Viewing itself as a servant of society, the Technical University of Munich is committed to innovative progress in scientific fields, ensuring sustainable improvement in the lives and coexistence of people. Out of its sense of responsibility for future generations, it has established the following interdisciplinary research areas: Health &Nutrition – Energy & Raw Materials – Environment & Climate – Information & Communications – Mobility & Infrastructure.
The Technical University of Munich orientates itself scientifically, structurally, and organizationally according to the highest international standards. It is therefore part of a global network. For its benchmarks, it draws on international alliances with leading teaching and research facilities. With its "Emerging Field Policy," it opens up new fields of development between science and industry.
We view "internationality" as the link between our homeland and the world. Based on the liberal set of values of an enlightened society, cosmopolitanism includes respect for the cultural identity of people in other regions of the world. With our international presence in science and technology, we want to foster further understanding between nations.
Young talent stands at the center of the Technical University of Munich. They shape the future. We support our youth in the development of their individual talents and capabilities through their integration into the environment of experienced scientific professionals. Our educational goals include conferring professional expertise, good judgment, and a sense of responsibility. Mental and emotional creativity, cultural sensitivity, and social skills are as important to us as professional sovereignty and entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage the most gifted young scientists, in particular, through participation in the TUM: JUNGE AKADEMIE, the TUM GRADUATE SCHOOL and the TUM INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY.
