No institution can stand alone and we are devoted to developing our network of trusted partners in Europe and the World. To bring TUM closer to international opportunities and talents, but also to support the TUM community in fostering relationships with key strategic regions in the world, TUM has opened offices in Beijing, Brussels, Cairo, Mumbai, San Francisco and São Paulo. Our offices are instrumental in keeping us engaged with our growing network of international partners and alumni. True to the spirit of an entrepreneurial university, in 2002, TUM was the first German university to open a campus abroad. TUM Asia has in the meantime grown into a vibrant offshore campus offering Bachelor’s and Master’s programs with important partners in Singapore.

At TUM we believe that internationalization is more than a set of initiatives. We are committed to fostering a global mindset that permeates all TUM activities. We embrace and celebrate our diversity and the potential for technology and science to be relevant in all corners of the world – from the most advanced to the most challenged ones: TUM without Borders reflects  our students’ and scientists’ growing commitment to work on solutions for communities from Nepal to Zambia.

The International Center is your central hub to learn about a world of opportunities - in every sense of the word – and how to make the world at home in Munich. We are delighted to help you learn about and engage with a range of TUM’s international activities, and explore the welcoming and global sides of TUM.
