Description

The Technical University of Munich was originally known as the Royal Bavarian Polytechnic of Munich when it was founded in 1868. Specialising in the natural sciences, several inventors have studied at the institution, including Carl von Linde, who invented the refrigerator, and Rudolf Diesel, who conceived the diesel engine. In addition, 13 of the university’s professors or alumni have been made Nobel laureates since 1927. The most recent recipients include Gerhard Ertl, a former lecturer at the institution who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2007, and alumnus Wolfgang Ketterle, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2001. In 2014, 165 inventions were made by scientists at the university, while in 2015, 69 patents were submitted. The institution is also home to five Humboldt professors – academics who are internationally recognised in their field – while 18 Leibniz prizes gave been awarded to its scientists since 1987. The university has more than 400 buildings across three campuses in the state of Bavaria: Munich, Garching, and Weihenstephan. The institution is spilt into 13 departments, and also has an Olympic park and university hospitals. In 2002 it opened a campus in Singapore called the German Institute of Science and Technology – TUM Asia. It includes master’s degrees and training programmes for professionals. In 2006 the university launched a new institutional strategy, positioning itself as “The Entrepreneurial University”. More than 800 start-ups have been developed by students and staff at the institution. Its mission statement is: “We invest in talents. Recognition is our return.” Wolfgang Hermann, who became president of the institution in 1995, is the longest-serving leader of a German university.

I am a current master (EI) student at TUM in the field of neuroengineering. At TUM, you have a broad spectrum of courses with different focuses and concepts. One of my favorite courses was Clinical Applications of Computational Medicine, where I did project work [in small teams] following my initial ideas. Positive is the concept of teaching (not only in this specific course); the professors leave a lot of space for our individual ideas and give a big support to fulfill our whole potential. I didn't experience micromanaging in any way and I am happy to be student at TUM.

I’m doing my master's degree at TUM and in my opinion it was not as good as I expected. There were too little seminars and assignments during the semester, and we only have exams at the end. What I liked the most about it so far was the single seminar I had, about contemporary issues in financial accounting and auditing. Even with some downsides I would still recommend it to a friend, because it is still an amazing program. For example I had subjects like Management Accounting, Asset Management and Technical Mechanics, which shows how broad scope it covers (business, finance and engineering). There are several campuses: the one for Management is in the city center with one of the best views, the technological campus is 40 min outside of Munich and quite new. Unfortunately in Munich it’s not easy to find accommodation and the support is very limited since everyone is in need. There are many nice initiatives like different clubs and some parties organized by them every once in a while. Munich is awesome, kinda expensive in general but totally worth the price! Parks and lakes make it even better during summer. Nightlife is also expensive but very good. My advice for new students is to look for a flat with a long time in advance and be prepared with a big budget.

The uni is quite good with various study options. Application process is very smooth and uni has high ratio of foreign students. Most of the faculties are in the outside of the city which is called as Garching.

World-class teaching in a world-class environment, that's pretty much it. In my opinion, here the rankings do reflect reality well. Lots of subjects you can choose from, great facilities, and the quality of teaching is also generally quite good. In terms of the city itself, Munich is just great in all seasons, in the very centre of Europe and full of things to do and see, festivals and culture. The university though, is located outside of town (25 mins away from the centre), which should be considered.

After 10 months of filing my lawsuit, first reply came from legal team of TUM Center for Study and Teaching. There are few incompetent lawyers in this team. They don't know how to do their work properly as well as they don't value contribution of student for an excellent university.
