As a competitive, international university, TUM is committed to attracting the brightest talent from across the globe, forging alliances with leading universities and companies and maintaining its alumni network. TUM is interested in talent and passion for the sciences – and not where its scientists and students come from.
Which is why the university has significantly increased the number of researchers, lecturers and students from abroad over the past five years. TUM collaborates with around 170 partner universities and approximately 320 Erasmus partners, enabling researchers and students to spend valuable time abroad and gain international qualifications. TUM was the first German university to establish an affiliate outside of Germany with the German Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) – TUM Asia in Singapore. It has also intensified collaboration with strategic partners to address megatrends of the future, for example, as part of the EuroTech Universities alliance. TUM is an international university in the truest sense of the word.
