Comprised of three campuses in the Munich area, the Technical University of Munich is one of the world’s leading technical research universities, ranking alongside the likes of Cambridge and Oxford in terms of research impact and boasting an impressive eight Nobel Prizes since 1980 alone. The university, founded in 1868, has played a major role in modernizing the Bavarian region’s economy. In addition to its commitment to world-class research, TUM emphasizes the importance of international study: out of its approximately 30,000 students, nearly 20% are international students. Though German is the primary language of instruction, many master’s degrees and some undergraduate courses are offered in English.
TUM is located in Munich, Germany, a city of around 1.3 million. It is situated in the southeast corner of Germany north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is a very historical, beautiful and culturally-rich city with lots to offer. Students would also have the chance to ski in the Alps since they are so near. Germany is the seventh largest country in area in Europe, with a total area of 356,970 sq. km. The earliest inhabitants of Germany were the wandering hunters and gatherers about 4,000 years ago. Germany has 3 major natural regions: a lowland plain (north), an area of uplands (central), and a mountainous area (south).
