Good reasons for Digital Heritage Technologies at the University of Bamberg/ University of Coburg

Excellent conditions for study

The University of Bamberg and the University of Coburg enjoy an excellent reputation in the areas of heritage, object and engineering sciences as well as in application-oriented digital technologies. Especially with the "Competence Centre for Heritage Conservation Studies and Technologies" (KDWT), a unique centre has been established in Bamberg. In addition, the Digital Heritage Technologies are now part of the research focus "Digital Humanities and Social Sciences" of the University of Bamberg.

The programme benefits from an outstanding interdisciplinary team at both locations, which is happy to pass on its expert knowledge to the students, as well as from very good technical equipment. A dynamic, market- and research-oriented approach allows us to train specialists with up-to-date knowledge and skills. The programme is officially accredited since October 2019.

During your studies, you will benefit from the expertise of the three disciplines that teach the course: Cultural Heritage Sciences and Applied Computer Science (Cultural Informatics and Media Informatics) in Bamberg and Engineering and Natural Sciences in Coburg.

Due to its size and staffing, the course of studies also offers a very good supervision ratio, there are no waiting times and no anonymity during the studies. You will be closely supervised by the teachers, who always have an open door for you.

The lectures take place at the Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg and at the University of Applied Sciences in Coburg. Students register both as main listeners at the University of Bamberg and as secondary listeners at the University of Coburg and thus receive a semester ticket that enables free commuting between both locations and in the region.

You will be studying in two Franconian student towns with unique charm. The World Heritage city of Bamberg and the royal residence city of Coburg offer a pleasant mixture of historical ambience, lively culture and student flair.


A variety of cooperations and networking make application-oriented profiling and theses about "real" problems possible and support career entry.


The development of our new subject "Digital Heritage Technologies" offers exciting research perspectives, also within the "Competence Centre for Heritage Conservation Studies and Technologies".
