Collage 150 years of TUM

150 years of TUM – join us in celebrating the Technical University of Munich’s anniversary!

The Technical University of Munich has been shaping the future since 1868. Founded by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, its original purpose was “to bring the igniting spark of science” to the commercial and industrial world. Today, our university ranks among the very best in Europe.

We hope you will pay us a visit during our 2018 anniversary year, when we will be bringing TUM’s history to life and providing glimpses into the future of research. Come and see for yourself what our culture of excellence really means in practice.

And don’t forget to drop by from time to time … You can expect regular updates to the collection of anniversary stories outlining the discoveries and inventions that have shaped 150 years of TUM.
