Claim Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf - University of Applied Sciences


Alumni talks

Former students talk about their career path since graduating, present their current jobs and projects and give advice to current students.

This format aims to enable knowledge-sharing between alumni, students, teaching staff, employees and other stakeholders.

Due to the current situation, all talks will be held online via Zoom. Several talks will be recorded and will be available in our new Alumni Portal shortly afterwards. You can find more information about access details and data protection from the individual event announcements in the "Termine" section of the alumni portal or in the "Veranstaltungen" section at our German website.

It’s finally here – our new online alumni portal has just gone live. Take a look here.

Later today, all previously registered users who have agreed to the transfer of their data will receive an automated and time-delayed invitation email including an individual link to activate their profile and choose a new password. Once the alumni management team has activated and granted access to your profile, you can make full use of the portal. You must be logged in to see a lot of the content.

If you are not yet a member, why not take this opportunity and register in just a few quick steps? Simply follow the link above and click 'Erstmalig registrieren' (Register for the first time).

PLEASE NOTE: Since the new portal uses an external software provider, we have updated our terms of use and privacy notice. You can find the document here as a PDF on our homepage. Please read it through carefully.

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences Alumni Team by email at alumni[at] or by phone on (+49) (0) 8161 / 71 4507
