The Bioengineering (Sciences) department at Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences stands for scientifically sound, applied teaching - with a view to the professional profile of an engineer. This teaching is based on an understanding of biological principles in order to utilise them in a targeted and sustainable manner. Our professionally qualifying Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes are characterised by direct practical relevance and sound knowledge. A total of around 700 students study at our department.

At the Faculty of Bioengineering (Sciences), you can study for a Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology, Brewing and Beverage Technology or Applied Computer Science or opt for the Biotechnology Master's programme.

All Bachelor's degree programmes include an internship semester, which, like our final theses, is usually completed in industry or research institutions. Around 100 students go abroad every year. The demands of our degree programmes are high, but the career prospects in the relevant sectors are excellent.
