Profile

Green, innovative, and practical - Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences in a nutshell. Since it was founded in 1971, it has developed a unique profile. No other university of applied sciences has a comparable range of subjects so clearly and consistently oriented towards green subjects. Uniquely in Bavaria, the degree programmes cover everything to do with nature, food, and the environment in the very broadest sense, ranging from the scientific to the artistic, from high-tech to Land Art, from molecules via trees through to landscape areas.

Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences is split into two sections, Weihenstephan and Triesdorf, which between them are home to seven Departments.

All Departments at Weihenstephan-Triesdorf conduct research that is interdisciplinary and practice-based in nature and international in scope. All Departments collaborate closely with one another, and we are continuing to expand our collaboration with other universities of applied sciences both in Germany and abroad. As a partner to business and industry, we focus on applied research and deliver results with practical relevance in collaboration with them. These results in turn feed back into the education and training of our students and allow us to keep the content of our programmes up-to-date and relevant in practice. Quality management is a fundamental principle of our university of applied sciences. 

President Prof. Dr. h.c. Hermann Heiler
