Before Studying

The School of Natural Sciences and TUM want to make your start of studies as easy as possible. Therefore, you will find numerous additional offers and information on this page to facilitate the beginning for new students. Additionally, central and decentralized offers and information for pupils are available on this page.

The MPIC Student Council is here to support you with advice and assistance. We are the largest student council association at TUM.

  • TUM offers for school groups - at schools or at TUM campuses
  • Programs for girls and young women - You want to experiment, learn about university life, and find out if natural sciences or technology are for you? Then participate in programs exclusively for girls and young women!
  • Unitag - Do you have a special talent for math, computer science, natural sciences, or technology? Do you want to deepen your interest outside of school? Then you're in the right place!"
  • Looking for an internship? Feel free to contact us directly!
  • GoBiochem is a program organized by students of TUM, aimed at high school students in the 11th and 12th grades who are interested in natural sciences

Food Chemistry at TUM

In the Food Chemistry program, you will study the chemical reactions that occur during the processing and preparation of food. You will learn about various ways to influence the essential properties of food – whether it’s taste, smell, safety, or health. Whether it's developing sustainable methods for food preparation, using alternative proteins, or understanding toxic ingredients – with a degree in Food Chemistry, you can contribute to healthy and safe food (in german language).
