TUM PREP projects are offered by six different TUM Schools and many different TUM departments in the TUM campuses in Munich, Garching and Freising. Also for students outside of the engineering and natural sciences fields there is a lot to choose from. They can also do research in our departments of Architecture, Management, Medicine and Health Sciences, Management or Education.
