Additional information:
English language proficiency can also be proven by an original document issued by your university stating the medium of instruction during your bachelor studies was English (the confirmation has to be sealed), a GMAT with a score higher than 600, or via the language of instruction in an academic program (e.g. in a bachelor's) by submitting your transcript of records or your degree certificate as evidence (the language of instruction needs to have been English in more than 50% of the program). The MSPE Program expects all students to acquire German language skills until the end of the second semester. You get released from this constraint by providing proof of sufficient German language skills along with your set of application documents (optional). You can acquire German language skills e.g. by attending lectures offered in German language or by taking a dedicated German language course at the TUM Language Center.

Application Documents

Required documents for applying (upload):

  1. Application form: after completing your online application, you will be able to download your application form. Print the form, sign it, and upload it.
  2. Passport.
  3. Preliminary record examination issued by uni-assist for non-EU Applicants (VPD): applicants who have obtained their qualification for postgraduate studies (i.e. a bachelor's degree) in a country outside of the EU/EEA need to have their documents processed by uni-assist. Uni-assist generates a preliminary record examination (VPD), which determines whether applicants qualify for postgraduate studies in Germany. Applicants with a qualification for postgraduate studies obtained in Switzerland do not need a preliminary evaluation. To apply for this preliminary evaluation, please submit your documents to uni-assist e.V within the relevant application period. Please be sure to send your preliminary evaluation to TUM as soon as you receive it. Verification of your documents with uni-assist does not qualify as an application for TUM. You will need to apply to TUM via TUMonline before the relevant application deadline.
  4. Curriculum vitae.
  5. Transcript of records or bachelor's degree (certified): if you have already graduated please upload your bachelor (or equivalent) degree. Otherwise, please submit your latest transcript of records. Your overall grade (CGPA) and the grading system should be clearly visible. This document must be upload as an authenticated copy. If the original document was not issued in German or English, you have to upload an authenticated copy of the translated document (to German or English) as well. However, it is not sufficient to send the translation only.
  6. Statement of purpose: the statement of purpose (letter of motivation) is the cover letter of your application. The layout requirements are one page, DIN A4 or letter format if available, 12pt, single spacing. If you write more than one page you will get fewer points for your letter. It must contain a declaration stating that you wrote it yourself without any auxiliary means other than the ones indicated and that everything you wrote is true to the best of your knowledge. You should write about your purpose and why you are interested in Power Engineering at TUM. State why you think that you are qualified and why the university should select you for the program. In addition, you should also write about your projects, research internships, etc. The statement of purpose has to be written in English, even if you speak German.
  7. Two letters of reference.
