True to our origins, ever since the Technische Universitat Munchen was founded as a "polytechnic school" at the heart of Europe in 1868, we have played an active role in transforming Bavaria from an agricultural state to a high-tech location. Rooted in this tradition we created a powerful international network. We are now an international university. One in every four undergraduates within a total student body of approximately 20,000 comes from abroad. The four-leaf clover symbolises our scientific spectrum: natural sciences, engineering sciences, medicine, life sciences.
In our capacity as an up-to-date entrepreneurial university, we pin our hopes on the vast range of human skills, identifying and sponsoring talent. We create teams by pooling new strengths. This leads to top performance and supports Corporate Identity.
