TUM has maintained partnerships with some of the most prestigious Indian universities since 2001. From 2011 on, TUM has been present in India with a representative as a first contact point for interested students and scientists.
In November 2014 TUM established its own liaison office at the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce in Mumbai. Additionally, TUM is a member of the German House for Research and Innovation New Delhi (DWIH), the main association of German scientific organizations in India.
TUM Mumbai acts as an interface between India and TUM. The liaison office was launched to further raise TUM’s visibility and strengthen its international reputation as one of Europe’s leading universities.
TUM Mumbai is one of six liaison offices in addition to Beijing, Brussels, Cairo, São Paulo and San Francisco. Already in 2002, TUM established its own offshore campus TUM Asia in Singapore. The expansion of a global presence is part of the initiative TUM Global, a core piece of TUM's institutional strategy which was part of its successful application within the German Excellence Initiative.
