Made at TUM: Reforms introduced at TUM between 2006 and 2011

TUM’s “Experimentation Clause” (1999) inspired modern higher education legislation in Bavaria and has influenced other federal states in Germany and Austria. Following a trial period of several years and international evaluation, the “TUM model” was fully integrated into the Bavarian Higher Education Act, as amended in 2006. One reform to emerge from this was the Supervisory Board, which is comprised of 50% internal members and 50% external members. In addition, TUM has initiated a number of structural projects in recent years.


TUM School of Education (2009): This innovative faculty for teacher training and education research was set up with foundation funding of approximately EUR 16.5 million. It is the very first faculty in Germany to be dedicated entirely to training teachers in the subjects of mathematics, computer science, science and technology. Renowned education researcher Prof. Manfred Prenzel, the faculty’s founding dean, coordinates the international comparative assessments of education at the Permanent Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Federal States in the Federal Republic of Germany (KMK).


The 2006 Excellence Initiative has inspired many other reforms at TUM. A selection of milestones is outlined below:
