About the University

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of Europe‚Äôs leading research universities. Several Nobel laureates and inventors such as Rudolf Diesel, Carl von Linde and Rudolf M√∂ssbauer have done research here. In 2006 and 2012, TUM was recognized as a ‚ÄúUniversity of Excellence‚ÄĚ. In international rankings, it regularly places among the best German universities. It also has global reach, with a campus in Singapore and liaison offices spread across several continents.

Studying at a hotbed of research
Students at TUM have the opportunity to study under leading experts in their fields ‚Äď scientists who channel their cutting-edge research insights into their teaching. Individual support is provided to students through various initiatives and mentoring programs. The university has also introduced initiatives specifically to further female students.

In most cases, the university selects its own students. Points scored in the school-leaving examination (Abitur) is not the sole deciding factor ‚Äď the applicants‚Äô suitability for their chosen course also plays an important role. As such, very few courses limit their intake with a numerus clausus (NC).

Research into tomorrow’s challenges
Research at TUM is geared towards key challenges of the future: healthcare and nutrition, energy and raw materials, environment and climate, information and communication, as well as mobility and infrastructure. Numerous high-tech firms were created out of inventions and discoveries made at TUM.

With an American-inspired Tenure Track program, TUM has modernized its careers ladder for professors. It appoints talented academics to the position of assistant professor, with concrete prospects from the very outset of advancing to a tenured full professorship.

Doctoral candidates receive extensive support, including supervision by experienced academics during their research. The TUM Graduate School advances their interdisciplinary qualifications and carves out networking opportunities.
