The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the TUM has been at the forefront of achievements in engineering since 1868. The Department is now one of the most successful mechanical engineering departments in the world and has occupied top places in international rankings for the past several years.
School of Medicine
„Knowledge creates cure“ – this is the guiding principle of the medicine at TUM. It represents the very close link between medical research and patient care: here, the patient will benefit as directly as possible from new discoveries by physicians and scientists. The patient needs experienced by physicians in their daily work in turn affect the objectives of research projects. Thus physicians and scientists of Klinikum rechts der Isar and TUM School of Medicine work hand in hand in being able to offer both patients of today and those of tomorrow the best possible help.
With this philosophy, medicine at TUM is internationally successful: Klinikum rechts der Isar and TUM School of Medicine together stand for medicine with a worldwide reputation - in patient care, research and education.
The Faculty of Physics comprehends three research areas as well as many central services. It is complemented by partner and interdisciplinary research institutions and takes part in a number of major projects.
Department of Sport and Health Sciences
We offer a broad, interdisciplinary, scientific portfolio ofteaching and research in these two fields of science. The spectrum extends from the holistic support of top athletes, such as the National Ski Team, for instance, or in diagnosing the performance of professional soccer players from the record champions of FC Bayern Munich, and up to the prevention and rehabilitation in the context of civilization illnesses over the entire lifetime.
For the training of students we offer a total of twelve courses of study for bachelor, master and teacher qualification. Included here are the two Bachelor's courses of study in "Sport sciences" and "Health sciences" (Bachelor of Science) as well as the Master's courses of studies in "Diagnostics and training" and in "Movement and health" (Master of Science). In addition, we also train athletic trainers for all forms of schooling. With "TUM Sport and Health for Life" and the Master's course in "Traditional Chinese Medicine", we offer diverse training and further-education possibilities.
School of Education
TUM School of Education is the thirteenth TUM faculty, and the very first faculty in Germany to be dedicated entirely to initial and further training of teachers in the
subjects of mathematics, computer studies, science and technology (the so-called MINT subjects).
The faculty calls itself a School as it is modeled on the professional schools at American universities. Like these, it has the following defining characteristics:
- Interdisciplinary approach: teaching and research are carried out on a cross-disciplinary basis.
- Practically oriented: since there is an extensive cluster of schools, students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom from the very beginning.
- Joint appointments: professors from specialist subject departments can also be assigned to the TUM School.
As a separate faculty, TUM School of Education retains its independence within the university and can therefore provide optimum support to meet the needs of trainee teachers.
School of Management
TUM School of Management at Technical University of Munich (TUM) carries out world-class research and teaching at the interface between management and technology. Established in 2002, we consistently top the rankings of business schools in Germany.
TUM School of Management's interdisciplinary approach is focused on the interface between management and technology. We have almost 30 full professors and 250 other staff members who work in the School's own departments.
