TUM School of Governance

Integrating future technologies into the political dialogue and decision-making: The TUM School of Governance focuses its research and teaching on the interaction between politics, society and technology. This internationally unique model links the social sciences with the core subjects of a Technical University.

Research and teaching profile

The substantive focus areas of the School of Governance within the range of expertise of the Technical University Muncih (TUM) will be concentrated in three areas:

  • Processes of innovation and transformation in the European and global dimensions
  • Interdependencies between technical progress and political processes 
  • Political systems for control and evaluation of technologies and their communication

The faculty will conceive several degree programs in the upcoming months. The School of Governance will also participate in the education of engineers and physical scientists. A Bachelor's degree program will begin in winter semester 2016/17 at the Hochschule für Politik München (HfP) - Bavarian School of Public Policy, combining political science with modules from the technical and life sciences subjects taught at TUM. 

New professorships

In spring 2016, seven new professors were simultaneously appointed to TUM and the Bavarian School of Public Policy (HfP). The double-membership will ensure seamless connection of the research and teaching programs at both institutions. Together with four substantively relevant professorships from the subject spectrum of TUM they now make up the total of eleven founding professorships at the TUM School of Governance:
