The Technical University of Munich or Technische Universität München (TUM) is a first class research university with campuses in Munich, Garching, and Weihenstephan located in the German state of Bayern.
The University has a sound international reputation and like many German universities, is a non campus university. However, with further expansion plans for the Garching site, more and more departments are to be placed into new buildings in Garching. The Garching campus, unlike the downtown area, is set up more like a traditional quadrangle style campus with a large grouping of buildings.
Established in 1868 by King Ludwig II of Bavaria as the Polytechnische Schule München, it was reanamed Technische Universität München in 1970. Today, successful research collaborations with internationally recognised companies such as Siemens, BMW, and Audi contribute to expediting the transfer of knowledge and technology into the German economy.
