System Accreditation at TUM

TUM was system-acc­re­dited by the Swiss Center of Accreditation and Quality Assu­rance in Higher Edu­cation (OAQ) on 14 May 2014, with no stipu­lations im­posed. The system-accreditation was renewed on 26 June 2020 and is valid through 30 September 2028. It applies to all degree programs that have passed TUM's in­ternal quality management assessment pro­cedures.

The acc­re­ditation procedure essen­tially con­sists of an in­ternal self-eva­luation followed by a se­ries of external app­raisals con­ducted by an agency certified by the Acc­re­ditation Council.

The bench­marks used in this pro­cedure in­clude the 'European Stan­dards and Guide­lines for Quality Assu­rance in Higher Edu­cation' (ESG) as well as the criteria speci­fied by the Standing Con­ference of the Ministers of Edu­cation in Germany (Kultusministerkonferenz, KMK) and the Accreditation Council.

In Bavaria, all bachelor's and master's pro­grams are sub­ject to acc­re­ditation - a pro­vision based on Article 10 of the Bavarian Higher Education Act (Bayerisches Hochschulgesetz).

A list of accredited degree programs is available through the database of the Accreditation Council (in German).
