Degree program guidelines

At a 1999 conference in Bologna, the EU member states issued a joint declaration aiming to establish a unified European model of higher education. This agree­ment marked a paradigm shift: The Diplom and Magister programs were replaced by bachelor's and master's programs. Courses are now grouped into modules, and academic progress is tracked by means of a credit point system (ECTS). Compara­bility, transfer­ability, and trans­parency are the primary goals of the Bologna Process. 

TUM currently offers more than 150 bachelor's and master's programs. Additional courses of study include: 

  • the advanced studies master’s programs
  • the elite degree programs
  • the international degree programs offered at GIST - TUM Asia
  • the joint degree programs run in cooperation with partner universities
