Study abroad unit(s)

Programme overview:
  • Months 1-10: lectures, laboratory work and industry excursions in Singapore
  • Months 11-12: two-month internship at a company (in Singapore, Europe, etc.)
  • Months 13-18: six-month Master's thesis in Singapore or Germany, at TUM or in a company
  • Months 18-24: Students who choose the Railway Engineering specialisation are required to complete this additional six-month semester at TUM's main campus in Munich.

All students may complete an additional semester in TUM, resulting in an addition of a three-month break and a six-month semester at TUM prior to the internship.
The student can choose any module from all faculties in TUM, subject to the approval from the faculties and registration process via TUM Asia, and visa approval.

Internships

After two (or three) semesters of coursework, all students have to complete a (minimum) two- or three-month internship with the industry or with an academic institution. It is required for the student to complete an internship related to his or her field of study at TUM Asia.

One can secure an internship in Singapore, Germany, or in any other country in Asia, Europe or the rest of the world. Students who have secured a scholarship with their sponsoring company will conduct their internship in the company (this can be conducted in any branch of the company worldwide). Students without an industrial sponsorship are to look for internships independently. It is expected that all students take an active approach in this search for internships. TUM Asia will help provide students with any possible internship opportunities, but students are to lead the search for internships on their own.

Forms of assessment

Each module has a continuous assessment and a final exam. We use a credit point system. The final transcripts contain both international and German grading.

Course objectives

As a professional with the MSc in Transportation and Logistics, it is possible to start a career in many different areas of the logistics and transportation sector. Some examples include the following career areas and job possibilities:

Accommodation

It is not easy to find a place to live in Munich - but it is not impossible either! TUM supports students and employees in their search for accommodation, providing personal advice, in-house listings and useful information to ensure that you can quickly find a place to call your own: http://www.tum.de/en/university-life/accommodations/
With high rents and not enough rooms in halls of residence, the Munich rental market is one of the most competitive in Germany - especially for students. The city boasts over 1.4 million inhabitants, with more people moving to Munich every year - many of them attracted by the excellent study opportunities that Munich has to offer.
Student halls of residence usually offer affordable accommodation for students. The Munich Student Union runs most of these halls of residence - more information at http://www.studentenwerk-muenchen.de/en/accommodation/
