Study Green Digital Engineering & become a Master of Engineering

Digitalisation makes an important contribution to mastering the major challenges of our time: progressive climate change, sustainable land use, limited resources, independent energy production, lower production costs and organic food.

With the new skills from the Green Digital Engineering degree programme, you can contribute to achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)! Learn to develop, evaluate, optimise and implement digital processes. In this Master's degree programme, you can deepen your knowledge in the field of digitalisation in a unique way.

The most important skills you will acquire during your studies are

  1. Capture, transfer & store data using sensors
  2. Evaluate & assess data according to technical criteria
  3. Develop sensor & data transmission systems

Green Digital Engineering: course content in the Master's programme

The Master's degree programme in Green Digital Engineering (MDE) forms the interface between computer science and applied life sciences as well as green engineering sciences. The content is orientated along the "data" value chain: Data collection, data transfer and data analysis. You will also learn methods for analysing and optimising processes through the use of sensor technology - with the aim of increasing sustainability.

The first two semesters include modules and project studies on the following topics:

  • Data acquisition & data research
  • Data transmission & management
  • Data processing & modelling (including AI)
  • Project & personnel management

The full-time programme concludes in the 3rd semester with the Master's thesis and a colloquium.

Admission requirements for the Green Engineering degree programme

These admission criteria apply to the Master Green Digital Engineering at the University of applied sciences Weihenstephan-Triesdorf:

  • Bachelor' s degree from Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences or an equivalent degree from a domestic or foreign university or college in the field of applied life sciences or green engineering, computer science, mechatronics or related fields.
  • Bachelor's degree with at least 180 ECs or without ECs if this is equivalent
  • German language skills (foreign students whose native language is not German): language certificate B2

Applications for the Master's degree programme Green Digital Engineering are made online. The application period for the summer semester is from the beginning of December to 15 January and for the winter semester from the beginning of May to 15 July.

Prospective students who have obtained their first degree abroad require a "preliminary examination documentation" (VPD) from uni-assist to apply for the Green Digital Engineering degree programme. You can find detailed information on our website for international applicants. Submitting a uni-assist test report is not sufficient!

Green Digital Engineering: Your advantages

  • Can be studied without prior knowledge of computer science - open to anyone with a green Bachelor's degree
  • high practical and application-oriented component - (almost) no module without an inclusive internship or exercise component as well as the implementation of project studies
  • practice-oriented learning & research at the Triesdorf Education Centre thanks to facilities such as workshops, laboratories & experimental areas around the campus as well as the Competence Centre for Digital Agriculture (KoDA)
  • Study in a familiar & international environment in a rural area, where the fields of application are right next door and rents are still low
  • Interdisciplinary & cross-location - professors from several departments involved
  • Advance digitalisation - heading in a forward-looking direction with the Master's degree, AI & Co.
  • Optimisation through digitalisation: form the interface between computer scientists and users.
