The Technical University of Munich (TUM) ranks among Europe’s most outstanding universities in research and innovation – an achievement powered by its distinctive character as the Entrepreneurial University.
TUM’s unparalleled range of disciplines covers engineering, management and social sciences, natural sciences, life sciences and medicine – a combination found nowhere else in Europe. TUM leverages this enormous potential by intensively and intelligently combining the different subjects. This inspires modern fields of research extending from bioengineering to machine intelligence. At the same time, TUM links technological change more closely with economic, social, and ethical issues than other technical universities.
Its outstanding degree programs are strongly oriented towards research and, at the same time, tightly coupled to practical experience. Managers regularly choose TUM as one of the best universities worldwide for the quality of graduates (Global Employability University Rankings).
No other German university produces more start-up founders – the result of a support infrastructure unrivalled in Europe. TUM also builds long-term research partnerships with the most innovative global players. More and more companies are establishing roots directly on campus.
TUM is an international university with a high proportion of foreign students and researchers as well as more than 150 partner universities around the globe. With the founding of TUM Asia in 2002 in Singapore, it became the first German university to establish an overseas campus. TUM also has offices in Brussels, Mumbai, Beijing, San Francisco, and São Paulo.
TUM was awarded the title of University of Excellence in 2006, 2012, and 2019 in recognition of its innovative, dynamic culture.
