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.

Green campus, green degree programmes, sustainability - that is Weihenstephan-Triesdorf

Weihenstephan-Triesdorf is the only university of applied sciences in Germany that has consistently specialised in green engineering degree programmes. All subjects are based on nature, man, and natural resources. From the molecule to the apple, from energy to health, from fields of wheat to spaces to live and landscape areas - in all the degree programmes and university operations the focus is on managing and using natural resources both efficiently and sustainably. 

International research for practical application

All departments at Weihenstephan-Triesdorf conduct research that is interdisciplinary and practice-based in nature and international in scope. 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.

More than simply studying - shaping the future

The aim of research and teaching at Weihenstephan-Triesdorf is the efficient and sustainable management of nature and natural resources. We are actively working on maintaining the fundamentals of life and ensuring sustainable competitiveness. It is with this perspective that we educate and train our students to be responsible engineers, who then have the first-class education and training to be ideally placed for employment both in Germany and abroad.

Student Life

Weihenstephan Campus (Freising)

Freising’s history can be traced back approximately 1,300 years. It may be old, but this lively little town has a lot to offer. With an average population age of about 40 years, it is the ‘youngest’ city in Bavaria.

Not least because many of its approximately 50,000 inhabitants are students. Due to its manageable size, you never have far to go. For example, it is only a ten or fifteen-minute walk from the university to the student halls of residence or the city centre. It is quicker by bike, the primary means of transport for many students.

The combination of a modern science campus, nature, culture and leisure is what makes Freising unique. Scientific teaching and research are brought together on the Weihenstephan campus. The proximity to Munich and the Alpine foothills make it a wonderful place to live and spend your leisure time. During the summer, Freising’s public swimming pool and the nearby lakes and ponds provide ample opportunities for relaxation. The mountains are easily accessible by train, and they offer great opportunities for hiking. During the winter, you can go ice skating, skiing or take part in indoor sports.

Freising also offers a variety of festivals and events – including the open-air ‘Kino am Rang’ cinema week or the Freibierfest (summer beer festival organised by brewing students) on campus, the Altstadtfest (old town festival) and the free Uferlos festival, with concerts and a market.


Triesdorf Campus (Weidenbach)

Weidenbach is situated in the heart of beautiful countryside between the small city of Ansbach and the Franconian Lake District, comprising seven lakes. The district of Triesdorf, the former summer residence of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, is the main attraction of this market town.

Today, Triesdorf is home to an important educational centre (‘Bildungszentrum Triesdorf’) that offers a unique selection of training opportunities in the fields of agriculture, nutrition, food, and environmental / resource protection and management.

The Triesdorf Association for School Pupils and Students (‘Verein Triesdorfer Schüler und Studenten‘ – VTS) organises a varied programme of events for all the area’s educational establishments. These range from regular rock concerts in the ‘Altes Rathaus’ to film weeks, balls and theatre productions.

Student working groups focus predominantly on matters relating to work and study, but also deal with ideological and religious matters. Becoming involved in a working group that looks at a topic you are interested in helps you build contacts in this area much more quickly than you could ever think possible.

An extensive range of sports activities can be enjoyed in Triesdorf, including badminton, archery, football, hockey, swimming, table tennis, volleyball, and yoga. Weidenbach is also connected to regional and national hiking and walking trails. You can explore the scenic landscape on foot or by bike by planning your own walking routes and cycle rides on the well-maintained network of pathways. What’s more, the neighbouring Franconian Lake District offers a variety of water sports. All of this at very low living costs!
