A bit about the Technische Universität München
TUM has been combining scientific expertise with entrepreneurial thinking for more than 140 years. Achievement of top results in all its core fields of education and research: engineering and economics, natural and life sciences, medicine and sports resulted in TUM being ranked the No. 1 university in Germany and among the top 100 universities worldwide according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the Academic Ranking of World Universities.

One of TUM’s advantages lies in its location. With a population of 1.4 million, Munich is often said to have a small town feel but all the advantages of a bustling metropolis. The city is clean and safe and this combined with a highly efficient public transport system makes living in Munich a pleasure. So it is no surprise that Munich consistently ranks among the World’s top 10 most livable cities.
Whether you are into mountain sports, rock concerts, opera or art exhibitions, watching a match of Munich’s favorite sons - FC Bayern Munich - or simply relaxing in the serenity of one of its nearby lakes, in Munich everything is right on your doorstep.
Even if Munich’s own countless offerings leave you wanting more, its central European location with quick and easy rail, air and road connections mean that other cities and regions such as Prague, Salzburg and Venice are only short trips away.
Last but by no means least, Munich is renowned for its world-leading companies in various fields including automotive and high-tech. The headquarters and R&D departments of companies such as BMW, Siemens, MTU and EADS are located here. As such, TUM students are well positioned to gain internships, research projects and permanent positions with these world leading companies.
Students apply in two or three phases. First, students apply via Missouri S&T's Globalminers.mst.edu portal by creating profile and filling out questionnaires and summiting the required documents. Then, students apply to the chosen school via the Global E3 website. Detailed information on the Global E3 application process can be found here. If accepted, the student would complete the post decision materials via GlobalMiners.mst.edu. Please note that sometimes the host university would also require students to submit an application for the purposes of university processing.
Students wishing to apply for more then one program have to complete separate applications for each program/university. Students are encouraged to apply for minimum of two programs to increase the probability of placement. Seat at the chosen school is not guaranteed.
