The internal training event of the TUM Center for Study and Teaching is aimed in particular at employees in degree program and student management as well as in the examination administrations at TUM’s schools. The InfoForum provides information about the individual work areas of the TUM Center for Study and Teaching and addresses current topics from other units of TUM. The event offers both experienced and new colleagues up-to-date information about studying and teaching at TUM and the opportunity to get to know each other and exchange ideas.

A lot has happened in the Admissions and Enrollment department (ABI) and in the application process in the past year, which we would like to inform you about in this session: We will present the revised ABI organization chart, report on the newly established Academic Evaluation Center (APS) in India, and explain the current application process via TUMonline, for example with regard to the elimination of the Application for Admission form, as well as the search and filter functions of the “My Applications” application.
Dr. Kathrin Dressel (TUM CST – Planning)
The TUM CST department “Planning” continuously evaluates data from the TUM applicant and student statistics and prepares them for the decision-makers at TUM.
In this session, we will present some of these evaluations to you; the focus is on the topic of “internationalization”: We will take a look at the development of student and applicant numbers and show how successful international prospective students are compared to their German counterparts. We are happy to answer questions about student and applicant statistics and show what options are available for accessing this data.

In June 2020, members of the central departments and the schools of TUM came together in the “Onboarding Focus Group” to exchange ideas about suitable formats that could make the start at university easier for the first-year students of the first completely virtual winter semester 2020/21. Since then, the group has been striving to make the experiences of the virtual semesters fruitful for the onboarding of students in the regular and partially hybrid semesters as well.
In our info session, we present exciting best practice examples for a successful start to studies and explain why onboarding formats can be useful into the third or fourth semester.
Dr. André Utrap (TUM CST – Qualitätsmanagement)
For more than eleven years, the degree program documentation has been the central element in TUM's QM system. The first guide to creating degree program documentations was published in May 2011 and has continued to evolve.
In this session, we will take a brief look at the past of the documentation and how it has evolved to its current state, also against the backdrop of the changing accreditation landscape.
The main focus will be on the current requirements and why the degree program documentation is still the key document for all internal accreditation processes at TUM. After a short outlook on what is currently planned or could come as a development, we will try to capture what makes a good degree program documentation, how to avoid typical mistakes, and how problems arise.
Susanna March, Stefan Kögler (TUM CST – Communications)
More than 140 student initiatives shape our university and student life. This commitment is to be promoted even more strongly in the future.
