Program Details

Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts was officially founded in 1971. The prime focus of the university has ever since been study and teaching geared towards practical problem-solving, cementing the link between theory and practice. 

The Master’s program in Digital Transformation delivers the competencies to shape the digital change with a focus on technology, while not neglecting the need to consider the relevant business models and the socioeconomic impact. Digital transformation is changing society and industry at a tremendous pace. The change is manifold, and the education of the experts for mastering the change has to cover a very diverse spectrum.

The program is inherently interdisciplinary. Graduates are prepared to work in very dynamic, diverse, and agile teams to find solutions that really benefit people, society, and industry. This involves a very solid first pillar of the curriculum in software engineering with the relevant processes, methods, and tools. Furthermore, as a second pillar, students become experts in designing and applying digital systems. A strong focus on user-centered development processes that involve the people as coproducers is the third pillar of the competency model. Modules on transversal skills and a focus on project work give our students competencies with high relevance for the job market and a hands-on attitude.

The program is taught in English (with a bilingual option in German), and the classroom is very international. Within the various projects, students will learn to work in an international team. An exchange program with European partner universities for different electives supports this international concept.
