the 1st semester...
DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES is a cross-university study program. Your studies will therefore take place at the three locations of the Center for Digital Technologies - in Goslar, Clausthal-Zellerfeld and Wolfenbüttel. You will spend your first year of study mainly at the DIGIT Goslar headquarters. The courses take place here at GoTec (right next to DIGIT). Project rooms and laboratories are also available here for the Digi projects.
Depending on your focus and choice of application area, the other locations Wolfenbüttel and Clausthal-Zellerfeld will be added as study locations during the course of your studies.
To commute between the locations, you can use the semester ticket.
In our study program, admission to the program is handled by the central allocation office of the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences, which is why you can apply for a study place exclusively via the application portal of the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences.
