As on the second Friday in July every year, the TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering will be celebrating the end of the academic year with various different ceremonies. Taking centre stage will be those students who are graduating from their Master degree course or receiving their doctorate. We will be celebrating their achievements and saying a ceremonial farewell to them. In the evening there will be a glittering ball with accompanying buffet.

Join us on 13.07.2018 at the traditional Department Day in the Mechanical Engineering Building!

150 Years Department of Mechanical Engineering

150 Years Department of Mechanical Engineering

Founded in 1868 as the Mechanical-Technical Department of the Polytechnic School in Munich, the TUM Department of Mechanical Engineering can look back on an impressive success story. The exhibition, 150 Years Department of Mechanical Engineering will show impressively, with presentation boards and exhibits arranged according to subject areas, the innovative capability of the department and its chairs, that has always accompanied the enormous changes in technology, science and society. Numerous historical and present-day exhibits will illustrate this innovation.

The exhibition will be on display in the Magistrale of the department building from 3 May to 10 June 2018 and in the TUM examination hall from 5 May to 14 June 2018.

A report about the exhibition opening and some impressions from the exibition can be found here.

Education is essential for integration - an immediate action programme for refugees

The TUM is opening up its courses of study to refugees with a guest student programme. This is the TUM's reaction to the challenges presented by the present stream of refugees coming to Germany and offers refugees, who can no longer complete or begin a degree course in their country of origin, a wide range of support to enable them to continue their studies.

Full information about the immediate action programme can be found here.
