From 26 August to 1 September, 20 students from German foreign and language diploma schools will receive an exclusive insight into the STEM study programmes (in German: MINT - mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) as part of the TU9-ING week.

TU9, the alliance of leading technical universities in Germany, is organizing for the eighth time a week of trial studies under the title "TU9-ING-Week" for students from German schools abroad and language schools wishing to take up technical or scientific studies in Germany. All pupils of the 11th and 12th grades could apply. The prerequisite was very good grades in the MINT subjects and German - and of course a special interest in technical and engineering sciences. The TU9 currently has cooperation agreements with 102 German foreign and language schools.

Since 2011, the trial study week has been held alternately at one of the nine TU9 universities every year. From 26 August to 1 September 2018, the Technical University of Munich will host the TU9-ING Week. 

A FULL PROGRAM

The 20 students will come to Germany this year from 17 countries. They can look forward to a varied programme at the TUM: workshops, department visits, campus tours and study counselling give a profound insight into MINT studies in Germany. Excursions to the Maier-Leibnitz Laboratory, to UnternehmerTUM, the Centre for Innovation and Foundation at the TUM and to the high-tech workshop "MakerSpace" as well as a factory tour at BMW are also on the programme. The trial study days are rounded off by guided city and museum tours and networking events.


The trial study week is part of the support initiative for German schools abroad and partner schools (BIDS) of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and is partly financed by the Federal Foreign Office.
