About us

Whether we are researching the fundamentals of life, matter, and the universe or looking for solutions to the major challenges facing society: Humans are the focal element of research, innovation and teaching at the TUM School of Engineering and Design (ED). Learn more about the faculty at TUM, one of the world's most excellent universities.

In the context of an increasingly dynamic research and science landscape, TUM is systematically developing its transformation process with Agenda 2030. Bringing different faculties together in the ED facilitates collaborations and the strategic take-up of innovations in engineering and design. Following international best practice approaches, TUM is pursuing a fundamental reform to transform the faculty system into an innovation-promoting matrix organization consisting of schools and departments as well as interdisciplinary research centers (Corporate Research Centers, Integrative Research Centers). With the launch of ED on October 1, 2021, TUM is establishing creative opportunities in research, education, and entrepreneurship, dynamic interaction potential, and maintaining the academic diversity and value-giving specifics of individual disciplinary cultures. Bringing different faculties together in the ED will facilitate the collaboration and strategic implementation of innovations in the fields of engineering and design. Supportive administrative and management systems at the school level improve quality, accelerate internal processes, and reduce the workload of researchers.
