About

History

Ever since its founding in 1868, TUM has been at the forefront of innovation. TUM scientists today have the same goal as their 19th century counterparts: finding solutions to the major challenges facing society as we move forward. TUM was founded to provide the state of Bavaria with a center of learning dedicated to the natural sciences.

Education

For the third time in a row, the TUM won the title of "Excellence University" in July 2019. This makes TUM the only technical university that has been consistently successful in the excellence competition of the federal and state governments from the beginning (2006).

Research

Whether exploring the fundamentals of life, matter, and the universe, or seeking solutions to the major challenges of society, we are at the center of our research and innovation agenda. The "Human-Centered Engineering" aims as a far-reaching reform concept to guide the scientific and technical excellence of the TUM into the world of ideas of a modern society.

Student Reviews

Don't study here/at this faculty
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's a pity you have to give at least a one-star rating. This university doesn't deserve any. Universities are meant to teach and encourage studying. Our faculty does neither. While different people are entitled to their different opinions, it is a fact that no professor at this university is chosen based on anything related to teaching. I don't know if this is common...

Hard work pays off
