Central Administrative Offices

TUM has established a set of central adminis­trative offices charged with all organi­zational matters pertai­ning to teaching and lear­ning. Every decision and change manage­ment process is handled by advi­sory boards, which promotes transpa­rency and trace­ability, and ensures that all parties concerned are involved from the start.
