The institution offers courses in the following disciplines:
- Science & Engineering

DISC uses a study concept that is based on three proven pillars:
- Carefully prepared, written study material with instructions and tips enhances and simplifies learning at your own desk.
- Several courses offered enable you to obtain the required credits via online seminars.
- On-campus events, normally held in Kaiserslautern once per term on a weekend, reinforces the knowledge gained. This is also when examinations are written.
Depending on the course taken, studies conclude with the internationally recognized academic title of "Master" or a graded university certificate from the University of Kaiserslautern.
