TUM Program Accreditation

The accreditation of bachelor’s and master’s programs was introduced as part of the Bologna Reform. The goal of accreditation is quality assurance. Rather than accrediting each individual program (program accreditation), TUM elected to carry out a system accreditation, which focuses on the university's internal quality management system instead of individual bachelor's and master's programs. Once the University's quality management system has successfully undergone system accreditation, all of it's bachelor's and master's programs are automatically accredited.
