TU München welcomes more than 10,000 new students
TUM continues to attract ever-growing stream of new talent
TUM continues to attract a record number of new students. This winter semester sees around 6,000 students again commence a bachelor’s or state examination course – just as many as last year.
Particularly sharp increases in new enrolments were reported by the Faculty in Weihenstephan (Center of Life and Food Sciences; up 27%), the teacher training courses (up 12%), and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (up 11%). The most popular bachelor’s degree courses are in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and in Mechanical Engineering, with around 700 first semester students each, followed by Management and Technology, with approximately 650 new students.
The total number of students in the first semester will again exceed the previous year’s intake by 10 percent, since considerably more students are commencing a master’s course (up 26%). Almost half of those commencing a master’s come from universities other than TUM.
TUM now has more students registered than ever before: approximately 35,000. Ten years ago, the figure was only around 20,000; five years ago it was around 23,000.
