About TUM Asia

As the first German academic venture abroad, TUM Asia opened its doors in Singapore in 2002. German in its roots and Asian in its approach, TUM Asia combines an emphasis on industry readiness and innovation with a distinct dedication to be relevant to Asia and its development. TUM Asia has seen over a thousand global graduates come through its Master programmes, including graduates from Asia and Europe.

TUM Asia currently offers five Master of Science programmes. The Industrial Chemistry, Integrated Circuit Design and Green Electronics programmes are jointly offered with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) or National University of Singapore (NUS). The Aerospace Engineering and Rail, Transport and Logistics programme is offered exclusively by TUM Asia. Our international faculty hail from Germany and more, and their wealth of knowledge from various fields provide a spectrum of experience for the students to glean from.

Recognising the demand for engineering excellence in Singapore, TUM Asia partnered Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) to offer Bachelor of Science programmes in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and Chemical Engineering in 2010. It has also set up TUMCREATE in June 2010 to propagate research programmes, where scientists and researchers from both Germany and Singapore can work together for the advancement of science and technology. With the support of the National Research Foundation of Singapore (NRF), researchers at TUMCREATE focus on developing innovative systems that incorporate safety and reliability with functionality and energy efficiency in electric vehicles.
