  • Special features regarding teaching
    Internationality, interdisciplinarity and high scientific standards in all degree courses; Basic training in electrical engineering, mathematics and physics in the bachelor’s degree means a wide range of specialisations in the higher bachelor semesters and in the master’s degree; Numerous partner universities around the world; High practical relevance and close links with practice, especially in the higher semesters, industry-oriented equipment for internal university practicals; A wide range of support services is available during the first semesters, e.g. many tutorial exercises and advice services
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The faculty is very active internationally and is involved in many collaborations in research and teaching with international universities, research laboratories and industrial companies. The proportion of international students is around a third and is therefore very high. The department has a particularly active involvement in Singapore in research projects (TUM CREATE) as well as in teaching (Master's degree in ICD, Master's degree in Green Electronics). The faculty has been very successful in attracting EU projects, which is reflected in a total of about 60 projects.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Due to the faculty's generous third-party funding and research strengths, students have the opportunity to work high-end-equipment during engineering and research practicals, theses and as student assistants. As part of the many hands-on projects that are partly funded by tuition fees, facilities, instrumentation and tools are available that permit, research-related work on relevant industry topics, e.g. through a campus-wide MATLAB license.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The faculty reflects its key areas of research in Centers of Competence (CoCs), in which professors and teams with various focuses research current technical issues together. There are currently nine CoCs and these are reflected in the core areas of the Master's courses. Research partners include renowned universities in Germany and abroad, as well as large, non-university research institutions (in Germany, e.g. Max-Planck, DLR, FhG) and industry. The vast majority of research is externally funded.
  • Support for founders
    Many offers in cooperation with UnternehmerTUM, which inspires students to set up companies, e.g. ‘Think Make Start’; Special courses that provide students with important basic skills for business start-ups, e.g. invention, patent, license or courses on labour law, product liability, business start-ups; Special courses on general skills during the bachelor’s degree and master's degree offered by the Carl von Linde Academy.
