Founded in 1868 by King Ludwig II, Technische Universität München (TUM) has long established itself as a premier institute of higher learning in Germany. Ranked as Germany’s number 1 university in the 2011 & 2012 Shanghai Ranking (ARWU), TUM has earned itself the reputation of being an institute that produces world-changing technologies. Some notable inventions from the TUM alumni include the refrigeration technology invented by Carl von Linde; the Dornier airplane by Claude Dornier; and the diesel engine, invented by Rudolf Diesel. To date, TUM has seen a total of 13 Nobel Prize Laureates come through its ranks, including distinguished chemists and physicists such as Ernst Otto Fischer and Rudolf Mößbauer.
As the first German academic venture abroad, TUM Asia opened its doors in 2002 and this year will mark a decade of excellence in Singapore. Though situated in an Asian country, the academic model employed by TUM Asia is nevertheless German in its roots, with an emphasis on industry readiness and innovation. Since 2002, TUM Asia has been running joint Master Programmes conferred by TUM, with NTU and NUS. The students have access to a diverse range of professors who are among the best in their field of expertise, as well as possessing a wealth of industry experience. The Master of Science in Industrial Chemistry is the longest running programme, with 10 successful intakes and 9 graduate batches to date. Through the years, programmes such as Integrated Circuit Design, Microelectronics, Aerospace Engineering ad Transport and Logistics have been added to the list of offered programmes.
TUM Asia also collaborates with Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), offering 2 Bachelor programmes - Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology; and Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. 2012 marked TUM Asia’s 10th year in Singapore and there are plans in the works to launch more Master and Bachelor programmes that continue to be industry-focused and in tune with the needs of the global economy.
