Corona: Effects on teaching and application deadlines (as of 25.03.2020)

  • Due to the current situation, the application deadline for master’s degrees has been extended until 30 June 2020 for winter semester 2020/21.
  • Due to the current restrictions in university operations, we currently cannot make any statement as to whether it will be possible to move to Germany and start a degree program in the 2020 summer semester. Therefore, we recommend that international students who have received admission for the summer semester 2020 defer their studies to the winter semester 2020/21. Admission to the program will remain valid for the winter semester 2020/21. To defer your studies, you need to submit a new application via TUMonline during the regular application period for winter semester 2020/21 and upload your documents. You can find further information on how to defer the start of your degree program on the TUM website.

Studying at the TUM Campus Straubing

The exploitation of fossil resources, environmental degradation and the associated climate change will change our lives. This will force us to fundamentally rethink and change towards a sustainable way of life and economy. The search for environmentally and climate-friendly raw material and energy sources as well as sustainable economic forms plays an essential role.

At the TUM Campus Straubing, researchers and students rely on renewable raw materials instead of crude oil, coal and natural gas. The aim is to support the transformation of the current economy based on fossil fuels into a bio-economy.

If you want to change the world in a sustainable way, the TUM Campus Straubing offers various possibilities for studying. Although all courses of study pursue the goal of qualification in the field of sustainability and bioeconomics, the choice of the course of study can lead to different emphases depending on personal interests.

The focus of research and study at the campus is on the areas of chemical use and energy recovery, the development of sustainable materials and research into economic aspects relating to the production, marketing and use of renewable raw materials. By choosing a course of study and various optional modules, students can specialise in one area or cover a broad range of sustainability topics.

Due to a particularly high supervision ratio, the described choices and the close connection of basic and application-oriented as well as interdisciplinary research and teaching, the studies at the TUM Campus Straubing respond very well to the interests of the students, enable flexibility, offer a view beyond one’s own nose and thus prepare very well for the professional challenges.

The following Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes can be studied on campus. You can find an overview of all courses of study of the TUM in the field of life sciences here.
